Marshall Road PTA is the recipient of the Safeway Foundation’s School Spirit Campaign! Throughout the month of August 2018 at our local Safeway store at 3043 Nutley Street, Fairfax (in the Pan-Am Shopping Center), shoppers have the opportunity to donate to Marshall Road. All funds raised will go to the PTA to support the needs of Marshall Road Elementary School. Tell your family and friends, and thank you for supporting the Marshall Road community!

President – Anna Moore
1st Vice President – Amanda DuFrayne
2nd Vice President – Mel Keppel
Treasurer – Laura Parker
Secretary – Helen Lee
The PTA is grateful for these members’ willingness to give so generously of their time and energy to direct the PTA’s advocacy, communication, and community-enrichment efforts next school year.
