Summer School Information

Summer school begins Monday, June 5, 2017, from 8:15 AM - 2:15 PM and ending June 29, 2017. The summer sessions are Monday - Thursday weekly. There are no sessions on Fridays.


Schools across the district received test scores last week and there were additional scores delivered this week. Some students were only recently notified of their Georgia Milestones retests, which caused a delay in

creating bus routes, as well as hiring additional bus drivers.


The summer school administrators are requesting that you bring and pick up your child each day until the bus route information is finalized. The DeKalb School District's transportation department is working diligently to create routes for all students attending summer school. We appreciate your cooperation, patience, and understanding.

How Does Our Garden Grow?


It is that time of year again when we ask for volunteers to pick a week to water the sweet potatoes in the PCMS garden. As you may know by now our potatoes grow to record size and we donate them to the Malachi House at St. Patrick's Church across the street to feed the less fortunate. This is a great lesson for the kids but we can't do it without the help of volunteers. If we get enough volunteers, the weeks can be shared. The following week is still available:


July 23-29th


Please email Anne Bustamante if you are interested in volunteering and she can fill you in on the details. 


Parents - Your feedback is appreciated!  

How did we do? Please complete this survey and let us know. Thank-you.
