Early Check-Outs

We need YOUR help!

The PCMS Leadership Team met this summer and reviewed the responses and feedback provided in our Vision and Mission Survey. There were many commonalities and trends in the responses from teachers, other staff, parents, and other members of our school community. The team collaborated to draft two working mission and vision statements. The drafted statements are included below:

Mission Draft #1 - Our mission is to connect students, families, school, and community.

Mission Draft #2 - Our mission is to develop positive relationships, support student individuality, and build skills for future readiness.

Vision Draft #1 - Our students will be Productive individuals who are Confident and Motivated to be Successful in THEIR future.

Vision Draft #2 - Our students will be adaptive and flexible problem solvers who are purpose-driven, functioning members of society.

You can see actual pictures of the leadership team's work below. We would love to have additional feedback on these working drafts from parents and community members. Click here to contribute your input toward revising our school mission and vision statement!

School Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Students may be dropped off no earlier than 7:30 am. The instructional day for students begins at 8:00. If students arrive after 8:00 am, they will be considered tardy. All students who are tardy MUST be accompanied by an adult when signing in at the front office.

Due to traffic backing up in the afternoons, we are going to have to make a change with the pickup locations. 7th graders will now also be picked up in the back lot. Please see the map above as a reference.
