“When families and schools work together and support each other in their respective roles, children have a more positive attitude towards school and experience more academic success.” (U.S. Department of Education study)
Families are children’s first and most important teachers, role models, and nurturers. At Placer Academy(PAC), we believe that strong family engagement is critical to promoting our TK-6 students’ healthy academic and personal development. That’s why we are a “Parent Cooperative School”. We welcome parent involvement in every stage of your child’s journey – and see ourselves as partners in student success.
A Home for Homeschoolers
Distance learning has pushed many students out of classrooms and into living rooms. Whether your child has been homeschooled for many years or just started due to COVID-19 regulations, we think you’ll find the transition from distance to school-based learning at PAC to be a positive one. Homeschooled parents often comment on the ability to maintain a strong connection with their child’s education as a primary benefit of enrolling at PAC. If you have questions, we can connect you with other families who have made the jump from homeschool to PAC – and are glad they did!
Communication is Key
Placer Academy teachers communicate regularly with our families. Whether it’s a note sent home, email exchanges to answer any questions that may arise, weekly class newsletters or parent-teacher conferences, you’ll stay up to date on your child’s learning throughout your years at PAC. We also welcome questions and comments from our families – because we are partners in your child’s learning.
Volunteer Your Way
As a public charter school, PAC was founded by families who wanted an alternative to traditional public school. Family engagement has remained at the core of who we are and today all PAC families are encouraged to volunteer a minimum of 30 hours per year. If that sounds like a big commitment, we have lots of opportunities to get involved and even families with the busiest schedules find convenient ways to engage here!
All families are also invited to join us at campus events, including concerts, performances, and art shows. Our recent Open House showcased student’s artwork and projects they worked on throughout the year. And this spring’s Kindergarten African Safari Day featured student presentations to PAC families and friends.
Our PTO is Looking for YOU!
The Placer Academy Parent Teacher Organization is an active group of caregivers that support our school with fundraising and special activities. With their help, we were able to fund our future playground (estimated completion Fall 2022) – and this year we added student enrichment opportunities for all ages. Our PTO welcomes new members throughout the school year. Join a meeting and find out how you can be part of this amazing group!
PAC relies on our families to offer enriching academics in a tight-knit community. Find out more about how you can get involved and enroll today!
