Online Grading Book

We have a new online grade book! As Engrade is no longer available, we are working on entering info into the MyEd system. Thank you for your patience with this. We will provide parent training sessions if needed. If you need more info, please see the parent email or contact a school staff member.

Garbage Pickup Tomorrow (Thur)

Just a reminder that we will be spending part of tomorrow cleaning up our neighborhood. We are looking forward to serving our community. So far the weather suggests a sweater, sunscreen, water (and potentially a snack) are all good items to bring. Good walking shoes and rubber boots are also needed. It’s always a great feeling to see things looking better when we are done!

Upcoming Events

Happy long weekend to all our families! Here are a few items to note:

Mon, May 23 – No School

Wed, May 25 – Last swimming day (a fun day!) for K-Gr 6

Thu, May 26 – Garbage pick-up day – We encourage all our students to participate and are looking for parent volunteers as well, particularly for K-2 & Gr 3-4. Service is an integral part of our educational program as we develop young people to be great community citizens.

This is an important day for us to give back to our community, making our environment healthier and prettier for us and for others. Our staff are thankful for this opportunity to serve alongside our students and have fun while doing it!

Fri, Jun 3 – Field trip to WAC Bennett Dam – This will be a school-wide field trip and parents are invited to participate.

Tue, Jun 28 – School Awards Day – Parents are invited to attend our awards ceremony. More information to come.

Full accreditation for six more years – In addition to our BC Ministry of Education evaluation completed this past fall, we recently completed our full school evaluation by the Seventh-day Adventist Education system, which has over 900 schools in North America. The accreditation team found we showed high quality student learning and demonstrated goals and plans for continuous school improvement. We are thankful to have received full accreditation for another six years and appreciate each staff member for a great job done! Thank you also to our parents and students who participated in the surveys and interviews for the accreditation team. They said our students represented the school well.

Plans for high school students – We are reviewing goals, classes and plans with our high school students for next year and future years. More details to come about an information session for Gr 6-8 parents and individual appointments for Gr 9-11 students.

We hope each family has an enjoyable long weekend and wishing our Grade 12’s well on their class trip!

Blessings,

Mrs. Atherton

MOVE out those BOTTLES (Bottle Drive)

PCS Parent Committee Important Information – May 17, 2022

Just a reminder that May is “MOVE out those BOTTLES month!!”

So continue to round up your recyclables that will fetch a dollar, and round up your extended family and neighbour’s recyclables (with their permission of course) …. and take those BOTTLES down to the Bottle Depot for a refund. Then, (please), bring that refund out to the school. ☺ 

Our goal is $500! To make this a very exciting activity Mrs. Landon has created a “pop can” thermometer beside Mrs. B’s door, so we can watch our progress to meet our goal! When you bring in your receipts from the bottle depot, please give them to Mrs. Landon or Mrs. Siller. 

And…in June we will announce our grand total, and……the top COLLECTOR will win a prize!  

Happy Bottle Collecting

Monday – Pizza Day

Monday is the start of our Week of Prayer and so we’ve chosen to make the day special with a free pizza day! Please send snacks and/or whatever else your child may want to eat along with the pizza (fruit, veggies, etc.).

Pizza is jointly sponsored by the Chetwynd Public Library (as a thank you for participating in their card project earlier this year) and our Student Association.

Have a great weekend!

Did you know?

Did you know this week is teacher appreciation week? We encourage you or your child(ren) to write a note of thanks to his/her/their teacher(s) for all the effort they put into our program. They are what make the program at PCS so special.

Did you know our senior football team achieved third place in the tournament? We are proud of them for working well together as a team and representing our school well in their attitudes and actions. A big thank you to our sponsors who made it happen: Mr. McAfee, Mrs. King and Pastor & Mrs. D.

Did you know we still have covid tests at school? If you need any, please let us know. As always, we encourage those who are not feeling well (from any kind of bug) to stay home until symptoms are better.

Did you know we are completing a full school evaluation? Some of our students participated in student interviews today. Thank you to those students and to all who filled out surveys prior to this week.

We are thankful for warmer temps today and for the Burman choir coming to present in our building this evening. We invite all who are able to come out and listen to their performance!
