Parent Involvement

PUCS was built on the principle that involved parents make a school stronger while encouraging students to take their education seriously. An additional benefit is that working towards a common goal brings people together.

We ask each family to contribute 24 service hours* to the school each year. Below are the events and activities that would not exist if parents did not support the school. As you can see, many of the school’s activities depend heavily on parental support. Please consider where you could best invest your time and talents at PUCS.
