The 2016 / 17 school year is now well underway. We are so blessed to have welcomed back our school families and we have also welcomed some new families this year. The children are busy learning what they need to learn for the year and the seasons are changing. We will soon be meeting for the Fall Society Meeting. The Society Meetings are a fun gathering at the school which happen twice a year. We all meet together and hear from the various committees that run the school. We also get to hear from the board chair as well as the principal. The evening is then capped off with some sweet treats and a little time for fellowship. Do put the date on your calendar!
June 2016 marks a very special month for Penticton Christian School. This year we are graduating 7 students. These are very special young adults that are now equipped to go out into the world and be successful at whatever they set their minds to.
Whatever path you decide to take after graduation just know how proud we are to call you PCS Graduates!
It's hard to believe that yet another school year is coming to a close! We are preparing to host our final Society Meeting of the year this June the 9th. We do hope you can join us. It's a neat evening that allows each of the committees that run the school to give you their latest updates. I find this to be an evening that really fills up my heart with all the good works that go into a school year. This one has been no exception. Afterwards there will be tea and coffee and a few goodies. Come and enjoy!
We are working in earnest to get a good grasp of the numbers for next year. There's many different layers of planning that need to go into a school year. Everything from student numbers, teachers and support staff need to be planned out in advance. If you are coming back that's great - let us know! If you are considering joining our school community equally as great - let us know if you'd like a tour or a chat!
Penticton Christian School is pleased to be hosting Ready, Set, Learn on April 20th. This is an open house for parents and children that are ready to start school in September. The open house is a chance to meet the PCS teachers, staff and get a tour of the school. Children will have activities to complete and the friendly atmosphere will show them that school really is a fun place to be. We hope to see you there. RSVP would be appreciated.
If you have a child born in 2011 you are undoubtedly planning for September. It's a big milestone when your little person is ready to start school. As the parent you want to make sure that you are making the best possible choice to set your child up for success. We would strongly suggest that you tour a few schools. Tour your public school option and your independent school option and make decision that feels right for your family. As a mother myself I can honestly say that independent school was one of the best decisions I've made as parent. The result is a happy well educated, well adjusted child. It's just that easy.
Our PCS grads are preparing to host a fun night for the school and the community. Everyone is welcome!

We are just delighted to learn that yet again this year we have been honored as one of the best Private Schools in Penticton. We prefer the term Independent School, but yes our peer group is the same. Thank you so much Penticton for this acknowledgement! We work hard to make sure that we live up to your expectations!
On August the 8th PCS had the distinct pleasure of entering a float into one of the largest parades in the Okanagan! 81 floats graced the streets of Penticton in a show of fun times and sparkles. Our PCS float was well received and enjoyed by all. As a float rider myself, I particularly enjoyed that our float drew applause from those parade goers up and down the sidewalks of Penticton. It was a joy to participate in! I'm also fairly certain the children has a most wonderful time and Scott had the honor of pulling the float with his jeep! We kept all the decorations so look for us again next year!
Good times were had all around! We'll always need smiling faces to ride the float!
