Weekly Bulletin

Good evening PCD families,

I hope that everyone is enjoying this scorcher of a Sunday! It is hard to believe that this is the final "Sunday email" of this historic 2020-21 school year. A big thank you to the Parents Association, led by Lori Kooloian and Katie Wetherby, for the delicious end-of-year treats provided for our community this week.

While our Upper Schoolers were busy wrapping up their classes for the year, our MIddlers were focused on their end of year experiential project, "Explorations," which did a variety of research on Upcycling. Our week ended with a fantastic awards assembly honoring those students who went above and beyond excellence inside and outside the classroom. Yesterday, our alumni baseball and lacrosse players descended upon the campus for an annual showdown with our respective Varsity teams and fun was had by all. Even this old timer had a great time running around on the lacrosse field!

As we enter graduation week I am so grateful to the many people who made this most challenging year possible. The teamwork, camaraderie, and collaboration I witnessed between the students, parents, and faculty/staff was nothing short of amazing. While I hope to never have to worry about masks or social distancing ever again, I know that as a community we can handle any challenge that comes our way.

Let's be sure to give our 8th graders and seniors a fantastic send off this week. Go Knights!
