Join Shallowford's PTC

The Parent Teacher Council (PTC) is an official organization of families, teachers, and staff of Shallowford Presbyterian School that intend to facilitate fundraising and volunteering events for the school.

The PTC organizes fundraisers to provide support to our art, music, PE programs, and more. We assist staff with activities such as library helpers and after-school activity coordination. And last but not least, we celebrate our wonderful teachers and staff through events like Teacher Appreciation Week and Be One For One (BOFO).

The PTC wants to ensure that scholarships are fully funded for families who need them, and to robustly support our Specials programs such as art, music, Chrisitan education, computer lab, library, and PE.

Joining the PTC

Joining the PTC is an important step in becoming involved with daily life at school. The strength of our school lies in the relationships that we build with one another, our teachers and staff, and the great kids who attend SPS. The PTC is the major fundraising group for the school.

PTC membership is $25, a small investment that covers costs of flyer printing, Spring Auction start-up and much more. To join the PTC visit:  


The PTC sends out a monthly eNewsletter, keeping PTC members informed of the latest happenings at SPS, through the eyes of the PTC. You must be a member of the PTC to receive the newsletter!

PTC Meetings

Meetings are held quarterly and have a predetermined agenda to ensure that important information is discussed and shared.

Volunteering with the PTC

As stated in the parent handbook, SPS requires families to give 10 hours of school service each calendar or academic school year; and volunteering with the PTC is a great way to fulfill that obligation! There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer throughout the year, which are spearheaded and managed by the PTC.
