Parent School Partnership

Volunteer Interest Form – 2023-2024

Parent School Partnership


As a charter school, the partnership between parents and the school is crucial! Every single student and family member is a part of this partnership, and we ask that you find at least one way to partner with us this year! This can be through joining the Parent School Partnership (PSP) Board of Representatives, getting involved in a committee, volunteering in the classroom, donating to the Annual Giving Campaign, and so much more!

If you are interested in working with a group of dynamic, dedicated to plan events, enrich students’ experiences, and enhancing our campus, you should consider joining the PSP Board of Representatives for the 2023-2024 school year. You can find more info on our About PSP page.

Please send any questions to GatewayPSP@rafos.org. You can also apply for the PSP Board of Representatives online here. We look forward to hearing from you!
