I must say I am highly impressed with this organization. I am a parent of Short Avenue Elementary School and was a bit concerned about the school before my daughter began school there but, once I got to see all of the parent involvement, teacher dedication, and amazing kids, all of those fears drifted. I give credit to Friends of Short Avenue for showing me that a couple of caring parents can really make a difference and change a school. The group is fairly new (coming up on 5 years) and they have done so much. They have written grants to beautify the school, they have increased parent involvement, but most importantly they have given hope to the children who deserve a school equivalent or better than a private one. GREAT JOB FOSA!
