About & Contacts

What is the FFO?

The Orange Grove Middle School Family Faculty Organization is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization of volunteer parents & faculty that work together to organize extra curricular programs, events and materials. The Orange Grove FFO abides by our bylaws  and operates within the purview of a district wide FFO.

What does the OGMS FFO actually do?

We fund and organize projects to make OGMS an even more enriching experience for all OGMS students, teachers and staff. We do this through parent contributions, community events, classroom supplies, teacher grants and reimbursements, volunteering, and more.

How can you help?

Attend our monthly meetings, join a committee, help with a fundraiser, or make a direct donation.

Check out the school calendar to find the date of our next FFO meeting and follow OGMS FFO on FaceBook for more news.
