For more than 100 years, Pacific Union College Elementary School has provided quality, Christian education to children in kindergarten through eighth grade. Our diverse curriculum features a strong focus on core subjects, integrated with art, music, sports, culture, and Christian values.
Sacred Concert this Sabbath The PUC Elementary Christmas Concert is scheduled for this Sabbath in the PUC Church Sanctuary. The service officially begins at 11:15 a.m., but lower-grade children are asked to leave their stringed instrument on the front pews of the church when they come to Sabbath School at 10:00 a.m. They are then asked to leave Sabbath School early in order to arrive at the sanctuary by 10:45 a.m. for practice and final tune-up. Upper grade students are asked to arrive in the Sanctuary for rehearsal at 10:00 a.m. All students participating in the program should wear dress black and white - any additional costumes will be added when the children arrive at the church on Sabbath morning. Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.
Christmas Break & Spirit Day PUC Elementary is scheduled to close at noon next Thursday, December 15, for Christmas Break. Students are invited to wear festive Christmas attire on the half day of December 15 in honor of the season. Extended Care will be available from noon until 5:30 p.m. that day.
Parent Club Leaders We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to Parent Club Co-leader Doree Fuller. For three plus years, she has selflessly given of her time and energy to plan and set up for events, to manage school fundraisers, to show appreciation to our teachers and staff, to put together bulletin boards, and the list goes on. Because of her busy schedule, she has requested that we find someone to replace her in this role. While we will miss her - and the grace she has brought to this position - we also want to respect her wishes and find a new Parent Club Co-Leader (Co-Leader Claire Spencer is willing to continue in her role. We want to thank her as well for her time and service to the school).
If you, or someone you know, is willing to take on Doree's responsibilities, please call the front office at 965-2459.
7th Grade Class Featured in "Essential Park Guide" Lee Dalton, a writer for the publication "Essential Park Guide," wrote about our 7th Grade class in the Winter 2016 edition. In his article about the Lava Beds National Monument near Tule Lake, California, Mr. Dalton wrote of experiencing the arrival of our PUCE students who were visiting the park on the annual Mt. Lassen Trip.
At first worried that his peaceful vacation would be interrupted by a noisy group of children, he went on to compliment Mr. Crow on his leadership and preparation, and the students on their conduct. He wrote of being impressed by how efficiently our 7th Graders set up camp and got quietly organized and described them as "...something special."
While on this four-day expedition, students are able to apply all they have been learning in the classroom about geology, earthquakes and volcanoes. Mr. Crow has been taking students on this trip for 22 years. We are proud of our students and Mr. Crow, who represented our school in such a positive way.
