We hope as you are settling into the new school year, you are looking forward to the wonderful activities and field trips we have planned this year! As a cyber school, many think that the importance of socialization just goes out the window, but here at PALCS, we make it a priority! We encourage all students and PALCS families to take advantage of as many as they can!
Hey PALCS families, it’s time to Picnic! Yes that’s right, come one, come all to the back-to-school picnic this fall! On October 6th, bring the whole family and come meet teachers, PALCS staff and fellow PALCS families.
As we settle into a new school year, it is important that we make sure that all of our students are in the correct classes and levels! So with that being said, we want wish our students and teachers well at the start of MAP testing! Elementary school MAP testing began yesterday, while middle school and high school MAP testing begins next Monday, September 18th.
New Students, returning students, and your families too / We want to wish Happy First Day of School to you!
We are now in the single digit countdown to the first day of school here at PALCS and we are so excited to welcome new and returning students to the 2017-2018 school year! If you are nervous about the first day of school or will miss the lazy days of summer, we have 5 ways to help make this school year the most successful yet!
At the beginning of August, a group of adventure-seeking PALCS students and high school science teacher Mrs. Emily Intelicato made their way to the Galapagos Islands for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The 10 day trip allowed students to walk in Darwin’s footsteps to explore the historic islands and sites.
As a cyber school, PALCS understands that there are many questions families have when thinking about enrolling their children and if it’s the right fit for them. This is totally normal; switching schools is a big step and it can be intimidating. This is why we offer a compatibility quiz tool on our website. You are able to choose your role; both parents and students can answer a group of questions to see if cyber school could be a good fit for your family.
There are only 25 days left until the first day of school! Are you ready? We are counting down the days until all of our returning and new students join us for a school year that will be full of valuable learning and endless opportunities!
As a cyber school, many are surprised to learn that we hold several educational trips every year. We hold multiple field trips (day trips) every month, though this post is referring to extended stay trips that can take you around the world or even just a few hours away.
This summer, during the last two weeks in June, PALCS held the 2017 STEM Camp at the Advanced Ideas Center (AIC) in West Chester, PA. There were two sessions of the program that each ran for one week from 8 am - 12 pm each day. Students in grades 6-8 were invited to participate in the camp, which took place from June 19th to June 30th.
