Parent Circle


The mission of the Parent Circle (PC) is to serve the school as a community-building body. The Parent Circle organizes volunteers for our Seasonal Festivals and other community projects and events.

Parent Service Hours

The Parent Circle provides opportunities for parent service and encourages all parents to participate. As a Charter School, Golden Valley depends on parents to volunteer. If not for volunteer hours, funds budgeted for supplies and programs directly related to the children would be much less.


The Parent Circle meets monthly. For meeting dates please contact the PC Chair.
