About the HVPFO 
Harbor View's Parent Faculty Organization (PFO) is a 501(c)3 registered organization dedicated to promoting Harbor View students' health, well-being, and educational success through strong parent, family, and community involvement. Although similar to a PTA (as they are both 501(c)3's) Harbor View's PFO is independent of any national organization's constraints. Our purpose is to provide programming, staff, parent volunteer support, and fundraising for Harbor View Elementary, its students, and its faculty.

With the help of our parents, the PFO actively supports campus initiatives throughout the school year. Whether you are interested in working in the classroom, chaperoning a field trip, acting as a Lead Room Parent in your child's class, or helping to raise funds for the many programs and services that we provide, we encourage you to become involved in HV and the HVPFO. Your help is important and appreciated . Expect a phone call from a parent in our Membership Committee in the next few weeks to further welcome you to HV and to answer any questions you may have about our school, the programs we provide, and how to become involved.
