Performing and Fine Arts Committee (PFAC)

MCHS has approximately 900 students actively engaged in a myriad of performing and visual arts, including Choir, Band, Dance, Drama, Stagecraft, Art, and Ceramics.  The Performing and Fine Arts Committee is a parent-run organization that works to support the Art Department at Carrillo through fundraising to provide for equipment, supplies, and consultants for classroom and performance use.  Additionally, the PFAC serves as the booster club for all the arts at Carrillo.  We are a committee of the MCHS Parents Association, a 501c(3) organization, and donations made to FAC are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS.

Be a part of the Arts at Carrillo!  Please join us the fourth Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Staff Conference Room (through the tall metal gates).

If you would like to volunteer or make a donation, download the form here and return it to The Fine Arts Committee, c/o Maria Carrillo High School, 6975 Montecito Blvd, Santa Rosa, CA 95409 or drop it off in the school office.
