Mrs. Shy truly embodies the qualities of an outstanding educator - she is skilled, compassionate, and dedicated to excellence in education. Mrs. Shy is committed to all of her students being successful. She is a team player and has jumped right in here at PCMS. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and is an active participant in school-wide initiatives. One of her strengths is her ability to connect with students. She takes the time to get to know each student as an individual, showing genuine interest in their lives, experiences, and interests. She actively listens to their concerns, celebrates their achievements, and provides guidance and support when needed. Her approachable and caring demeanor makes students feel valued and respected. Mrs. Shy has become an integral part of our school community and has consistently gone above and beyond in her role.

Attention All Parents!

Effective immediately, we will be implementing a 15 minute rule for extracurricular events at the school. It is expected that students are picked up no later than 15 minutes from the time an event ends. Students will be given one warning. If students are picked up late a second time, he/she will no longer be permitted to stay for after-school events. We want to honor the time of our coaching staff who are dedicating their time and working later hours for extracurricular events. We appreciate your help with this!

💡 Reminders

1. 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!

2. Phone Policy

Students' cell phones should be turned off and stored in book bags during the school day.

3. Dress Code

With the weather getting warmer, we want to remind you that tank tops are not permitted and dresses, skirts, and shorts must be longer than mid-thigh.
