A Look Ahead

Thanksgiving Challenge!

There are many things associated with Thanksgiving; turkey and dressing, a week-long break, Black Friday? But since 2020 continues to provide so many challenging events to our lives, how about this year we dedicate the whole month of November to finding joy and finding the GOOD things that we are thankful for.


Every day until November 30th, PCHS is going to post a picture on Social Media of what we are thankful for and we challenge you to post your pictures as well.

It may be a beautiful sunset, a simple treat, a cup of coffee. Or it may be a person that you love or a place that makes you feel comfortable. Chances are that as we try to find the good in each day, we will feel happier. We may feel a little less stressed. And hopefully, we will realize how truly blessed we are.

I know as we focus on the positive and try to find ONE good thing every day, we will find it. And because of it, our lives can be happier! And we invite ALL of you to join us!
