A Message from the Principal
Spring is in the air! I am thankful for the nice weather and the promise that a new season is coming. It is difficult to believe that we only have 6 instructional days until Spring Break and the end of the 3rd Grading Period. When we return on March 21st, we will begin the last 9-weeks of this school year.
Please continue to stay diligent with your student's attendance. We want your child here each and every day unless they are sick. Missing school can make a big impact on a student's academic and social success.
I hope each of your families has a wonderful and memorable Spring Break.

Attention 5th Grade Parents
Greetings Future Pumas!
My name is David Barnes, and I am the director of bands at Park Crest Middle School. We will be hosting instrument interviews for future PCMS students, that have selected Band as one of their top elective choices, this Saturday, March 5th from 8AM - 1 PM at PCMS . While at the interviews, the students will have the opportunity to see and try all of the different band instruments we offer at Park Crest. The interview process should take around than 15 minutes and will be on a first come, first served basis. We will be set up around the cafeteria, and encourage everyone inside of the building to wear masks if they are not trying an instrument.
If you would like to see what some Park Crest Students have to say about their instruments, please watch this video:
While this Saturday is our primary event, we will host a make up interview session in early April. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Barnes at:
We are looking forward to meeting you, the future of the Puma Band!
