A Letter From Our Vice Director
Today marks the last Thursday newsletter of this school year. If you’re like me, you are quietly questioning where this school year went and how it is almost over. Even though we are closing out our 2021-2022 chapter, we have some monumental celebrations ahead of us. First and foremost, I want to congratulate this year’s 8th graders on a tremendous year. I can say with absolute confidence that we are graduating students who not only are academically ready for the challenges of high school and beyond, but we are graduating students with outstanding character, grit, and determination that will give them every advantage in life. I am proud of each and every one of our graduating class! Our second celebration is the hard work that all of our students put in this year. I have seen some amazing transformations from all of our students in every grade. After watching countless character lessons, participating in character assemblies, and seeing our MAPS results this spring, it is evident that students are making growth in all areas in leaps and bounds. I am beyond amazed at the dedication and fortitude that our students and families have shown this year. We have had some challenges, but we have persevered and have become stronger for it. And for that, I cannot celebrate you enough. Finally, I want to acknowledge our entire PCK community. When we set out at the beginning of the year, our goal was to open the school back up to everything that has made us great. That included volunteering, field trips, school events, and most of all, our sense of community. It has been an absolute marvel to see parents back in the building, helping out in any way they can. While I would call this a tremendous success, we will continue to work on ways to include parents in their children’s educational process as much as possible. We want to hear from you. We want you to volunteer as much as possible. And we want to make this a partnership with you that provides the best educational environment for our students. I can say with all honesty, that this has been an amazing year, and that I am looking forward to continuing the success we have all come to know here at PCK in the years to come. Thank you for all that you do. We are better together.
