Dear Providence Country Day Parents,

Sunday greetings to all in PCD nation. Please see below for this week's information:

(1). Hats off to the cast and crew of The PCD Players, one and all, for this weekend's outstanding spring musical performance. Full houses on both nights were treated to entertaining shows, made all the more enjoyable by the amount of fun students were clearly having on stage. Much appreciation to all adults who supported our performers, and huge thanks to Lindsay Sosan, who coordinated this multi-grade, multi-age production with great skill and success.

(2). Thanks in advance to all parents and friends of the school who will participate in our Play for PCD event at the Aquidneck Club in Portsmouth tomorrow. Special thanks go to Doug Allen, Melissa Dick, and all staff who will support this full-day event to benefit our school.
