What does the Falcon Familia do?

Ways you can help the Familia

The Falcon Familia is a nonprofit that collaborates with the Phillips community to enrich your child’s school experience through fundraising, volunteering, and community engagement.

We do this this by:

● Sponsoring field trips

● Supporting school events and classes with the help of Parent Volunteers

● Sponsoring Teacher Appreciation Week

● Sponsoring class and school events such as the Back to School cookout and Winter Workshop

● Sponsoring incentives such as the Falcon Cart

● Designing and selling the school's yearbook

We make this all possible through fundraising, recruiting and organizing volunteers, and with LOTS of help from our community! 

Everyone is welcome to attend our general meetings, and we will never require dues or a financial investment to be part of the Falcon Familia. You're part of our family just by being part of the Phillips community!
