Students who previously set up an account with Dean Bank can bring their money to the banking volunteers in the library or cafeteria on Tuesday mornings between 8:15-8:45. We will have the deposit slips available.

Your PCC Dollars at work
Len Cabral Storyteller - Cost $900
On September 17, our children were enchanted by Len Cabral, an internationally acclaimed storyteller. This program was offered in celebration for all the work the kids put into their summer reading.
The children love Mr. Cabral as he captivates their mind and imagination for 45 minutes with his stories from around the globe. Some classes immediately went back to the classroom and worked in Writer’s Workshop. Want to know more? Ask your child or visit www.lencabral.com
