January Cane Catalyst

You would never know by walking into her classroom that Mrs. Hacker is a first year teacher. Mrs. Hacker engages students with hands on, collaborative activities to gain student interest in the content. She provides students with opportunities to explore Animal Science outside of the classroom as well. She took the initiative to start an FFA charter at our school which now has close to 40 members. Animal Science was one of the most requested elective courses for the second semester, which is a testament to the awesome work she is doing with the students at our school! She builds relationships with students and works well with her colleagues. She has been a great addition to the PCMS team!

Early Check-outs

Students will not be allowed to check out early after 2:50 PM. If you need to check your child out, please do so prior to this time. Keep in mind that, when you check your child out early, he/she is missing very valuable instructional time. Every minute counts!
