Welcome Back to School!!


Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I hope you all enjoyed your summer vacation. It’s so nice to be back and I’m delighted to have your child as one of my students. 

This should be an exciting school year. We have a new classroom Associate Teacher, Brian Dyko. Brian worked this summer at SCAMP, so he's already gotten to know a few of the children and is familiar with PCS. Take a look as his profile and you'll be able to learn more about him. He'll be a wonderful addition to the class.

It's also the first year that we have two whole 5th grade classrooms! That means a lot of collaborative and fun activities to do together... projects, field trips, and even our first overnight trip to Wolf Camp (in the spring). As for the other aspects of the year, the list goes on... music, art, library, Super Shop, special assemblies, Panther Packs, after-school clubs, and our all-school holiday celebrations. And of course, I mustn't leave out math, reading, history, science, Writer's Workshop, and computer. You'll learn more about this at our Parent Coffee and Back to School Night.

I always like keeping the lines of communication open. Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions or concerns about your child. I will get back to you within 24 hours.

I’m looking forward to a fantastic year together and can't wait to meet all of you! 

Cheers to a wonderful year!
