Thank You, Parents
Than ks to the generous support from our wonderful group of parents, PACCNS was able to provide the school with several new trees planted this summer. In addition, new playground equipment was also added to our infant and toddler play area. We are extremely grateful for the generosity and continued support of PACCNS through our events and fundraisers throughout the year.
