PCS HAS A NEW YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND IT’S FOR PARENTS!

The Parent School Partnership YouTube channel went live this past week. This channel is for you – the parent! We will be touching all all aspects of your child’s education.

Our first video series is for the High School parent and how you can come alongside your student to help with the college search. The next video of the series will be posted next week.

Our next video series is for parents of Middle Schoolers. We touch on paper organization, setting-up a homework station at home, and establishing a calm morning routine. We finish off the series with an interview with Mrs. Hontz our 6th grade teacher. She gives amazing wisdom from her many years of teaching and her love of middle school students.

We need your help! A YouTube channel can be VERY hard to get momentum going. Here’s how you can help. We are a tiny fish and a massive ocean!

1. Watch the videos even if they don’t apply to you at this point. It’s really important to watch the entire video. YouTube likes that!!!

2. Subscribe to the channel. You do need to be logged-in, but it’s FREE!

3. Always “thumbs-up” the video.

4. Comment – even a simple “thank you” helps.

5. Please share – post this on Facebook, Instagram and/or email it to a friend who would benefit! All these help to trigger the YouTube algorithm and eventually YouTube will suggest our video to people who will potentially watch – outside of the PCS family!

FINALLY – we need your suggestions! What questions or struggles do you have, as a parent, when it comes to your children in school. Please email these suggestions to parentandschoolpartnership@gmail.com.

2019-2020 OVERVIEW

As you are beginning to plan for the year, please refer to the 2019-2020 Calendar Overview for important dates!

PURCHASE OF A PERSONALIZED, COMMEMORATIVE TILE!

Now that we have officially opened our new activity center, we are also going public with our capital campaign, “Building for Excellence.” This campaign focuses on Students of Excellence, Faculty of Excellence, and Facilities of Excellence. Please consider purchasing a personalized, commemorative tile that will be assembled into a beautiful mosaic to be part of the permanent bench located in the foyer of the new Activity Center. This purchase contributes to this capital campaign, demonstrates your support of the school, and inspires others to do the same!

PCS art teacher, Mary DeClerico, will hand-craft each tile complete with a custom inscription (e.g. your family name, “in honor of…,” or “in memory of…”). We are also challenging each graduating class to collect enough money to buy a custom tile to represent their graduating class (e.g. Class of 1985, Class of 2025). We are hoping class reps will spearhead these projects, collect the money, and order the tiles. If we sell more tiles than can fit the bench, the mosaic will expand beyond the bench.

Directions for how to PUT YOUR OWN PERSONAL STAMP ON OUR NEW ACTIVITY CENTER can be found here.
