A look into our new school year! Sept/Oct Newsletter
It is with great joy and gratefulness that we have officially been through the first month of school here at PTCS. It has been a beginning marked with calmness and preparedness from our students and teachers. I believe it is because the majority of our new preschool students were with us this summer at JSP Jumpstart, which allowed them to already be acquainted with our campus, staff, and school life.
Currently, our new classrooms for 4th-8th grade is still underway, please be ensured that the temporary classrooms are working out very well and your child is taken care of by our tireless staff. Join us in prayer that we will receive the permit as soon as possible.
Please also note that the TerraNova survey testing is scheduled for October 17-21 and not November 10th as shown in the previous parent calendar (an updated calendar can be found by accessing our school website). Our teachers have been preparing our students for both state standard and common core standard testing for the past 2 years so your child is very prepared for this testing period. Do note that since the scoring system is different and students are facing a new test, test scores are expected to drop during this transitional period as seem in Chicago Public Schools when they first switched to common core testing.
In His Service,
