Welcome to The GLOBE Academy Parent Teacher Community Council, or as we like to call it, our PTCC! Our vision is to be an engaged community that supports the learning environment and unique culture of GLOBE.
The PTCC will build collaborative partnerships amongst all stakeholders through fundraising and community events to promote open communications, enhance educational experiences, and develop learning opportunities to impact our greater community.
Participation in the PTCC is open to any parent/guardian with children attending GLOBE, GLOBE faculty and staff, and members of the greater community who are supportive of the vision and mission of The GLOBE Academy. All are welcome and encouraged to get involved.
Have you volunteered lately? GLOBE and the PTCC are always in need of volunteers. Check the Volunteer Page for current opportunities. Thanks for giving of yourself for the good of our kids.
Most charter schools use a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) or a PTCC structure, rather than a traditional Parent Teacher Association (PTA). This allows for flexibility and innovation, which helps serve an evolving charter school. It also means that GLOBE doesn’t have to follow the rules of a national organization, but can instead ensure that our structure is tailor-made to suit our school’s needs.
The PTCC Leadership Team is comprised of 4 Officers (2 Co-Chairs, 1 Secretary, 1 Treasurer), all PAC Leads (1-2 per PAC), and designated teacher representatives. The Leadership Team's role is to collaborate with the Head of School and Governing Board, to help guide the work of PTCC, and cross coordinate as needed across PACs.

Parent Action Committees (PACs) are narrowly focused groups of parents charged with tackling specific challenges or planning specific aspects of GLOBE growth and development. PACs meet regularly and are open for any parent to join. Each PAC is comprised of multiple Work Groups focused on advancing specific areas within our school. Workgroups within each PAC are dynamic and subject to change in response to changing conditions. They are:
Financial Literacy (e.g., JA in a Day)
International Host Family Recruitment
Math World Travelers
Room Parent Coordination
Earned Income: Spirit Wear, Spirit Nights, Royalty Programs
