Harlem Link Parent Association

About the Harlem Link Parent Association

Harlem Link’s Parent Association is an independent organization led by parents of students at the school. The PA works with the school’s Manager of Family Engagement to organize monthly meetings and workshops at the school and to provide resources and communication for parents and other school community members. The PA’s main purpose is to establish and maintain a high level of parent participation in the education of their children. Emphasis is placed on the commitment of parents to be engaged through participation in school events, community outreach, political activism and fundraising. The PA also sponsors a number of special events throughout the school year including fundraisers, outreach efforts and cultural celebrations.

The Harlem Link Parent Association officers for the 2017-18 school year will be announced soon:

Harlem Link parent:

"I like the diverse curriculum of the charter school my child attends. My daughter is not only learning the basics of arithmetic and English, but her studies are rich in science, the arts and social studies. I also appreciate the way the school makes me feel welcome as a partner in my child's education."
