PCK Weekly News

Rise And Shine
While we know it can feel early, please remember that morning carpool ends at 7:55am. All students need to be in the building no later than 7:55 so they can unpack their backpacks, get their supplies, and be in their seats by 8:00am. We understand morning carpool can get backed up, so please try to arrive early to allow for this possibility. Also, as long as you are in the unloading area, students may get out of the car themselves (if they are able) and do not need to wait for a carpool worker to open the door unless they need assistance. Students arriving after 7:55 need to enter through the main entrance to the school, and those arriving after 8:00 must be signed in at the front desk by a parent.
Reminders From The Lunch Room
When sending a lunch from home, please remember to pack a fork and/or spoon if needed. Our lunch room does not supply utensils for sack lunches. Students ordering hot lunch will have the appropriate utensils provided with the lunch.
Also, please remember that soda is not allowed in the elementary lunch room. If you bring your student lunch from a fast food restaurant, please opt for a milk or juice rather than a soda. Thanks for your help with this!
Butter Braid Orders Go Home Today
Check your child's backpack if you ordered Butter Braids. All orders are going home today and need to be stored in the freezer. If you have a large order (more than 6 items for students in grades K - 2 or more than 12 items for grades 3 - 8) or if your student is absent today, please pick up your order from 2:30 - 2:45 at the main entrance to the school. Enjoy your treats!
Square 1 Art Orders Are Due Monday
Grandparents love receiving gifts of art, and Square 1 Art makes it easy to turn your student's creation into a useable keepsake. All orders are due Monday, November 22. Contact Mrs. Barker with any questions.
Don't Forget To Send An Extra Mask
We are almost out of the kind of masks our students like wearing when they forget to bring one from home (or they lose or break the one from home). Please make sure your student wears a mask from home and also brings a spare one.
From The Foundation at PCK
It's that time of year again - the Annual Giving Campaign is off and running! This year, the Foundation's main goal is to fund our playground project. The playground is 20 years old and needs some serious TLC. All funds raised through the annual giving campaign will go towards the new and improved playground.
Don't Miss This Month's Cougar Cast
Learn about the character trait of dependability, Einstein rings, Betelgeuse, and radioactive material in this month's episode of Cougar Cast. Our students are doing an amazing job with these productions!
Do You Need Child Care During Dibels Testing?
On Monday, December 6 and Tuesday, December 7, our kindergarten through 2nd grade students don't have class, and will only come to school for their scheduled Dibels testing. If you need child care on these days, our Core Care Club may be able to help. They are currently finding out if there is interest in full-day care for these students, so please submit this form if you are interested.
Also, please note there is no Core Care Club November 24 - 26, or over winter break.
Fun With The PTA
In order to help our amazing PCK staff celebrate the holidays, the PTA is inviting families to donate holiday cookies! The staff will celebrate with a Cookie Extravaganza on December 14. Click here to get the details and sign up. Thanks for making the season merry and bright for our staff!
Stand Up For Safety
Thank you to Tony Le, Jonathan Thiessen, and Lokesh Thakkalapatti for being our Safety Dads this week. We truly appreciate the time you spent with us keeping our perimeter secure, helping with lunch and recess, and assisting with other activities as needed.

Thank you to the Beck family for bringing fun holiday treats for our staff. You are the best!
Since we won't have a newsletter next week, allow us to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving. All of us here at PCK are thankful for the wonderful students and families who make our school so special. Thank you for all you do!
