Falcon Fest Sponsorships!

On May 26, students will celebrate academic success with a fun filled day of activities supported by the Forest Grove PTA. Parents and teachers are already hard at work making plans for another fabulous bash. We are seeking sponsors to help bring fun, age appropriate activities to our school. Many of these activities are very expensive, and this is why we are reaching out to local businesses and/or families who would be interested in a tax deductible sponsorship. Our Tax ID number is 94-6171945. Please consider being a sponsor and help us make this the best event ever!
