Attention parents: Update on pilot test of the new redesigned SAT
In the April issue of the Mustang Minutes there was an article about PCHS
participating in a pilot test of College Board's new redesigned SAT and
PSAT. This pilot test was to take place here at PCHS with our current
11th graders on Thursday, April 16.
Due to logistical issues that are out of our control, PCHS will
not be giving this pilot test, and school will resume its normal, regular
schedule on Thursday, April 16.

Mustang Moment webcast.
And we always need your on-going feedback
One thing I have learned for sure is, a school a reflection of its
community. The community’s values, its hopes and dreams for our all our kids
are woven into the fabric of the school that serves it. So it is so
important – actually, essential – that we as school-folk hear you, that we
listen and understand your perspectives and ideas.
We do this in a number of ways. We talk together at parent-teacher
conferences. We see each other at musicals, concerts and athletic events. We
visit at gas stations, after church and even in the produce department of
Meijer. These conversations are so important for our understanding, yet we
know we cannot listen to everyone that way.
So for years we as a school have surveyed our students and our parents to
get as many ideas and perspectives as we can. This feedback informs our
decision making, our school-improvement efforts and the day-to-day work for
all our kids. We have been so grateful for this feedback in past years; it
has helped us continue to grow as a school and as a team of educators.
We need to continue to ask you for your
concrete ideas and your long-term hopes for this wonderful and very human
place. So below is a brief survey for parents and another for students, and
they will be open until Friday, April 3. I would really appreciate it if you
could take a few moments to give us your thoughts.
Thank you so much for your time and your
commitment to the success of all our kids.
In respect and appreciation,
Attendance office direct line:
If your son or daughter is going to be away from school just a few
minutes or all day, thanks for keeping us in the loop!
