About & Contacts

What is the FFO?

Family Faculty Organizations (FFOs) are volunteer parents & faculty that help raise funds for and organize extra curricular programs and events. The Sunrise Drive Elementary FFO operates by the Sunrise Drive Bylaws, and operates within the purview of a district wide FFO.

What does Sunrise FFO do?

We support the vibrant learning environment at Sunrise with extra academic and family events. We budget over $30,000 from donations and fund raising to grant requests to enrich our kids educations.

How can you help?

Attend FFO meetings (check the calendar), make a donation to the Spirit of Sunrise, and volunteer! Every little bit makes a difference.

2023-2024 FFO Officers

The officers and the program/event chairs are our best volunteers so please reach out to them to say “Thanks!” and ask how you can help too!
