The Covenant Experience

Parent-Teacher Community

Partnering with Parents

Parent partnership is essential to the success of both child and school and remains one of our top priorities. With consistent communication we invite parents, with love and a shared interest in the growth of our children, to become part of the conversation. From parent coffees with the Heads of School, to family events like Fall Fest and Covenant Carnival, to parent education programs and speakers, we offer a variety of events to bring families together.

The Parent-Teacher Community (PTC) is a group of parents who love our school and are committed to growing, benefitting, and serving The Covenant School. The PTC’s goal is to facilitate clear communication between the parents and the Covenant staff and administration. The PTC serves as a source of information for parents about the ins and outs of upcoming school activities, volunteer needs, ideas for fundraising, community fellowship, and school spirit. Our hope is that through participation in the PTC, you will make new friends, have fun, and discover the unique gifts God has bestowed upon each of us!

PTC Board Member

Through my involvement with the PTC, I have been able to connect with other families from both campuses, and I have appreciated the opportunity to work together with administrators to serve the needs of the school. It is a true community.

Parent University

Parent University is a resource page designed to help parents navigate adolescence and teenage years with their children.
