Community is Thriving …

Dear Families,

We anticipate some sunny weather and over 450 people walking the track today for our annual walkathon! This is the main fundraiser for our Mary Collins Education Foundation (MCEF) that supports our music, garden, and spanish programs. The goal of the Foundation is to supplement the core program with opportunities for every child to reach their potential.

Purpose: For students to benefit from a well-supported staff and a rich educational environment. They attend a school that embodies values like curiosity, creativity, personal integrity, and independent learning while learning fundamental academic skills.

Please make every effort to become a member and consider an employee matching grant possibility. There are many businesses that will donate if you ask. Thank you for helping us reach our goal! Please visit www.mccvedfoundation.org for more information and see how you can share your time and talents.

Solar Panel Construction: Just an update on proceedings. Most of the foundation is in place and they will be beginning to construct the steel beams next. Please know the students’ safety remains our number one priority at all times and students have been instructed to stay behind the caution tape lines. They do enjoy watching the construction in action! 🙂

Parent University update: Thank you to those of you who gave me your email to find out more about how you can support our school. I plan on making that my priority in September, to meet with you all and see how we can partner to support all students, all needs, all the time.

Voluntary committees: Thank you to Gabriella St Clair (parent)for volunteering to be on Gary Callahan’s Superintendent Advisory Council as well as staff Carrie Caudle, and Dee Oloman-Howard. This is a great opportunity to hear Mr. Callahan’s educational perspective for PCS and gather input form all stakeholders. If there is a community member that would also like to join this committee, please have them send me an email at fhansell@petk12.org. Thank you.

Thank you for your partnership!
