Dear PCY Family,
I hope you are all enjoying our summer break! Although it feels like summer has just begun, there are just a couple of short weeks left until the start of our 2018-19 school year! I am excited and honored to continue to serve you as PCY PTA President, and about the programs and activities we have planned for our school community this year. The PTA board and committee chairs have been hard at work over the summer planning for the upcoming school year. We hope you will be as excited about all the events we have in store as we are. 

Still time to soak in the summer sun and relaxation. Just a few reminders for you in the next couple weeks! 

I am looking forward to welcoming all new and returning families to PCY. Please remember to mark your calendar for our first PTA meeting on Thursday, August 16th at 8:15am in the MPR. Here you will find useful information on PTA and school-wide programs, as well as many of the volunteer sign-ups for the year, including room representatives. 

 Should you have any questions prior to school beginning, do not hesitate to contact me at

Warmest regards,
Valerie Talbert
