PCKproud Day Tomorrow
Tomorrow is the first Friday of the month so it is a PCKproud day. Students may wear PCK spirit wear or shirts from any PCK activities, along with blue jeans or uniform bottoms. No other bottoms are allowed, including leggings. Let's see that PCK pride tomorrow!
Don't Forget To Sign Your Student In
Please remember that all students need to be in their classrooms at 7:55am. If there are no carpool workers outside when you arrive in the morning, you must park your car, come inside, and sign in your tardy student. Thanks for helping us get class started on time without the interruption of late students.

Learning From Heroes Of The Past
Last Friday, our 2nd graders presented their annual Wax Museum. Each student dressed as a significant historical figure, wrote a presentation about the person they portrayed, and shared it with the students, staff, and parents visiting the museum. They blew our socks off with their knowledge and outstanding presentation skills. You make us PCKproud, 2nd grade!
Young Entrepreneurs Shine At Market Day
Our kindergarteners learned valuable business skills at their Market Day last Friday. Students made products then sold them for "kindie cash" to students and staff members. They learned how to count money, how to greet customers, and other important life skills. Well done, kindergarten!
A huge thank you goes to Tania Thadeus for all of her work collecting donations for the Gala auction. She is not a member of the Foundation, but she has worked tirelessly to help out and has collected over 20 donations from local businesses over the past month. She did this for the auction two years ago as well. Thank you for your dedication, Tania! We all benefit from your hard work, and you make us PCKproud.
