The Parent Community
The Parent Community is the parent organization at Penn Charter, working in support of our school to help make the overall experience one that is engaging, enriching and meaningful for both parents and students alike. “Parents” is loosely used and includes grandparents, guardians or whoever is significantly involved in the student’s life. We help new families become acclimated and involved in school life; provide volunteers for school activities and events; sponsor and organize Parent Community events; and promote closer cooperation, understanding and unity of spirit among parents, administrators, faculty and staff.
The best resources for answering questions you may have about Penn Charter are your child’s classroom teacher, the administration and the Parent Community members who have volunteered as class chairs for your child’s grade-level. In addition, the Parent Community section of this website provides detailed information about the Parent Community:

Getting Involved: Why It's Important
The Parent Community is only able to function through the efforts of parents who volunteer to help. We welcome your support in any way you can participate, from making donations for food or clothing drives, to signing up for a 30-minute time slot at an event, to serving on committees. In addition to providing needed help, volunteering is a great way to make some new friends. Please consider the opportunities and get involved in your child's school!
