What’s the best way to know what is happening at school?

Welcome to the Pathfinder PTSA! 

Pathfinder is a special place that recognizes each student as an individual with different strengths, needs and interests. The magic of our school begins with the administrators, teachers, aides and specialists who work with our kids every day. But it is also because of parents like you. Your contributions help create an environment where everyone can learn – and have fun doing so.

We encourage you to participate in our PTSA community – join the PTSA website, donate to fundraisers or volunteer your time. We’re glad to have you! 

Stay Informed

  • PTSA General Meetings: Attend PTSA General Meetings held in the evening on zoom now in October, January and May.  Stay informed and involved with the work of the PTSA.
  • PTSA meetings – PTSA meetings will be posted on the website – all community members are welcome to join, whether you are a PTSA member or not.

Our PTSA website has been redesigned and upgraded to support the community, providing classroom groups and messaging features for connection among all our families. Join the website to see PTSA & school news, get information about events and connect with your community.

Class group – a private group for your child’s class. Once you’ve joined the website and logged in, select “Groups” and Request Access to your child’s class to connect with other parents in your class. Or keep an eye out for an invitation in email to join the PTSA website – you do not need to be a member of PTSA to join, just respond to the invitation to create a login. Once all first day packets have been received, we will be able to send out invites to all families. Keep and eye out in the beginning of October. We encourage you to connect!

Facebook – Pathfinder School-Community Communication Tool. Ask to join this parent page in which parents share information and discussion. This is a great source of information and is not a PTSA page.
