Carpool Survival Tips
In order to keep our carpool process flowing as smoothly and quickly as possible, please have your students keep their backpacks with them in the car. Students who go to the back/trunk of the car to retrieve backpacks take more time and cause delays. It is okay if your student has an occasional poster or large project that needs to ride in the back of the car.
Cars turning into the school off of Pine Drive are asked to be considerate and take turns entering the driveway. When the flow of traffic allows it, south-bound drivers need to let north-bound drivers turn left into our driveway. We encourage a “taking turns” approach so that both north-bound and south-bound cars can safely enter our property without causing back-ups on Pine Drive. Please also pull up as far as you safely can so we don’t have the backs of cars sticking out of our driveway onto Pine Drive.
As a National School of Character, we trust all of our families to demonstrate patience, respect, and courtesy during our carpool process. Thank you!
Are You A Myth Buster?

Correction to last week’s newsletter: We will NOT be participating in the Milk Caps for Moola program through Longmont Dairy. Sorry for the confusion!
Last weekend, several of our middle school students volunteered at The Edwards Foundation. They cleaned stalls, cared for the animals, and did general help around the farm.
Are you using your King Soopers/Safeway reloadable gift cards?
Using your gift card is a NO COST and easy way to give back to our school. PCK earns 5% on all monies loaded. The fundraising possibilities are limitless! We all have to eat and put gas in our cars. If all of our PCK families spent $500 a month at the grocery store using their reloadable gift cards, it would net $138,000 annually to our school!! Currently only 6% of PCK families participate. Please consider this NO COST and easy way to give back to our school.
The holidays will be here before you know it! What a great gift for a family member. Additional cards are available at the front desk (please see Laura Parkes). New families to PCK will each receive a card in your Thursday folder in the coming weeks. If your card has been inactive for a significant amount of time, it may no longer work and you may need a new one. If you have any questions about this program, please contact Yvette Fonda at (303)257-5579 or email@example.com
