Friends of Ericson Foundation

Friends of Ericson Foundation was formed in 1990 by a group of parents, staff and community members to raise funds to help support educationally enriching programs at Ericson Elementary School.  Everyone who has a student at Ericson Elementary is automatically a member of the Friends of Ericson Foundation.  We would like to encourage everyone to join and become involved in the Friends of Ericson Foundation.  We are Partners Responsible for Inspiring Dedication to Excellence in Education (PRIDE) and hold a desire for every parent to contribute in some way to making our school a better place.    
The success of our Foundation depends on the help of volunteers and our community.  We need volunteers in order to continue our mission of financial support to the students and staff of Ericson Elementary. 
Friends of Ericson Foundation meets the 2nd Monday of every month at 5pm at Ericson Elementary School.
