Dear PCY Family,
 
This week is Teacher and Staff Appreciation week! We have the opportunity to show our Teachers and Staff how much we appreciate all they do. We are beyond fortunate to have the most incredible Teachers and Staff ever! They are constantly going above and beyond day after day to ensure our children have the best environment and curriculum available to them. Id like to say a very special THANK YOU to each of you Teachers and Staff members. You each bring something special to our school and we are grateful for each of you and your unique and special gifts! 
 
Join us on Wednesday at PCY for Mathzilla! We wish our PCY contestants luck!
 
Lastly, Friday is a Collaboration Day with 11:35 early release. 
 
Have a wonderful week! 
Warmest Regards, 
Valerie Talbert

    School Supply Box Sale - Open Until May 20th
It is that time again...time to purchase school supplies for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please click the link below or go to the PCY PTA website & click the supply box button to order your boxes.


If you are new to PCY, this is our annual School Supply Box Sale.  Every year the teachers compile a list of required school supplies for all the students in their grade.  A link to the 2019-2020 School Supply list will be posted on the PTA website at www.pcypta.org  Every student is responsible for providing all the items on the list that are required for their grade.  In an effort to make this easier on the parents, the PTA has an annual School Supply Box Sale which gives the parents the opportunity to purchase one box that contains all the school supplies required for a particular grade.  These boxes are ordered and paid for now and then delivered & picked up right before school starts in August. If you order a box you just pick up the box during one of the pick-up dates in August, then take the contents of the box to school on the first day of school & you are done.  You are NOT required to purchase a box through the sale & are welcome to purchase your supplies on our own. The sale is offered as a convenience that takes at least one thing off your never-ending list of things to do & is an easy way to make sure your child has the materials they need by the first day of school.  

AGENDAS:  All 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders will need an agenda.  Agendas are included in the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade school supply boxes.  Agendas are available through PCY PTA. For those people that do not order the supply boxes, agendas will be available for purchase for $10 at the school supply pick-up dates in August.

TECH ITEMS:  There will be additional technology items required for grades 3-6.These additional tech items are not included in the standard school supply boxes but are available through the school supply box sale as add ons to the standard box.  You may also purchase these tech items without purchasing a supply box

You can either use PayPal to pay or use a credit card.  You do not need a PayPal account.

If you are not purchasing a School Supply Box, please print out the Supply List that can be found on the www.pcypta.org website starting next week so you know what items you will need to purchase for your child for next year.  This list will include the additional tech items.

The deadline for orders is May 20.

Thank you for supporting the PCY PTA by ordering your supplies through us.  We hope this will save you time and stress and you will love having everything in one box come the first day of school!
 
School supply box pick-up will be in August before school starts.  Check the PCY Calendar and Cougar Tracks starting in July for the pick-up dates and times.
