Supporting Our Littlest Learners Makes the Biggest Difference
Study after study shows it: early childhood education is crucial not only for the success of our students - but for successful families and a successful community. That's why PCEF donors support the PCSD Preschool program, and why families love it.

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for the Pre-K program. It is precious, educational, and loving.” -PCSD Preschool Parent

Quality, affordable preschool increases high school graduation rates, years of college completed, and lifetime earned income.

When the achievement gap is addressed before kindergarten, it limits the need for expensive interventions in early elementary years.
Student Appreciation of Teachers Has Never Been Higher
Shayla Mellin, TMJH 8th Grader
As we interviewed dozens of students this fall, one thing came through loud and clear above all else. Teachers are the number one reason kids are happy to be back in school or are successful with remote learning.

In this month's Student Voice Series, eighth grader Shayla Mellin and sophomore Julissa Celestino discuss what they love most about their teachers.
Scholar Circle Grandparent/ Grandchild Art Lesson Was A Hit!
Scholar Circle families had a wonderful time attending our virtual Elementary Visual Art (EVA) lesson for grandparents and grandchildren. Parley's Park EVA Specialist Melissa Allen taught a wonderful lesson based on the art of Romero Britto.

For us, the best part was seeing the joy of families coming together, even over Zoom!
