We are living in a world that is clamoring for each of us to be alike and accept each person’s individual preference to be different! Whoa, is that confusing! Loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength is loving Him with every fiber of our being and offering everything we do to the glory of God.
As a staff, we are bursting with excitement for the opportunity to educate your child through the lens of Scripture. We can hardly wait until August 19th arrives to again be a vital part of the journey towards the Kingdom. High school is a growing time for solidifying the way we think of the world around us. Thank you for allowing the staff at PCS to be an instrumental part of molding your child’s understanding of the world.
