Fort Worth Country Day’s Parent Faculty Association hosts community-building events throughout the year to foster a sense of belonging among parents, guardians, students, faculty and staff. In addition to hosting fun events, the organization raises funds through activities like Carnival, Bingo, Pumpkin Patch and the spring FWCD Party. With the funds raised, the PFA gives back to the School. Below are some of the ways the PFA enhanced FWCD this year with grants to purchase the following items: 

Campus Improvements

  • A $150,000 pledge to name the Lower School Academic Support Coordinator Room in the new Lower School
  • New outdoor furniture for the Upper School (near the south entrance by College Counseling)

Community Engagement and Inclusion

  • Monitor similar to those used in Middle School and Upper School to create an elevated display about inclusivity and various cultures and facts for students

Fine Arts

  • Pipe and drape for campus events
  • Marly Dance Floor for FWCD Ballet and the Ballet Conservatory


  • A new field groomer (retiring the 20-year-old groomer) for the softball and baseball fields
  • Athletics wall graphics in the Patton Field House Athletics Office

Breakthrough Fort Worth

  • Three classroom sets (60 total) of the TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculators for students 

Tuition Assistance

  • Grant for families receiving tuition assistance for help with School-related expenses, such as events, T-shirts, etc. 

Teacher Wish Lists

  • 28 teachers had 37 of their “wish-list” items purchased. They include a slide for the Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten Playground, Smoke N’ Ash Barbecue for a Middle School history unit on Ecuador, fish and invertebrates for a science aquarium, the Solar Car entry fee for Upper School, a Jiffer Large Batch Mixer for ceramics, an international flag set for modern languages and more.
