Parent to Parent: Connecting Our Community Program

The Parent Community is excited to launch this new teach and learn program where Penn Charter parents and caregivers share expertise and common interests. Members of our community will lead workshops to share their knowledge with others. Join us to learn about topics that interest you, enjoy the company of fellow parents, and connect outside of our school-related volunteer efforts. Please visit the program page to learn more about the workshops being offered. If you have a special talent or passion that you'd like to share with our community, please contact Jennifer Fiss or Laura Sibson. The marketing and promotion of a business is strictly prohibited. All workshops are offered free of charge.

Volunteer at Penn Charter

The Parent Community provides Penn Charter with support in many ways, thereby creating numerous opportunities – big and small, day and evening – for parents and other family members to get involved. Volunteers in all capacities are most welcome and much appreciated. To learn about current volunteer activities, please check out our Volunteer Opportunities page or contact Jennifer Fiss and Laura Sibson for additional information. Volunteering is a great way to connect with your child's school and interact with other parents.

Pay Community Dues Online
