5th grade parents to join us. Come meet your new Parent Association team!


Thanks are Definitely in Order!

You are cordially invited to join us for a PCPA Volunteer Celebration at Bird Dog Roadhouse on June 20th from 6-8 PM. If you've helped in way for the PCPA this year - please give us the opportunity to say thank you in person! And new faces are always welcome! This event is open to everyone - so if you haven't had a chance to volunteer just yet - this is a great way to meet other PCPA volunteers before this school year is done! There will be appetizers provided, and a cash bar.


Fundraising Updates

May update: $277.50 was given to our outdoor educational programs! 18 Cape families took part - thank you!! This program continues through the summer and it is never to late to join! Simply send in a check with your filled out form to the MS or Pond Cove front office and you will receive a Hannaford grocery card for the full amount of your check. You decide which grade's outdoor fund your 5% gets allocated - for example - do you have a kindergartner this year? Choose Class of 2031 for your 5% allocation - the money STAYS with the class for future outdoor programming!
