From the parent of a recent graduate:
“Even after being at PCS for 9 years and experiencing many graduations, I am still in complete awe over the way our school honors these kids. I know they can’t fully appreciate it now, but I am so humbled by and grateful for the intentionality, the love, the prayer, and the time and effort that goes into everything PCS does to prepare them for the next phase in their journeys. They are treated as individuals and allowed space to be who God created them to be. At the same time, they are held to a very high standard and pushed to fulfill their potential. They are given responsibility and held accountable. They are loved and supported and encouraged. I just can’t imagine a better place to spend those key years of development, and I feel so blessed (again and again) that God led us to this school!”
“My grandson, and I were returning home from a fishing trip recently when I was flipping through some radio channels and landed on a classical music station. He perked up immediately in the back seat and blurted out, “That’s Mozart! We studied him in the first grade. I’ve heard that before. It’s called ‘The Magic Flute!” I was startled. Here is a seven year old “Huck Finn” commenting on the radio’s classical music, naming the composer and his music. I wouldn’t have known it was Mozart except that “Mozart” was on my radio screen when I looked. When I asked him if he liked the music, he startled me again when he replied “Yes, I really like it.” How many seven year olds would recognize Mozart on the radio and comment on his music, even to the degree of liking it?
All this is to say that you should have a great feeling of accomplishment to know that you have implanted in a seven year old “Huck Finn” some respectable culture of music that most middle- and high-schoolers, and even college students, are lacking today, along with most adults. It is most gratifying as a grandfather to see your handiwork coming out.
Keep up the good work. It is greatly appreciated!”
