Bancroft Parent–Faculty Association (PFA)
The PFA is a collaborative of families, faculty, and staff whose aim is to foster a deep sense of community on campus by augmenting and complementing the school experience. There are many ways to participate and we encourage you to seek out your grade representatives or division liaisons, or drop a note directly to the PFA president at PFAPres@bancroftschool.org.
Please check the school calendar for all the major activities sponsored by the PFA, but we will also reach out to you throughout the year with reminders and calls for help. PFA meetings are held monthly and are open to all.
