Welcome to Friends of Princeton Charter School!

Friends of Princeton Charter School is the school’s parent-teacher organization formed to support the needs of PCS. All parents and teachers in the school community are members of Friends and we genuinely welcome your input and hope that you get involved.

Monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month. Location is the Marsee Center at 8:10 am, with refreshments starting at 8:00 am. Meetings generally last one hour.

Meeting dates for 2019-2020 are on September 12th, October 10th, November 14th, December 12th, January 9th, February 13th, March 12th, April TBA, May 14th, June 11th

Friends of PCS organizes many fun and community-building events throughout the year, and provide services that help the school. Friends of PCS also provides funds every year as requested by the school, to be used where needed, from support for after-school clubs, school trips and support for the PCS Capital and Endowment Fund.  The school counts on substantial support from Friends raised at our Annual Spring Benefit.

How to get involved

The Friends of PCS welcomes parent volunteers on any and all levels.  Our goal is for parents to feel good about contributing to the school in any way that fits their schedule.
