Annual Fund Benefits
Thanks to the generous Can You Imagine? Annual Fund donations from PCMS families, the Foundation has been able to fund the following teacher grant requests.
- A water cooler for the gym
- Subscription fees to the Buzz Math online math skills program and the RAZ-Kids online reading comprehension program
- STEM conference registration fees for teachers
- Exciting novels for ELA/ELT students
- Competition buzzers for our academic teams
Here is what a teacher said about the new novels that her classes received, "I have never seen my students so engaged in a book before! All of my male and female students are absolutely enthralled by the story and are thoroughly enjoying it so far. Every student is engaged every class, which can be a rarity when reading."
Thanks to 6th grade Earth Science teacher Ms. Jennifer Schiff, all PCMS students and teachers will be able to safely view the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21st! Ms. Schiff submitted a teacher grant request that the PCMS Foundation funded using Can You Imagine? Annual Fund donations received from PCMS families.
The special viewing glasses meet the ISO 12312-2015 international safety standard and, when worn properly, will allow our students and teachers to safely look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through them for as long as they wish.
Thank you Ms. Schiff for your initiative that will enable PCMS students to participate in this rare and exciting learning experience!
