Principal's Corner

Collecting Tributes:  No, it is not exacting a tax from anyone, but rather a bringing together of fond memories and statements of affirmation. We are beginning the process of amassing the best experiences students and/or parents have had with Dwight Crow or Linda Hansel.  As these two master teachers transition into retirement, we want to shower them with all the testimonials we can find from the hundreds of lives they have impacted over the decades of service they have each given at PUCE.  Help spread the call for tributes to any and all alumni of PUCE that you may know.  Send in a written statement or post on the PUCE Facebook page. We will compile these for a celebratory event in May.
