While the role of the Parent Community has remained true for more than 60 years, the ways in which it engages parents has evolved.
Penn Charter's Parent Community works to support our school and help make the overall experience engaging, enriching and meaningful for the entire family. As a Penn Charter parent or caregiver, you are already considered a member of the Parent Community. We hope that you will take an active role as we provide opportunities to connect with the school and fellow parents, building community throughout our years together.
Our Parent Community thrives on your participation! Volunteer to help at a teacher appreciation breakfast for our faculty and staff, or manage a service project or an event like our Fall Festival. Whatever you decide, what's most important is that you engage in this community in a way this is most comfortable for you.
We are excited to be continuing our Parent-to-Parent workshops this year, a program that allows us to share our talents and passions with one another.
Events like the tailgate party, Middle School Family Night, parent pop-ins and socials are all supported by Community dues. Please contribute to help fund activities that build community and create a sense of school spirit and belonging that enrich the PC experience. Dues are $40.
The Parent Community page on the PC Hub provides contact information for all Parent Community division chairs, class chairs and committee chairs.
We look forward to meeting our new families and reconnecting with returning families in the upcoming months, and hope that you and your children enjoy this school year!
