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. The PAT plan fun events like the Back-to-School picnic/ice cream social, Fun Run, Bingo Night, Rummage Sale, Teacher Appreciation Week, Box Top Competitions,Teacher Appreciation brunches for the parent-teacher conferences. The funds raised are used to help the Moscow Charter School and their teachers get the funds needed to purchase items for the classrooms that they would not be able to buy within their budget. 
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.
