Chester Community Charter School Students to Participate in National School Choice Week

Pennsylvania's Largest K-8 Charter School to Host Events During National School Choice Week

CHESTER, PA--(Marketwired - January 29, 2016) -

WHAT: During the week of January 25, 2016, more than 3,000 students of Chester Community Charter School (CCCS) will participate in a nationwide initiative, National School Choice Week (NCSW), which does not advocate for any particular form of educational choice but does encourage "choice" among parents in educational institutions for their children, and celebrates the families who have chosen to attend traditional public schools, charter schools, parochial schools, private schools and homeschooling.

On Friday, Jan. 29, members of the media are invited to join 75 families of Pennsylvania's largest K-8 charter school, on its East Campus, as they participate in "Paint with a Scholar" Night, wherein students and parents are given an art lesson by CCCS art instructor Nicole Diettrich. This event will be done in a style that is reminiscent of "Painting with a Twist," an instructor-led "painting party," which is popular among adults. Arts and music programs have been more comprehensively ingrained into the CCCS curriculum.

Other National School Choice Week programs, including "Crazy Hair Day" and "Twin Day," will take place on the West campus. This is CCCS' second year participating in the National School Choice Week, and the school will continue to implement this program to ensure choice among parents, and as support for their students.
