February Cane Catalyst

This month’s Cane Catalyst Award goes to Mr. Lewis! Mr. Lewis has transitioned from being our Success Coordinator to our 6th grade Social Studies teacher seamlessly. Mr. Lewis is a team player and shows up where he is needed with a positive attitude and a willingness to learn. He is creating a classroom culture that is safe, inviting and inclusive for all of our students. PCMS is very fortunate to have an amazing educator and coach on our staff.

💡 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.
