Are you ready for a wacky, fun-filled way to celebrate excellence at Penn Charter? 

Great Day to Be a Penn Charter Quaker, our annual interactive day of giving, returns on Thursday, March 11!

In March 2020, Great Day was the last day before the school went on break and the region into stay-at-home orders. Has it been hard? YES, definitely. But our community has come together in remarkable ways, our students, teachers, staff and parents have shown incredible resilience, and we've found some silver or as we like to say, blue and yellow linings — some new kinds of joy. 

Great Day 2021 is all about celebrating the amazing work of our teachers and students and giving us all a boost of fun. 

This celebration of educational excellence and the student experience returns for a sixth year and will be jam-packed with ways everyone can participate in the activity and impact the school in a big way. 

Join in the fun online and make a gift on March 11, to support Penn Charter! Your participation will help make it a Great Day to Be a Quaker.
