Election Results Are In
Thank you to everyone who cast a vote in this week's election for our two open board seats. Congratulations to Jessica Berry and Erik Glenn who will serve our school for the next three years.
Saying Goodbye Is Never Easy
Over ten years ago, PCK opened its preschool under the outstanding leadership of Kristi Resler. She built a program that is widely recognized for its excellence throughout the Parker community. PCK Preschool & Junior Kindergarten students enter kindergarten ready to excel at a high level, and their ongoing academic achievements make us PCKproud. Many of our K-8 students acknowledge the exceptional start they received in our preschool. We are sad to see Kristi leave PCK as she embarks on a fresh journey with the State of Colorado's new Department of Early Childhood. In this role, she will make a difference not only for our preschool students, but for children throughout the state. Thank you for your years of service and dedication to the students of PCK, Kristi. We wish you all the best!

We finally had a warm, sunny day without wind on Monday. Our 4th graders took advantage of the beautiful day to do their DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) time outside.
Butter Makes It Better
Mrs. Dow-Peterson's kindergarten class learned how cream turns into butter in the science lab last week. They then danced to "The Chicken Dance" while shaking bags of cream until they each had a thick and delicious treat to take home.
Thank you to the Eravelly family for bringing our staff delicious Krispy Kreme doughnuts this week. They were a big hit, and we appreciate your thoughtfulness!
