Get Involved

About PSG

As a Charter School, we rely greatly on input, support and involvement from all our parents.  Your time, energy and financial contributions make many of our programs possible.   In 1983, parents at Kenter organized a non-profit corporation, Kenter Canyon Parents Support Group (PSG), to raise money for art, music, drama, physical education, computers, teachers assistants and many other extras that enhance our school.  This is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization and donations to it are tax-deductible.  PSG is organized and run by parent volunteers who put on fundraisers and coordinate more than $700,000 raised annually to cover the $1550 per student it costs for our amazing enrichment program at our school.

All parents are automatically members of PSG and are encouraged and welcomed to attend PSG meetings.  During these periodic meetings you will have the opportunity to discuss ideas and concerns, meet other parents, and become involved in the events at the school.  Discussions can include, ideas for events, enrichment programs, parent education, school improvements, additional resources, and other campus related subjects. These meeting are the best resource for learning more about what is happening at your child’s school.

If you any questions, please contact Pat Hom or Nicole Raymond, PSG Co-Presidents, or Shabnam Banefshesha, PSG Membership co-directors.  You are encouraged to be an active and involved parent.

New Parents

For those of you that are new to Kenter Canyon, please see the New Parent Handbook which introduces you to our school and the many activities and events we have in and around our campus.

Volunteers are Needed!

Kenter Canyon has a great volunteer network, with many outstanding and committed parents that have helped to make our school such a standout success. We encourage you to get involved and make a difference. Please support our school by stepping up and contributing your time and talents.  LAUSD requires all volunteers to be free of active tuberculosis before volunteering. Please fill out this form and bring to your physician for a mandatory TB skin test.

Classroom Volunteers: There are lots of other volunteer positions available in your child’s classroom. Serving as the head of a class committee is a great way to develop a relationship with your child’s teacher and to meet the other parents in your classroom. Serving as a class liaison to other school committees enables you to meet other parents in the Kenter Canyon community. You will receive a Classroom Volunteer Signup sheet from your Head Room Parent at Back to School Night showing many of the classroom volunteering opportunities available.

PSG’s Volunteer Sign Up: One of the many things that makes Kenter Canyon Elementary School exceptional is YOU – our fantastic parent volunteers. Regardless of whether you have hours or days to commit, opportunities for you to make a difference abound. There is no commitment too small, or of course, too big. 🙂 Please join our parent volunteer sign up to learn about more ways you can get involved. Volunteer Sign Up
