It is a Frightfully Delightful Time of Year at PCK!
It will be no tricks and all treats at PCK tomorrow, October 28th. "Boo-tiful" costumes of all kinds will be on display in our school-wide parade and Trunk or Treat event. To get you in the spirit, here is a bit of candy related trivia. Candy corn has existed for more than 100 years. According to legend, a Wunderlee Candy Company employee named George Renninger invented the confection in the 1880s. The Goelitz Candy Company (now Jelly Belly Candy Company) started producing candy corn around the turn of the century and continues the tradition today.
Some Important reminders for a fun and organized day tomorrow:
Costumes must be such that students are able to use the bathroom independently
Masks are allowed to be worn in the parade only
Costumes may not include any weapons or be gory in nature
Trunk or Treat participants are permitted no earlier than 12:30 pm. Visitors are permitted to arrive no earlier than 1:45 pm.
Parking is available for visitors around Center Park Loop
Please be sure to drop off your candy or party donations at the front desk with Mrs. Amick.
PCK will not be celebrating Halloween on Monday, October 31st. This will be a normal school day with normal uniform rules.

All donations will go to The Bob Woodruff Foundation as part of our Veterans Day observation. This will be the first year PCK has supported this incredible organization. The Bob Woodruff Foundation ensures that our nation's impacted veterans, service members, and their families, have access to the highest level of support and resources they have earned, for as long as they need it. Donations will be collected at each entrance during morning carpool.
A Message From the PTA
PCK PTA Fall Butter Braid Sale is underway! You can register your student at the link below. Once you verify your email, you will gain access to your Seller website. Please remember that all pastries will be delivered to school for pickup. Each Seller will deliver pastries to their customers. Pastries must remain frozen so clear your freezer space!
Sale will close on Thursday, 11/10 at midnight. All orders will be delivered to school on Thursday, 11/17 at Afternoon Carpool. For large orders, please pick up at 2:45, outside the main entrance. All other orders will be delivered to your student's classroom.
