Coming up!...
Pro-D Day - No Classes
Friday, Oct 25


Attendance Note
As we near the end of October, we are noticing that some students and families habitually arrive late for school. The opening of the day/class is a time for pulling the class together as a learning community. It is important for students to be present for this, and for classes to not be disrupted by late arrivals.

While we understand that traffic, appointments and emergencies may cause students to be late from time to time, we encourage students and families to make an extra effort to be on time (or early! :) for school. 

Thank you for honouring the work of our teachers and the educational program at PCS by making it your family's habit to arrive on time for the school day.

SoFund Will Be Starting Up Soon!

Please bring any cans or bottles you accumulate and place in the four large blue bins, just inside the elementary school primary entrance (across from Mrs. Strauss & Mrs. Hackett's room).
The donations help raise funds and keep your storage tidy, a win-win!

Welcome to Laura Rand 
Grade 1 & 2

How do you spend your time? 
I love getting outside as much as I can, either going for a hike, run, riding my bike to work, or walking with friends. On the other side of the spectrum, I love to read a good book on a rainy day. I also enjoy cooking and playing my ukulele. 
What is the best advice you have received?
Just because you have an idea doesn't mean you have to share it.
What inspires you about PCS?
I am inspired by the authenticity of our community. I am amazed by the people and how they are willing to share their lives with one another, and the love and support that people respond with is beautiful.
