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.
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!
Pinnacle Classical Academy is presenting a FREE concert called Slugs & Bugs, featuring musician Randall Goodgame and songs from Andrew Peterson. The family-friendly concert will be held on Friday, February 15, at 6:30 p.m. at Covenant Presbyterian Church.
The question usually goes something like this: You seem to really know your stuff and the school is so small, why don’t you just homeschool your kids? An excellent question that I can’t wait to answer! I could homeschool my kids. I know I could do it, I know it can be a great choice for many families, I even think I could do it well. But there are a few key reasons my husband and I have intentionally chosen not to homeschool our kids.
Great job students of Pinnacle Classical Academy! It was a joy to listen to your songs of praise, to see your science lessons and book reports and to watch you smile as you enjoyed each other! I am proud of each and every one of you for your hard work!
Recitation night is when Pinnacle Classical Academy really shines. I have been to four Recitation Nights over the past two years and every one leaves me amazed at how much information our kids have learned in a short number of weeks. I am always proud of the confidence and professionalism of the students and faculty, while at the same time thrilled at the little smiles and giggles and wiggles that let me know they’re having fun at school.
It takes a special person to love teaching Kindergarten and 1st grade, and Pinnacle has that special person! Renee Reed is on her second year at the school. However, one glance in the classroom and you would think she’s been doing this for years!
After three days, both my 5 year old and 7 year old were singing the first verse of Come Christians Join To Sing in the morning while they were getting dressed, in the car together over and over till they got it just right, and after dinner as a performance for the rest of the family. We don’t often sing hymns at the church we go to, but I love them. They are so rich with meaning and praise, and it is precious to see my children sing them with smiles on their faces, lost in the luscious words of Alleluia, Amen.
