We Are Excited To See You At Our Open House

Save the date for our Open House on Thursday, August 5. This is your time to meet the teachers, see your student’s new classroom, drop off school supplies, and get your new carpool sign. Students will learn their teacher assignments and middle school schedules via Infinite Campus before August 5.

Please come only during your assigned time window based on the first letter of your last name. This allows room for everyone to park and gives teachers a chance to greet all of their new students and parents.

A – D: 12:00 – 12:45pm

E – J: 1:00 – 1:45pm

K – N: 2:00 – 2:45pm

Summer Construction Update

The new carpet and paint in the primary wing of our building are looking great! Some spaces are being remodeled to serve new purposes, and that construction is going well. The new Learning Lab in what used to be two kindergarten classrooms is amazing! Be sure to check it out at the Open House in August!

Welcome To Carpool!

Please make sure anyone who drives your child to or from school (including you, grandparents, nannies, etc.) is familiar with our carpool process. We call the drop off and pick up process “Carpool,” even if you only drive your own family. Learn the details of how our carpool process works here. If you are new to PCK or will use a new carpool loop this year, we encourage you to practice driving through your loop to become familiar with it before school starts. If the youngest student in your car is in kindergarten or 1st grade, you will use the north loop. All others use the south loop. Students need to be able to buckle and unbuckle their own seatbelts or carseats, so please also practice this skill if needed. We look forward to seeing you in carpool!

Just Keep Reading

We hope everyone is discovering some amazing books this summer! Students going into 1st – 5th grade are participating in the Summer Reading Challenge. If your student needs a reading log, you can get it here. There will be a drawing for a prize basket for each grade level.  Students who read at least six books AND 600 minutes are eligible to win. Students going into 5th grade are to select two books from this list.

If your student is looking for a great book, here are recommendations by grade level from Mrs. Wright.

K & 1st

2nd & 3rd

4th & 5th
