Tutoring and Project Support. Parents, please note tutoring has changed and we will provide two sessions daily for tutoring: after or before lunch depending on the grade level, and after 4th Bell. Students who miss school or are absent must visit their teachers during tutoring to get caught up on their assignments. Encourage your child to take advantage of this opportunity and student service. The tutoring sessions are also utilized to assist students with their quarterly and break projects.
NWEA Map Testing. Spring NWEA MAP testing is concluded. Students on the remote option who did not test, must coordinate with the admin office to come in to the school and complete testing. MAP testing results will form the baseline for the Extended Summer Learning Program. Parents, ask your child if they met their spring target goals. If you have any questions, you may contact your child's homeroom teacher by visiting their home page on the PCLC website.

Memorial Day. On May 31st every year the nation pays tribute to all those veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Originally started as Decoration Day, we now celebrate that sacrifice with a national holiday. Throughout the country people conduct different programs from parades to visiting veterans' cemeteries to place American flags at the headstones of veterans. How will you honor those who sacrificed for you on this day?
May is Asia-Pacific Heritage Month. In May we celebrate Asian Pacific heritage. It started as a weekly observance in 1979, and was expanded in May 1990 by President Bush with a proclamation. In Oct 1992, President Bush signed legislation designating May of every year Asian Pacific Heritage Month.

I received my Masters in Teaching in 2016 from Miami University after serving in the U.S. Army. My military experience allowed me to have a front row seat to global events giving me a unique perspective and greater awareness and understanding of how those events over the last 10-20 years are relevant to the lives of our students today. I have served and completed missions in Europe, the Far East, Middle East, Caribbean, and South America. Unfortunately, for most of my career the continent of Africa was not a national priority. I am originally from Metropolitan Detroit and a public high school graduate. I have two grown children, a son serving in the U.S Air Force, and a daughter who is a teacher.
My passion is teaching and studying history. History is important because it allows us to understand our past, which in turn informs us how to make sense out of our present. The past created the present. However, we can influence the present and control our future by learning the lessons of the past to build a brighter future. Studying history provides insight into our culture and our origins so we can learn who we are in order to create opportunities that will benefit us and our fellow man.

The importance of Learning Targets.Why are learning targets important? A well-written learning target ensures that the teachers can explicitly teach and model the important performance criteria necessary for learning, provide the appropriate practice opportunities, and assists in monitoring student progress and sharing purposeful and actionable feedback with students.
