March 7th is now an Optional Teacher Workday; no school for students. This is due to deteriorating conditions in the upper corridor of the western end of the district.
There will be no school on Saturday.
Parent Portal Now Open
The PowerSchool Parent Portal is now available for parents and students. Parents may use the Parent Portal to see grades, attendance, class schedules and other information. It is an Internet-based resource that allows parents to monitor and track their child’s academic progress.
Got Ink Cartridges? **January/February winner: Sydni Turner**
Please put ink cartridges in a baggie or envelope with the child’s FULL NAME and teacher’s name. Next drawing will be soon.
The media center at PCIS would like to invite you and your child to come in on Monday afternoons for “after-hours” library time! The library will be open until 4:30 on Mondays only beginning January 27.
Students will be able to use all of the resources of the library for research or just browse and check out books for fun!
**Students cannot stay after school and wait on parents to arrive; parents must bring students to the library for the after-hours session. **
Please contact Mrs. Moore if you have any questions.

We Want READERS!
Parents, we need your support! Reading 20 minutes everyday is a small request of students' time. It can be completed in the car, while you prepare dinner, or before bedtime; have your child read aloud to you and ask questions about the story or let them share their thoughts. Visit http://www2.ed.gov/parents/read/resources/edpicks.jhtml for additional suggestions for helping your child with reading.
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”- Dr. Seuss.
Please take a moment to look at the website (http://www.reading-rewards.com/) with your child and see how much they have read this year!
Mrs. Black's and Mrs. Parker's classes went live with NASA today, 12-5-13! They discussed Earth, satellites, and made observations about remote sensing.
Congratulations to Mrs. Ballard on winning this year's Bright Ideas Grant!
