We miss you! - A Message from Director Pam Sharrow

Hello PPC Families, first and foremost I hope you are all well and safe and trying to stay positive. You have all received one or more surveys. It is critical for us to get those back in order to know what you or your child needs. The most difficult part for all of us on this side of schooling is not seeing your children every day. We have definitely redefined what it means to be a partner in education.Thank you all for being patient during this learning time for all of us. We are coming to a close to the first week of the formal learning plan offered by MPS. There has been a few glitches but many positive interactions and excitement. The students are able to see their friends(virtually) and share on the Google platform or Zoom.
