Dear King Families,

Although the school building is closed for the year, we are still here for you!
Our teachers and support staff continue to be available through email. Websites are updated weekly to provide optional learning resources for our students. Support staff is ready to assist with finding needed resources. Please reach out if you need anything!

We do not expect you to re-create school at home. Children learn in lots of ways so take time to explore, create, sing and dance. Reading for 20 minutes a day is powerful and a great way to 'disappear' into a good book. All work is optional and will not be collected or graded; however, teachers are available to answer questions or offer support. We greatly hope you will take advantage of the resources teachers are posting to avoid any loss of learning. All activities posted are review and concepts that have already been taught in the classroom.

Please check teachers' webpages weekly for any updates.
Feel free to email pictures to share on our school Facebook Page.
This is a true partnership between home and school.

PWCS has posted resources for learning at home at PWCS Home Learning Resources.
