Performing and Fine Arts Committee PFAC

Your MCHS student has access to award winning arts programs that complement the school's well-known excellent academics.  Each year, over 900 students actively participate in MCHS Performing and Fine Arts.  PFAC is the booster club that raises money to provide equipment, supplies and other needs for classroom and performance use.  We coordinate volunteers and promote the outstanding work students create.  We invite you to join in our efforts to enrich student achievement and life through the arts.  PFAC is a committee of the Parents' Association, a 501 (c)(3) organization, tax exempt ID 68-0385019.

We meet monthly on the 4th Monday of each month*, 6:30 p.m. at Maria Carrillo High School (faculty meeting room - enter through the metal gates by the flagpoles).  *Note: Some dates shift due to holidays or other activities.
