Let Your Voice Be Heard

Let Your Voice Be Heard by Legislators!
Posted on 09/04/2019

Dear Avon Grove Charter School Parents,

As students return to classrooms for the start the 2019-2020 school year, our State Legislators are also preparing to return to Harrisburg. AGCS is asking for your help to tell Pennsylvania State legislators about our exceptional school. It is our time to let our collective voices be heard, be the Power of One, be Loud & Proud, and celebrate how Our School Rocks. Now is the moment to connect with our Representatives and let them see, firsthand, how AGCS Soars!

As most of you know, Governor Wolf has recently proposed a series of reforms for charter schools. Over the course of the next few weeks, we need your support. Help our elected officials truly appreciate what Avon Grove Charter School does for your child. Hearing from you, the parents and guardians, will help legislators make fair decisions that support Pennsylvania Charter Schools.

Here are several ways you can take action:

  • Personalize the Sample Form Letter and send it to your Legislators (see Legislator Contact List for your representatives).
  • Call and invite them to tour our neighborhood school that is progressive, successful, innovative and inclusive.
  • Use the power of Social Media – share your passion with your legislators, that same passion that is so fearlessly shared on the parent forum. When posting, use the hashtag #IAMAGCS

Here are some highlights:

  • Building a Collaboratory for cutting edge programming and student/teacher engagement
  • Providing 1:1 technology so every student has personal access to a computer
  • Increasing the impacts of our students’ community service on the community and on our students
  • Promoting an exceptionally supportive environment where students are celebrated for their contribution to the school and community
  • Nurture a personal connection between administrators and students where every student is known, appreciated, and encouraged
  • Creating Wolfpack mentoring opportunities for upper class students to share their love of learning with elementary students
  • Integrating modern tools like video and social media into the classroom experience
  • Inspire passion for lifelong learning one student at a time

We are so proud of what we continue to accomplish for our students and our community. We are so thankful for your support, encouragement, and collaboration. Now is a great time to share your enthusiasm for our school with your legislators. Tell them what this school means to you. Tell them what a difference this school has made for our students. Tell them how valuable our students’ accomplishments are to our community and our great state of Pennsylvania.

Let them know…I Am Avon Grove Charter School.

Warm Regards,

Kristen Bishop
Head of School
