Dear PCY Family,
 
Believe it or not, November is here and Fall is in the air! As a reminder, Parent - Teacher conferences are this week with minimum days Monday through Thursday and Friday off in observance of Veterans Day! 

Thank you for all of your support with our Charleston gift wrap sales. The pick up days are next week. We appreciate your contributions to this fundraiser. 
On Wednesday, November 15, we will have our annual Jog a Thon! Students will run laps during their designated P.E. time. Help us make this the most successful Jog-A-Thon to date by registering and sponsoring your students today! ALL students will receive a FREE jog-a-thon t-shirt courtesy of our event sponsors! 

The elementary school with the highest percentage of registered families will receive $500 to be used for a school-wide reward as the winning Principal sees fit. And the "losing" school Principals have agreed to wear the winning school's spirit wear for a day! And ALL registered joggers will also receive a "Running Pass"- which they can redeem at a later time with their P.E. teacher to skip running the "dreaded mile" one day!  Register Now at www. Lcfef. Org 

Have a wonderful week!

Warmest Regards, 
Valerie Talbert 
PCY PTA President

These honorees include teachers, school staff members, parents, and other volunteers.
 
We all know at least one parent or teacher who very much deserves this honor. Please take the time to nominate that special someone by visiting our website, pcypta.org, and filling out the Honorary Service Awards Nomination Form or you can click here to print the form.  Nominations are due on November 6th.
