December Notices

Child Sponsorship

The students at PCS have chosen to sponsor a child through World Vision. We started this project in April 2016. It is an on going project including a commitment each month of $39.00.

Our child’s name is Kalpana and she is 8 years old. She lives with her family, which consists of her parents, 2 brothers and 2 sisters in Dungarpur, India.

Sponsorship helps provide some of the following:

· Education: classrooms, school supplies, & more

· Economic Development: Helping families access business training to build a brighter future.

· Health Care: access to improved health care & disease prevention

You as a parent can participate by encouraging your child to donate a few dollars each month.

Bus Notice – Winter Apparel

For the safety and comfort of all students, it is advised students have appropriate winter apparel (winter coats, hand, head and foot wear) while riding the bus. Unknown circumstances and delays may arise at any time and it is important students are dressed appropriately for winter weather.

Christmas Concert Admission & Bake Sale

Wednesday, December 13 – We are having a Bake Sale the evening of the Christmas Choir Concert. In order to make our bake sale a success, we are asking families to please bring a baked good item (one dozen per family). Please bring your item by 6:30pm on the night of the concert. If more convenient, you can drop it off the day before (if it does not require refrigeration). Remember to only bring nut free items.

Reminders and Thank-you’s

PCS Parent Committee Note – Nov 3, 2017

Dear PCS Families/Staff/Board,

Reminders:

1) HOTLUNCH FORMS DUE: Thursday, Nov 9. ***First hotlunch is Wednesday, November 22. If you have not received your hotlunch order form you can download a copy off the school website (parents – hotlunch).

2) If your schedule has changed and you are able to help with the hotlunch or milk programs, please contact the school. Thank you!!

3) We are still looking for a volunteer for the position of Treasurer. If you are interested, please contact Mrs. Siller at the school.

Time for Thank You’s:

1) Thank you for all the support you gave to the PCS Fun Fair this year!! The students had fun bringing it all together. It was a great success! We were able to raise $1965.53 towards the gym floor!! The craft table donations helped purchase 11 Educational Kits for students in Nigeria through ADRA.

2) Thank you to those who mustered up the courage and came out to help with the firewood fundraiser. We processed 30 cords of wood, which is $6000 for the school! Without your help we would never be able to do this fundraiser. A very special thank you to the Sawchuk family for the donation of the logs, and the Bunker families for the use of their dump trucks.

Don’t forget about our Year-long Fundraiser:

Each family is asked between NOW and the end of April to bring in to the school the money from taking in bags of bottles to the Recycling Depot. We are asking each student to donate the money from 2 large bags of bottles – up to a max of 4 bags per family. Last year we raised $1013.75. With 100% participation we could double that this year!!

Thanks for your support!

Dori Shankel (PCS Parent Committee)
