Welcome to Paddock Road
The Paddock Road Community Club (PRCC) extends a warm welcome to new parents or guardians of students for the 2020-2021 school year! As a parent or guardian of a Paddock Road student, you are a very important part of the success of our School and Community Club.
About Paddock Road Community Club
The Paddock Road Community Club (PRCC), an organization similar to a PTA, is made up of parents or guardians of Paddock Road students. The purpose of the Community Club is to work cooperatively with school staff to provide quality education for the students; to raise funds to improve the educational process for the students; to be an organization that promotes family activities and involvement in Paddock Roads’ success; and to keep abreast of Westside Community Schools and community issues in order to serve and support Paddock Road staff and students.
Everyone is welcome and invited to attend PRCC meetings. Are you looking for ways to get involved but not sure you have the time? If you only have a little bit of time to give or you have more time to give, we have volunteer opportunities for everyone that help support Paddock Road in all our activities.
Starting in September, PRCC meetings on the first Tuesday of every other month in the Library at 6:30 p.m. Child care is often provided. Please join us and learn how you can make a difference by volunteering at Paddock Road. You may also contact any PRCC Officer to find an opportunity that works for your schedule.
