PUCS Parent Association

Welcome to another school year at PUCS. Every parent who currently has a student enrolled at PUCS is automatically a part of the Parent Association (PA).

The purpose of the Parent Association is to directly support the school, students, parents, faculty and staff.

Parent Association Meetings

In order to support the school, ALL parents are expected to attend the scheduled Parent Association meetings:

  • Meetings are held 2-3 times per year (see Calendar, please RSVP).
  • Meeting content includes upcoming activities, voting for board nominees, and approval of the school budget.
  • Meetings count toward your family’s Service Hours requirement.
  • Child care is provided.
  • Food is provided.

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.
