Pacific Crest Weekly Email
December 7, 2017

Dear Families,

There are spaces left in Primary Winter Break childcare. If you’d like childcare any time Monday through Thursday, December 18th through 21st, stop by the front desk for an enrollment form. The childcare day runs from 8am to 4pm. You may sign up for 1 - 4 days.

We have a few lost and found items at the front desk that look to be of some value, sentimental or otherwise! If you are missing some tools or jewelry, come see us.


Middle School Intro Night for Current Parents
Thursday, December 7th, 7pm
5th grade students and parents of any older PCS Elementary student, please join us tonight as Middle School teachers discuss how our Montessori Middle School program meets the specific learning and developmental needs of the adolescent mind. This presentation is designed especially for Montessori Elementary parents and Montessori 5th grade students, though all of our Montessori parents are welcome.

Upcoming Events


2017 Annual Fund Campaign
Monday, November 6th through Thursday, December 14th
42% of our families have participated, but 100% participation is our goal, no matter the donation amount! This is our last week, so please help us reach 100% before next Thursday! And a big thank you to all who have donated so far. We’ve raised $69,807!  

At this point, 47.8% of Elementary, 40% of Middle School, and 38% of Primary have made their donations.  It’s so important for every family to contribute to this important fund at a level that is meaningful to them.   

Pledge cards and donations can be turned in to the front desk and credit card payments can be made online here. Remember, we accept installments, too. Thank you for your support!
