PCK Weekly News

From Our Director

Dear Parents,

We’ve come to the end of another great school year at PCK!  We accomplished much: we renewed our contract with the district, navigated 6 months of “mask on/mask off” directives, and our PTA and Foundation held wonderful events like the Skate City party, Gala, and Teacher Appreciation Week, to name a few.  

Our parent community came through the pandemic and has now come together to support the school in big and small ways, all very much appreciated.  The fund raising activities yielded an astonishing $250,000 that will go towards the new playground.  We are so grateful for our parent community!

Our most important accomplishment is always the education of our children.  The PCK children were happy, safe, and made tremendous academic growth.  Classroom activities returned this year and were enjoyed by both parents and students.  Who didn’t love the Science Fair in 5th grade, or the Mother’s Day event in 1st?  

We are now under construction!  All bathrooms in the main building and the Events Gym are being updated this summer.  The main building will be completely closed but summer school and Core Care Club will be running out of the 5th/6th building.

It is time to enjoy the sun and warm weather!  Have a safe and relaxing summer, and don’t forget to encourage your children to complete the Summer Reading Challenge.  We will see you back in school in August!

Mrs. Harth

Congratulations, 8th Grade!

On Tuesday, our 8th Grade classes partook in the time-honored tradition of a final walk through the halls of PCK as students.  Wednesday, they will graduate, and will hopefully return as visitors someday!
