It’s Ugly Sweater Day at PCK!
On Wednesday our staff dressed in “ugly sweaters” to celebrate the season. The students loved seeing their teachers in their funny, festive attire. The PE teachers were a big hit in their coordinated unicorn/Elf wear.
Parking At PCK
When we have special events at PCK, such as the upcoming holiday parties and concerts, our parking lot fills up. Additional parking is available in the lot on Center Park Loop, and there are marked parking spots around the loop. Please, do not park in the neighborhood, in the townhouse complex across from PCK, anywhere that is not designated as a parking space, or on Centennial Drive at any time. We strive to be good neighbors and we need your help. Please share this information with grandparents, other relatives, friends, or anyone else you invite to share in the fun at PCK.
Introducing My School Bucks
We are transitioning to a new payment processing system for things such as fees, field trips, after-school activities, athletics, lunch beverage cards, and more. My School Bucks is the system DCSD uses, so if you have a child in a neighborhood school you may already have an account, but you will need to add your PCK student. If you do not have an account, you will need to set one up. Click here for instructions on how to set up your My School Bucks account.
It’s Time For Our Holiday Concerts!
‘Tis the season for our Music Department’s annual holiday concerts. All parents are invited, and you won’t want to miss this special tradition.
Concert Attire: Students may dress up in their festive holiday attire, or may wear their uniforms to all of the concerts.
Parking Considerations: Because parking is limited at PCK, carpooling is always encouraged. Additional parking is available in the lot on Center Park Loop, as well around the loop. Please, do not park in the neighborhood, in the townhouse complex adjacent to PCK, or on Centennial Drive at any time. Parking for after-school concerts (4:15 pm start times) will be available after 3:45. Please do not arrive before 3:45 since we will still be running carpool through both lots.
