Parent-Teacher Fellowship

2017-2018 PTF Board

Parent-Teacher Fellowship (PTF) exists to improve and enhance the relationship between Mariners Christian School families and the school with prayerful dependence on God. PTF supports our school and teachers in order to enrich the children’s education, providing parents with the opportunity to participate in daily school life as well as special events and projects that contribute to the growth and success our school.

Parents are automatically a member of PTF and an important part of the school program. Involvement in PTF provides a wonderful opportunity to build relationships within the school community and an excellent way to teach children the importance of serving others. Together, parents make MCS a unique place for our children to grow in Christ.

There are so many ways to get involved at Mariners Christian School.  Complete the Parent Volunteer Form (available in late August)


In addition to volunteering, PTF is committed to raising funds needed for school-sponsored activities such as enrichment assemblies, literacy programs, and much more.  PTF partners hand in hand with MCS administration to ensure that students and teachers are provided with exceptional resources!

Teacher Blessing Fund: The goal of the MCS Parent Teacher Fellowship Blessing Fund is to give parents an opportunity to show our collective appreciation to MCS teachers, aides, and specialists, and bless them with a monetary “group gift” that is both generous and equally distributed at the end of the year. Click here to give.
