Attend A PATCO Meeting & We Will Give Your Child A Dress Down Day Pass!!

Dear UC TEAMS Charter School Parents,

Welcome back to school.   As parents, we are all looking forward to our precious treasurers acquiring and mastering all the new skills their teachers will be passing on to them.  For many of us, we know what we can expect from the teachers and staff at UC TEAMS Charter School while new parents are just as excited about beginning this new experience. 

Parent teacher organizations throughout the United States are wonderful support systems in a variety of ways for schools.  These groups organize fundraisers, provide money for different activities and events, and hold fun family activities.  It is a service for and to our children, to enhance their school experience and environment.  

PATCO is the parent and teacher community organization of UC TEAMS Charter School.  We ask parents to donate $15 per family each year.   This money gets the organization started for the year.   Currently PATCO is in need of an executive board.  All board members have served for two consecutive years in several positions within the executive board. Currently we need people with fresh ideas and visions. 

Many times working parents are worried about the time commitment, but if everyone gave a little support and commitment to one aspect or one activity we could do marvelous things.   The work-load and responsibility does seem huge when only a few people are involved, but the organization’s goals and mission could be met so easily if more parents decided to “lift” just one thing.

Over the years we have been able to help UC TEAMS in several ventures for our children and the staff of the school. We would like to have your voice and your input to benefit the next generation of children that will go through these doors.  In essence, we need you, parents, to bring your talents to the executive board.  Positions of secretary and treasurer are open for all to participate.

Best wishes for a successful school year!
