Fall Fundraising

Our Fall Fundraising efforts continue for just 3 more weeks. Suggested donation is $500 each to the PTA and FMS. If you haven't already done so, please donate today!

  • Did you know the Mandarin Teaching Aides are fully funded by Friends of Mandarin Scholars (FMS) through donations? Donate today to support the Mandarin immersion program at College Park! Visit for more information.
  • Our PTA Fall Drive Class Competition towards 100% participation is on-going, check out the updated status of your child's class and/or donate at PTA Donation!

Virtual Panda Party Hosts Needed!

Yes, we're still going to have Panda Parties this year and so far we have only two (2) parties so we need you to host one (or two)! Panda Parties are events hosted by parents and/or teachers and can be family friendly, kid only, or adults only. In addition to being a great community builder, Panda Parties raise funds for the PTA. Parties occur outside of school hours, must be virtual, and cannot use SMFC resources (e.g. Google classroom or SeeSaw). If you have any questions, please contact Winnie Tungpagasit at
To host a party, please complete this Panda Party Sign Up Form before September 18.

Panda Party Committee

We need 3-5 volunteers to handle backend panda party logistics, data entry, and promotion. Without the necessary volunteers, we will likely need to limit the number of panda parties this year. If interested, please contact Winnie Tungpagasit at
