Dear PWCS Families, Employees, and Community,

After we all take advantage of the much-needed pause provided by Spring Break next week, I encourage our families to explore the many learning opportunities that PWCS will provide to students this summer. Our School Division is offering both an academic program and an enrichment program for students in grades kindergarten through 12. The ongoing learning of our students throughout the summer is critical, and supports Learning and Achievement for All as outlined in our Vision 2025 Launching Thriving Futures Strategic Plan.

At the elementary school level, students may take advantage of a three-week academic program in July that provides opportunities to improve necessary skills in language arts and mathematics through interactive and engaging activities. Social skills are also addressed. Enrichment programs and camps are offered for a variety of subjects, including science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), language arts, fitness, music, and art.

Middle school students can also take advantage of a three-week academic program, as well as the Middle School Student Success Academy, and enrichment programs focusing on art, music, and STEM, among several others.

PWCS will offer many summer opportunities to high school students, including a six-week programgraduation academySOL two-week remediation, and a career and technical education boot campEnrichment camps will be offered to students ready to begin their college admissions process, among other subjects. Please review our summer school website for details regarding each program, including registration deadlines.

As I mentioned last week, April includes several observances, and PWCS highlights these observances in a variety of ways. This week, I would like to recognize Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month. I appreciate the strides being made in the Division to provide support to our students with autism to ensure they thrive in our schools and in our community. I urge our staff, parents, and community members to take responsibility for promoting autism awareness and acceptance for the thousands of extraordinary individuals facing an autism diagnosis every year.

This week is also National Assistant Principals Week. I would like to recognize our extraordinary assistant principals who have become a source of steadfast leadership and inspiration for us all, especially as we navigated the global pandemic. I sincerely appreciate your hard work and service to our students and our families.

Have a safe and enjoyable Spring Break.
