Dear PCA Family,

I continue to be amazed by the PCA community's response to the rapidly changing environment we find ourselves facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I am so proud and thankful for our faculty, who made a pivot in teaching and made it look natural. I know it is challenging – one teacher emailed me that week one of the transition was the hardest week of her career, but she added – she is thankful we have been equipped with every tool to continue learning.

Our students are digging in and adapting to the paradigm shift. Even though they miss the events we all love, from athletic competitions, to the musical, to walking the halls with friends they are resilient and are finding new ways to connect with friends, complete assignments and spend facetime with faculty. 

As learning continues, your feedback is a critical part of the process as we partner with you in Kingdom education. Thank you to those who have responded to  our recent survey   regarding our virtual learning platform. If you have not yet done so, it's not too late to participate.

In response to questions prompted by the survey, if you have general questions or would like to provide additional feedback, please complete the "Ask The Head of School" form in  myPCA .  For questions regarding assignments, please contact your student's teacher(s).
