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.
Spring Music Program
Tonight is the night! Our spring music program starts at 6:30 PM. All strings and orchestra members (1st through 8th grade) should arrive by 5:50 PM. Kindergarteners should arrive by 6:15 PM. Seventh and eighth graders who are not in orchestra are highly encouraged to attend and support their classmates, but this is not a requirement.
Kindergarten through 4th grade should dress in Western (cowboy/cowgirl) style. Please do not feel that you need to go shopping for new items. Kids should wear whatever they have that's most appropriate, such as a button-down shirt or plain t-shirt, jeans, and plain shoes. If they have a hat or bandanna, they can wear those too.
Fifth through 8th grade should dress in concert black and white (dressy shoes, please).
We hope to see you at our constituency meeting before the concert at 5 PM. We will start with a haystack dinner around the fountain, followed by a short meeting in the Paulin Hall choir room. We will be sharing updates on the school's status and projections for next year, as well as the final Color Run numbers.
No School Monday
There will be no school on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day. We will see you on Tuesday!
ABC Book Fair at PUCE
Next Thursday and Friday, May 30-31, the Adventist Book Center will be hosting a book fair in the PUCE lobby. On Thursday, they will be open for sales from 11:00 AM until after school. On Friday, they will be open from drop-off time until 1:00 PM. This is a fantastic opportunity to stock up on books for your children's summer reading!
Please let us know if you have any specific requests. We can contact the manager and ask him to bring the items you need.
Peace First Book Drive
First and second grade are holding a book drive to collect Peace First-friendly books for the St. Helena Children's Library. The deadline for donation is May 30. You may donate new or like-new books from home, or you may purchase books from the wish list:
Donated books should be about friendship, kindness, empathy, acceptance, feelings, and social/emotional awareness. You may also donate funds. If you have any questions, contact Karisse Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations on $40 savings!
All those who re-enrolled prior to Memorial Day will get the $40 discount applied to their July billing. Everyone else will still need to enroll before the end of June to ensure a place in classes when school resumes in August. For any families seeking financial aid for next year, it is urgent that you process your re-enrollment soon and complete the new online process to request financial aid through FACTS. Financial aid distribution will be done in the last week of June for all who have completed the request process. We are already looking forward to a fantastic year ahead. We hope you all will join us.
