F.O.C.U.S. is an acronym for Forum of Citizens Uniting the School. It is an organization that evolved out of the P.T.O. and is multifaceted in the support it provides to the school and the community. It serves as a conduit between the school and broader community and works to make the resources of the school more available to the public. F.O.C.U.S. sponsors major fundraisers to support school-related projects where school monies are not available, and it works to promote quality family life and improved community relations.
