Senior Parent Gift

The Senior Parent Gift supports professional development for faculty and staff. Because of the generosity of our parents, teachers continue to learn and to improve their professional practice — and then incorporate new ideas and methods into the PC curriculum.

In the third video in the series, seniors share why they love their favorite teachers. The Class of 2021 all had multiple favorites; it was hard to choose just one!

Watch prior videos in the series.

Your Gift Gets Matched!

The Senior Parent Gift Committee believes so much in the importance of supporting the teachers who have made an impact on our children's lives that they will match each gift, dollar-for-dollar, until we reach $30,000!

We've raised $23,731 toward it so far, and all gifts from senior parents and grandparents will count toward the match. We hope you'll join us.
