Welcome to Parents and Teachers Helping, PATH.
The focus of PATH to engage parents in community building and fundraising projects. We function similarly to a traditional PTA, but are a committee of the governing board of Orange Charter School.
PATH meets on the first Monday of every month starting at 7 PM in the OCS lunch room.
PATH works to raise funds for annual goals to support the instructional initiatives of our teachers. In the past we have raised funds and purchased SmartBoards for our elementary students and a sound system to support our middle school theater productions. This year we have a few more technology goals to meet and are excited to support our students by making our teacher’s wish lists a reality!
PATH also supports the school ‘family’ by sponsoring community-wide events including: Fall Fest celebration, pot-luck dinners, and teacher appreciation activities. We strive to ensure our teachers are the happiest in the area, by engaging in teacher appreciation activities all year long and supporting them inside the classroom and out.
