What’s the best part of Family Night? The dessert table, of course! Well, perhaps the children would say that, but Mr. Bailey’s overview of what has been accomplished so far this year left the dessert table as merely icing on the cake. He delivered a presentation that was insightful, engaging, and fun. Paralleling the evening with the start of a school day, we sang “Psalm 1,” which the children sang in assembly at the beginning of the year. Parents were updated on the school’s financial status, the goals of education, and growing the children in grace and truth. For parents who were interested in learning more about Pinnacle Classical Academy, there was a brief overview of classical education, followed by a synopsis of how that particularly plays out at Pinnacle.
And naturally, there were coloring pages to keep the children occupied. Taking every opportunity to reinforce what they are learning, Mr. Bailey put out coloring pages of the literature they have been studying: The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland; The Adventures of Robin Hood; and The Hobbit.
At the close of the presentation, there was some time for students to show their parents around each of their rooms, and for parents to visit with teachers. The children love their new school facility, and especially enjoy all of the room for running about and playing! We hope that each of the parents are equally as impressed as the staff is with the space Covenant has generously shared with PCA.
By the end of the evening’s festivities, it was clear that Family Night at PCA is more than another school function, and that Pinnacle Classical is more than simply a school – it is a family. The candidness and camaraderie amongst parents, teachers, and children makes PCA a special and unique place where the children love to learn and learn to love.
