Mission Statement:

All PCCS parents and staff are members of the Parent Staff Organization.  We foster community and support the school to fulfill the mission and vision of PCCS.  We achieve this through communication, coordination of volunteers, school community development and financial means.

What does the PSO do?

We foster community and we support the school to fulfill its mission and vision.

How does the PSO do it?

We achieve these goals through our teams, which are made up of parents and staff as well as through various grant and scholarship programs. Learn more about our teams.

Why does the PSO do all of this?

The PSO is all about encouraging a sense of commitment to each other in order to make our school a healthy community and to help us all understand who we are and our uniqueness as a charter school with an integrated environmental curriculum.
