The preschool class is for children who will be 4-years-old by August 1st. Children who are 5-years-old and not yet starting kindergarten will also enjoy this class. They will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning Tuesday, September 3 from 8:15 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
The pick up line was all abuzz today as the whole school let out for the summer at noon. The little girls exchanged hugs and giggles, the older girls gave high fives and a few hugs as well. The boys of all ages were hyped up and ready for fun! Congratulations on a year of hard work and intensive learning, students. Enjoy your summer – you deserve it!
Every year, PCA hosts a Greek and Roman olympics (field day) called Greekfest. It is a day the students and many parents look forward to all year. The students dress in ancient Greek or Roman attire and families are encouraged to come in costume as well.
In celebration of the great work the students did in March with our Stories for Scholarships fundraiser, PCA recently had Literary Character Day. It was a fun day at PCA!
Once each fall and once each spring, PCA holds a very special night called Recitation. At Recitation, the students have a chance to present many of the poems, songs, chants and jingles they have learned over the past semester to a room full of family, friends, and those interested in learning more about the school. Our spring Recitation night was May 2.
Recently our 2nd and 3rd grade class presented their last book reports of the year. As usual, it was fun to hear all the stories our students have been reading and obviously enjoying. Great job, 2nd and 3rd grade class!
This week I visited Mrs. Reed’s kindergarten class and watched as the students presented their first ever book reports. They were called Shoebox Book Reports. During the reports, each student stood in front of the class and presented their book. They then proceeded to read their book report form and show the class the three items in their shoebox, explaining how each had to do with their book. The students all did very well!
At many schools and businesses, Friday is a day to dress down. Casual Friday, it is sometimes called. Casual Friday is a nice way to relax after a week of hard work. At Pinnacle Classical Academy, Friday is not a dress-down day. In fact, at PCA, Friday is known as Formal Friday. The students dress up from their normal weekly uniforms to formal plaid jumpers and skirts, pressed white dress shirts, and pants and ties for the boys. Why do we do that?
One of my favorite things about being a mom in Central Arkansas is the library system. We have a great network of libraries! In this post, I want to show you how I’ve learned to make the most of my library visits; choosing books for my family thoughtfully and carefully while keeping my library visits brief and enjoyable.
Throughout the month of March, the students at Pinnacle Classical Academy had an opportunity to participate in a creative fundraiser called Stories for Scholarships. It was like a walk-a-thon, except instead of walking, the students read books that were appropriate for their particular reading level and collected pledges for the number of books he or she read in the month of March. The end result will be a party for all the students who participated, and all the money will go toward scholarships for next year.
