Counselling Update for January 21st
Counseling Tip:  Strategies to Navigate Sibling Competition As parents we try hard not to compare our kids—at least not openly. However, when our children start school, they look around and begin comparing themselves against all the other children in the class/school. As much as this may bother us as parents, it is normal, healthy, and important developmentally and psychologically for them to place themselves on a skill spectrum. Knowing where their strengths are as well as areas that need some extra attention allows them to actually celebrate their own victories.  The hard part is to keep them from crossing over ... read full article

Counselling Update for January 7th
The developmental asset for January is COMMITMENT TO LEARNING (ENTHUSIASTIC LEARNER) The characteristics for this asset are: Student is motivated to do well in school Student is engaged in school/class activities Student cares about his/her school Student reads for pleasure—curious about information on subjects that are not assigned as homework Suggested activities to develop this asset: Discuss current music, movies, or television programs and the messages they are sending. How are these messages consistent or inconsistent with this asset? Discuss characters/people in literature, history or current events and talk about how these characters or people used this asset—if they did ... read full article

Counselling Update for December 8th
The past two weeks the counseling lessons focused on self-esteem with grades 3-6. We talked about a person’s self-worth and how that worth is unchanged regardless of how the person may feel or what the person may experience. We reviewed what makes up a healthy self-esteem and why it is important to know your own strengths. This is another component to the anti-bullying program. To help “bully- proof” a person, one needs to feel good about oneself and know one’s own attributes. People are less likely to succumb to verbal attacks if they are secure and feel good about themselves. ... read full article

Counselling Update for December 3rd
The Development Asset for the month of December is: Constructive Use of Time (Leadership). It is important that students learn to manage their time. Learning to be a leader begins early with small steps. Students who are in scouts for example, could be in charge of a specific activity or event. Students on sports teams might be the captain or co-captain. Beginning with small activities and experiencing success will build confidence so as the students get older, they will be able to take on more leadership roles and will have developed the skills to perform well. Family Activity: Story Telling: ... read full article

Welcome back and Happy New Year 2016 to all!  I hope everyone had a safe, restful, and fun-filled winter holiday.     What’s New at PCR?

David and a team of 11 Boy Scout volunteers from Troop 502, spent the weekend of December 19th building this great addition to our campus.  The shed will store games that can be used ... read full article

Message from Principal Hurley
Robotics is building STE(A)M at PCR! Over the past few years, PCR has been actively building steam in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). With the support of our PTA, Dads Committee, and parent volunteers, PCR has been able to offer several after-school enrichment programs, including Robotics, Computer Programming, Math Olympiad, and 3D Printing.   Up until now, our robotics programs have been offered exclusively after school to a limited number of students. I am thrilled to let you know that, starting in January, PCR will pilot a robotics program during classroom computer time beginning with second ... read full article

Message from Principal Hurley
Dear PCR Parents, Beginning this Friday and over the next few months, PCR students and staff will practice lockdown drills.  All PCR staff and teachers have read an article from the Huffington Post entitled “Talking to Kids About a Lockdown”.  We recommend that you read  this article as well. Teachers and campus supervisors have been trained on lockdown procedures and will be working with our students as we practice school-wide. We will talk with students about: 1) what to do should there be a “lockdown” during lunch or recess and pointing out the locations of unlocked, easily accessible “safe rooms” ... read full article
