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 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.
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!
Thursday I had the absolute pleasure of joining the K-3rd grade classes on a field trip to Mr. and Mrs. Bush’s farm in Paron, Arkansas. Mrs. Bush teaches the upper grade students at PCA, but Thursday she stepped into the roll of field trip guide for our lower elementary students. It may have been the most enjoyable field trip I have ever been on as an adult, and it was chock-full of age-appropriate educational nuggets for the students.
In typical PCA style, they’ve introduced my children to something fun and wonderful that has great meaning and depth of truth. The chorus of their favorite song goes like this, “God made me like He made the sea, He filled it up with green and blue. He sent His Son, the only one, to fill me up and make me new.” With a catchy song like that, they now have a great biblical truth hidden in their hearts, and it’s so much fun to sing about!
Thursday I visited Pinnacle Classical Academy and found the elementary school buzzing with Valentine’s excitement. They were making Valentine’s crafts, playing Valentine’s games and sharing Valentine’s notes with all their schoolmates. And although I didn’t have a chance to visit the upper grade’s class, I hear they got to watch a movie and have a party of their own.
