The number one concern most families have when making the switch from a brick-and-mortar school to a cyber-school is socialization. When will my children get the socialization skills they need? Are there any socialization opportunities? Will my child meet new friends? These are all questions we hear fairly often.
Yesterday, October 24th, 2018 was Unity Day, so PALCS teachers and staff gathered in their orange shirts, pants, and shoes, to celebrate and stand against bullying. We are united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion of all students!
Bullying is incredibly common: at least one in four students in the United States have indicated they have been bulled at school, and many more students have witnessed or participated in a bullying incident. Many parents may anecdotally remember bullying in the school building and the internet as a refuge from this on-site bullying. However, being surrounded by technology, social media, and digital platforms, cyberbullying has become an issue. Depending on ages and orientations of students, anywhere between a tenth and one half of U.S. students have experienced cyberbullying.
October is National Bullying Prevention Month. We want to join together as a community to prevent bullying and make positive changes. Here at PALCS, we create a safe environment both virtually and on-site, where we have zero tolerance for bullying.
As the month of October comes to an end, we here at PALCS want to thank every single person who was involved in our anti-bullying and bulling prevention activities throughout the month. With October being National Bullying Prevention Month, our Guidance Department sponsored various activities to promote and bring awareness to bullying and prevention.
Happy Unity Day! Today at PALCS, you may notice vibrant clusters of orange shirts throughout our offices and perhaps even our community. Today we join supporters online, in schools, and communities nationwide in wearing orange to show that we will stand up against bullying!

Our students here at PALCS amaze us every day, with their dedication, motivation and compassion. Danielle Guth, PALCS 12th grader, is a prime example. As Danielle’s senior year is winding down, there seems to be no slowdown in sight for this bright young woman who be attending Immaculata University next fall.
Every October the guidance department spearheads a PALCS campaign to gather support and participation in Unity Day, the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month. On Wednesday, October 21st, in addition to asking students and faculty to wear orange in support of students who have been bullied, the guidance counselors have implemented their own “Kindness Initiative”. They are asking each and every one of us to come together as a united PALCS community and share ways we can support each other through “words of kindness”.
