Dear PCY Family,
Thank you to all our talented families who preformed at our Variety Show Friday. Not only were the performers entertaining and talented, it was wonderful to see our teachers, staff, students and parents all come together as a community. A very special thank you to Caren Saiet for coordinating this fun event. You did an incredible job! 

This week, our fourth grade classes will "set sail" on the Pilgrim- good luck, Mates! We also have our annual evening PTA Meeting this Wednesday, March 14th at 7:00 pm in the library. We will have our very own Sarah Gardner and Lori Arbucci discussing the1st and 4th grade transitions. We will also have Jim Cartnal as our general speaker. We hope to see you there. 

On Thursday we will be honoring our Founder's Day Recipients: Rob HajekAmber FranklinLinda HadaHeather LhotkaSheridan Sanders, and Jenni Swanson at 6:30 at LCHS. We are so grateful for your service and dedication!  We also have a STEAM Activity Night night on Thursday at 5:30.

    STEAM Field Trip - Last Call for King Tut tickets
LAST CALL for King Tut IMAX + Exhibit (April 15, 1pm)

Due to overwhelming demand, we were able to get some more tickets to the KING TUT: TREASURES OF THE GOLDEN PHARAOH exhibit at the California Science Center and the accompanying IMAX movie  Mysteries of Egypt! This exhibit is the largest King Tut exhibition and includes more than 150 authentic artifacts from King Tut's celebrated tomb, many of which the child king himself used in life and in death, including gold jewelry, gilded wood furniture, and ornate ritual objects-60 of which have never traveled outside of Egypt. You may never see these items again. NOTE: PCY 6th graders will be visiting the exhibit as a field trip during the school day. This is a separate event, open to all PCY families (and your friends / families). 

Our group price for the combination IMAX / special exhibit ticket is $19.50 per person (public exhibit pricing is $29.95 adult / $19.50 child, plus $8.95 adult / $6.75 child for the IMAX film, so this is a great deal!). Limited spots remain. Email Nina Ries to sign up.
