PCA enrollment nears 100 students for this new school year with some classes close to reaching the maximum of 15 students per classroom.

Orientation for PCA parents and students is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Aug. 18. The evening will begin with an assembly in the auditorium where the staff will be introduced and school procedures will be covered. After that parents and students will travel to the various classrooms to meet the teachers and receive more specific information on class expectations and the course of study. Opportunities for parent involvement and student extra-curricular participation will be available in the foyer with sign-up sheets on tables. All required medical and school forms are to be submitted that evening. It is imperative that at least one parent from each family attend the orientation. A fellowship time in the gymnasium with cookies and punch will finish off the orientation evening.
