Signal Hill Parent Faculty Association
The Signal Hill Parent Faculty Association (SHPFA) is an organization comprised of parents, teachers, and administrators that work together to maximize the academic experience for all students at Signal Hill School. SHPFAs purpose is to facilitate cooperation between parents and teachers in the education of their children. The organization strives to meet this challenge by:
SHPFA has scheduled the following meetings for the 2012-2013 school year:
These meetings provide an opportunity for parents to learn about the important issues facing our school and the many activities that take place at Signal Hill.
Membership in SHPFA is open to all faculty and families of Signal Hill School students. Membership forms are distributed in September and will be available at general meetings as well as Back to School Nights. Membership dues are $7.00 per family and faculty member. Membership allows you to become an active participant in SHPFA, allows you to join a committee, and allows you a voting voice. A family membership allows two members of the household to vote.
SHPFA sponsors many events during the year, some to raise money, and others to promote community spirit. See above for event dates.

There will be additional fundraising events throughout the year. Furthermore, we will continue to collect Boxtops for Education labels.
