Hello PCS friends and family!
I am so excited to begin the 2023-2024 school year together. Our goal at Phillip C. Showell is to assist each of our students on their journey to reaching their dreams. We promise to provide a safe, caring and fun learning environment for all of our students.
There are so many things to be excited about at PCS this year! Starting in October, our entire school will again be participating in One School, One Book. Everyone in our school- students, custodians, and office staff will be reading the same book twice a week during our Morning Meetings. The goal is to foster a love of reading for all of our PCS family! The kick off for our first book will be October 17th during our Title I Family Night. We are super excited and hope that everyone can attend! This year, our fourth and fifth grade students will again have the opportunity to participate in the VEX Robotics program that is being offered through the Indian River School District. Students will work as a team to create a robot that will perform basic functions. The team will then use their robot when competing against other district elementary teams. We are looking forward to this exciting after school program being coached by . We are also excited to bring Girls on the Run back to Phillip Showell. This after school program, coached by Mrs. Ford, is for girls in 3rd- 5th grade.
The success of our students could not truly be met without the support and encouragement of all of their parents and guardians. We encourage you to read with your child for 15 minutes per night, talk about the school day during meal times, and spend time going over homework. We also would love to have family members be involved with the school. There are many ways to become involved such as helping in your child’s classroom, becoming a mentor, or attending PTO meetings. Please contact the school if you are interested in helping!
Our goal is to stay connected with our families and PCS community. In order to increase this communication, our school has a Facebook page- PCS Elementary School. We will be posting updates and photos throughout the year. We are also on twitter- @PCShowellES. Be sure to follow us! Finally, our PTO also has a Facebook page- Phillip C. Showell PTO. Each of these social media resources will help to keep you connected with all that is going on at PCS. As always, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please reach out to us at school. I am truly looking forward to meeting each and every child this year, as well as getting to know your families! Let’s make the 2023- 2024 school year amazing!
