FRIENDS OF GOETHE SCHOOL -FOGS

OUR PURPOSE

 

Friends of Goethe School (FOGS) is a group of parents, teachers, and neighbors working together to make Goethe Elementary a better school for everyone in the community. We best support Goethe with a strong team of board members and volunteers.   All parents, teachers, and community members are welcome and encouraged to support and participate FOGS activities.  There is no financial requirement for participation.  

GET INVOLVED

 

There is no shortage of work to be done.  FOGS is open to anyone in our community who is willing to lean in to offer their time, talent, or financial donations.  Getting involved is easy,  join us at our monthly meeting hosted virtually on Zoom,  sign up to volunteer your time and talent to help us execute programs, or simply email one of the board members to discuss how you can get involved.
