Welcome to the Aspen Parent Faculty Association
The mission of the Aspen Elementary PFA is to assist in making our children’s educational experience the best it can be by creating an atmosphere of community, family volunteerism and teacher/parent communication, through funding that will augment a fully rounded learning experience while inviting all people in our community to be an active part of the learning experience
Please look for all the great events planned for the 2023-2024 school year below.
For questions or more information, you can contact the PFA at: AspenRoadrunnersPFA@gmail.com
Support Our School
"Support Our School" donations help the PFA pay the salaries of Aspen's P.E., Dance, and Art Specialists, as well as instructional support staff. In addition, a portion of the funds received go to the individual classroom instruction funds used by our teachers to purchase classroom supplies. With the generous donation of Aspen supporters in the past few years we were able to purchase hydration stations and marquee, IDEA Lab and mic system for the MPR.
To submit your donation, click HERE to download and print the form. Completed forms should be submitted to the Aspen Front Office. Or you can directly contribute online by filling out this form and/or visiting our web store.

The School Cents competition is back at The Oaks mall!! Shop or dine at The Oaks and help Aspen earn a Visa gift card valued between $500-$2500.

Aspen earns at least five points per dollar spent. In addition, the school with the most dollars logged each month gets a $200 bonus! We are competing with other local schools for a chance to win.
