Welcome to the Parent Action Team!

The Parent Action Team (PAT) at Moscow Charter School is a group of parents volunteering to help make our school the best it can be for our kids.
We would LOVE to get some more volunteers to help with a variety of events, you can choose what, when and how much you would like to help out, we appreciate any help we can get. 
The PAT plans fun events like the Back-to-School Ice Cream Social, Teacher Appreciation Week and brunches during parent-teacher conferences and awesome fundraisers like our annual Bingo Night and Fun Run!! The funds raised are used to help fund special projects for Moscow Charter School, and to help meet the needs of our teachers and students and ensure they have all the tools they need for a successful year!!
