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.
Please remember that we have two Christmas performances coming up:
This Sabbath, December 8 at the PUC Church. Strings students should arrive by 9:50 AM. Kindergarten and 1st grade choir arrival time is 11 AM. The church service begins at 11:15 AM.
Wednesday, December 12 at Paulin Hall Auditorium. Band members should arrive at 5:30 PM, strings and upper-grade choir at 5:45 PM, kindergarten at 6:15 PM. The concert begins at 6:30 PM.
Everyone should dress in concert black and white (or all black) unless otherwise specified by your child's teacher. Silver and gold Christmas accents are encouraged!
Light the Night
Join your community in welcoming the Christmas season at PUC Church’s Light the Night event Friday evening, December 7, beginning at 6:30 pm in the church courtyard. Live nativity with a real camel, refreshments, and lighting of the bell tower.
At 8 pm, all are invited to attend the PUC Christmas concert by the PUC orchestra, choir, and bells.
Thank you to those who helped with food for the academy basketball tournament last weekend. The students had a great time and were so thankful that the tournament could still happen. PUC Prep and the community were able to raise just over $11,200 for Paradise Adventist Academy as well.
Reindeer Run - December 13
The new date for our Reindeer Run (previously the Turkey Trot) will be December 13 from 10-11 AM. The first $6000 will still go toward our music program. Any proceeds after the first $6000 will go toward the Christian education needs of the Camp Fire victims. Your child should have brought home and updated Reindeer Run sponsorship form on red paper, but you may also continue to use the orange Turkey Trot forms. We also have an online sponsorship option here: http://www.pucelementary.org/turkey-trot/
PUCE Family Vespers - December 14
The next PUCE Family Vespers will be December 14 at 6:30 PM in the previous 5th grade room. Pastor Jordan Fode will be our guest speaker. We would like to invite students to play Christmas carols while we sing along. If your child knows a Christmas carol on piano, strings, etc., and would like to participate, please let us know.
