Give Back 

 

PCMS would like to invite you to partner with us and St. Patrick's Episcopal Church, to emphasize the importance of community service and giving back.

 

Beginning Wednesday, October 10, 2018 through March 30, 2019, 7th and 8th graders will have an opportunity to volunteer at Malachi's Storehouse. Once a month PCMS will do a collection drive for toiletries, diapers, hygiene kits, new socks, under clothing and clothes which will be donated to Malachi's Storehouse, The City of Refuge and the Atlanta Women's and Children's Shelter. Students will be packing and distributing food and other items to those in need. Students will be allowed to volunteer during their connection classes on Wednesdays.

 

If you would like to participate in this community service project, please see Mr. Anthony in the counseling suite to pick up a parent/guardian permission form.

Save the Date!  Student Charity Art Auction

On Thursday evening, May 16th, we will be having a Student Charity Art Auction. All proceeds will be going to Hosea Feed the Hungry. We will have a silent auction with wonderful student artwork. Does your child love to create? Then have them make something for the auction! That would be a great activity for them to do over the upcoming holiday season. We could also use donations of small pieces of unwanted furniture, etc. that we can fix up for the auction. Hope to see you at the auction!

"Can You Imagine?" Annual Fund Report for 2017-18

The PCMS Foundation thanks the families who donated to the "Can You Imagine?" Annual Fund campaign. For the 2017-18 school year, we raised over $70,000 with a family participation rate of 60%! Our goal is to have 100% of families contributing to the Annual Fund, and we will continue to strive for that in the coming year.

 

All Annual Fund donations go toward maximizing faculty effectiveness as leaders and towards supporting all students' academic and personal excellence. We put all money raised back into the classrooms for our students.  Some examples of what your Annual Fund donations purchased include: new iPads and high-powered microscopes for STEM-learning initiatives, class books, classroom supplies, teacher training support, competition registration and buzzers for our academic teams, keyboards for music and specialized math instruction, the USA Test Prep online system, online reading comprehension and math skills programs, new equipment for Peachtree TV, and water bottle fillers for the gym locker rooms.

 

Because of your generosity, the Foundation was able to achieve so much! Please consider making a donation for the 2018-19 year.  All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. If you have any questions, please contact pcmsfoundation.kmamaghani@gmail.com.
