Schools also benefit as the children are gaining experience which they might have not previously been exposed to had there been no local groups integrated into the school. Schools need more support than what they get from the Government as although they provide children with education funding for activities and trips out of school can be found difficult. Local groups made up of parents and residents of the neighbourhood can work together to help the schools in the local area. Forming a group of parents to help in their local school can benefit the school in many different ways as ideas and advice from parents, from different backgrounds, may help the experience of children with new clubs.

Center Township is one the later communities making up Beaver County, history dates back to the earliest periods of the Ohio Valley. In 1774 all lands south of the Ohio River were claimed by Virginia and slowly through the Revolutionary War become part of Pennsylvania at individual times. Prior to colonial explorers, the native Indians of the area traveled the “Glade Path” a trail crossing the original township from north to south. Today we know that path as Brodhead road, named after the Commander of Fort McIntosh. Beaver County was formed March 12th, 1800 with three townships, Southside- Hanover, First Moon and Second Moon. In 1812, the area further broke into four townships, one of which was Moon the parent of today’s Center Township. On November 24th, 1914, Center Township, a sparsely populated area, separated from the heavily populated suburban section now known as Moon. This was the result of a dispute among Moon township residents in early 1914.
