Dear PCY Family,
As we embark on this Thanksgiving Break and reflect on many things which we are thankful for, I want to share a few of them with you:  We are thankful for the devotion, care and dedication of our teachers who day after day enrich the lives of our children. We are appreciative of our hardworking staff who go above and beyond to make our school one of a kind. We are grateful for the support of our parents who enthusiastically contribute so much of their time and energy to our school every week. We are Thankful for our Superintendent and fearless school board leaders who have our children's best interests at heart. We are thankful for our La Canada Educational Foundation. Together, we see these dedicated individuals coming together to form an incredible community making a difference in our schools and in our children lives. Over these past two years, I am honored to meet and get to know you all. I am grateful  to be a part of this phenomenal community. 

Enjoy the time with your families, and I wish you a very happy, relaxing and fun Thanksgiving filled with laughter and JOY! 

Best Wishes,
Valerie Talbert
