Supporting our internationally minded learners is fun, easy, and rewarding.
As an independent public charter school, the International Charter School relies on assistance from a variety of sources—both public and private—to carry out our mission. We are grateful for our community of donors who provide financial and volunteer support.
For more information about how you can be involved at ICS, please contact Family and Community Liaison Annetti Perea at 401-721-0824, ext. 214.
4 Fun, Easy Ways to Be Involved: 1. Give to Our Annual Fund
We are building a community of annual supporters who together are helping ICS continue to excel as a school. We have identified three main areas of need:
- Students – learning materials such as books, art supplies, musical instruments, athletic equipment, as well as field trips, special guest visits, and more
- Teachers – professional development opportunities, International Baccalaureate® conferences, and more
- School – technology equipment, playground and garden needs, facilities upkeep and improvement, and more
Gifts to our Annual Fund will be used to support these needs and improve the learning and teaching experience at ICS. Donations to ICS are tax deductible.
If you prefer, you can also make a donation by sending a check made payable to International Charter School to: 334 Pleasant Street, Pawtucket, RI 02860.
2. Join or Support Our PTO
The ICS Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) promotes a variety of events and initiatives throughout the year to support ICS. We encourage you to be involved by joining the PTO, volunteering, attending an event, or making a donation.

This is a great way to help support ICS—and now it’s easier than ever! All you need is your phone—no more clipping and sending Box Tops to school.

School Improvement Team
The ICS school improvement team (SIT) is made up of representatives of our school community who are interested in making our school a better place for learning and teaching. The SIT works to address what ICS can do to improve students performance. The team’s work is to gather and analyze information that can be used to make decisions that drive changes in our school. The SIT meets periodically through the school year.
