What I Love, from a PC Parent

Middle School parent Crystal Lucas sent this heartfelt message about why she loves Penn Charter.

Testimonials like this are incredible reminders of why it's a great day to be a Penn Charter Quaker. 

My son Isaiah is a 7th grader here at PC. Although we just began our PC journey last year and are still a fairly new PC family, I've already developed a list of things that touch me so affectionately about this community. 

I love that when I drop my son off each morning, I know that he is going into the caring and capable arms of people who really want to see him succeed. 

I love that when I have a question about anything, I always feel my concerns are taken seriously and listened to with care.

I love that in such a short time, my son has made friends and genuine connections with people who are so wonderfully different than he. I love how protected and safe yet unsheltered the learning environment is at PC. 

But most of all, I love that no matter how many late nights he spends on homework, how tired he is during the 40-minute drive we take to get here each day, or how daunted he might feel facing a new challenge or assignment, my son tells me there's no other place he'd rather be. And for me – that's everything.

With Gratitude,
Crystal Lucas
