Presbyterian School has so much to be grateful for and parent volunteers are at the top of our list! Our Parent Volunteer Council performs an important role in furthering the School's core values and enriching each child's education. Parents have selflessly given hundreds of hours this 2015-2016 academic year. PS is an exceptional school because of you, and we are grateful for all that you do. Remember: Volunteers are not paid because they are worthless but because they are priceless.

Our panther athletes enjoyed a great Winter season participating in 13 teams over 4 sports including basketball, soccer, swimming and wrestling. All 6th-8th grade students who wanted to join a winter team sport received this opportunity with our "no-cut" policy. This led to the creation of 9 basketball teams alone! Panther pride was at an all time high this season as over 150 students committed to every day athletic practices for 10 weeks.

In the world of athletics, it is easy to forget to say thanks. We can get caught in the moment so easily that we forget to recognize others who are equally responsible for our successes. The running back who scores a touchdown could not do it without the linemen blocking for him. The player who scores a goal was only able to do so because of her teammate's pass. The coach who receives a trophy must realize that he/she never played a second in the game and owes all success to the players. The heart of a truly great athlete is filled with gratitude--not pride. In the aftermath of our victories let us remember to turn around and say thank you. Presbyterian School athletes seek a higher standard. Join us as we give thanks to those who made our victories possible this winter season.

Can you guess what our students were most thankful for this past month? The NEW PLAYGROUND of course! Enthusiasm for our new green turf was of epic proportions... imagine Disney World excitement. With the new configuration of the playground, there is a lot more room for students to run and play. The new playground has become THE destination spot after school. Students of all ages have converged on the playground to chase each other around as they shed their shoes and the cares of the day away. Whether it's playing a robust game of four square or taking a turn on the new oodle swing or zooming down the triple slide, there is a fun activity for everyone.
