PartyBook - Opens Next Saturday, September 29th
 
Get ready for some fun PCY parties!  On Thursday, September 27th, our PCY Partybook will offer a sneak peak to see the fun and fabulous parties available this school year! PCY Party Book is an opportunity that brings together PCY families to create lasting relationships and memories.  PCY families host a variety of events from kids only, to family events, to adult only functions.  The families sponsor all the costs of the event and 100% of the proceeds earned from the sale of tickets to the parties are then donated to the PCY PTA. Everyone benefits from Party Book - you get to go out, meet new people, reconnect with old friends all while helping out our school!
 
It's still not too late to host a party! Please contact Sarah McCann at sarahsimamccann@gmail.com or Heather Scherbert at  heather.scherbert@gmail.com if you are interested in throwing a party.

Party Book will go LIVE on Saturday, September 29th. Look for the link at pcypta.org!
