Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive for the 4th and 5th grade students of SF Intermediate School. This is an extra-curricular reading program where students can show their creativity and scholarly knowledge, forming reading teams to “battle it out” in a team-based contest testing students’ comprehension of the novels which were read. Families are welcome to come and cheer on their favorite team, and see who is crowned the best of the books!
Boys Night Out
A fun filled evening for boys and their mothers or other significant person to play and spend time together.
The PTA designs and maintains the bulletin boards in the Elementary School and Intermediate School lobbies. The bulletin board in the Elementary School includes an individual picture of each child in grades K-2, with an emphasis on the second graders, as that board is about to "graduate" to the next level. The bulletin board in the Intermediate School includes candid photos of various groups of students.
The PTA's Cubs Corner offers a wide selection of South Fayette spirit wear. Themed tee-shirt sales and pop up shopping opportunities are featured several times each school year.

Fifth Grade Celebration
A day-long celebration held near the end of the school year for the fifth grade class. This celebration is a fun way to conclude the years spent in the elementary and intermediate schools and send the children off to start the next part of their journey in the middle school.
First Grade Lunch
Parent volunteers from each first grade classroom help the monitors with the children during lunch and recess. Parents have a great opportunity to see their child at lunch and share the experiences of what their child will be doing on a daily basis. The program provides some much appreciated assistance to the monitors as the children learn the lunchroom process and the rules of the playground!
Grants can provide specific funding for programs and projects that can benefit our students. We are always looking for grant opportunities and help in preparing grant applications.
