Welcome to the Parent Volunteer Association (PVA)
As a parent or guardian at PCS you are a member of the Parent Volunteer Association (PVA). The PVA works to support our students and the school through parent volunteerism. Volunteer opportunities are shared on the PVA website and through frequent notices in the electronic newsletter "Today's News". The PVA also builds community at our school through volunteerism, community events, and parent education. Additionally, we support extra-curricular teams and clubs with unexpected costs, emergency needs, and start-up funds. Finally, we facilitate communication among parents, the Board, and the staff and faculty through our bi-monthly meetings and through electronic communication. We welcome all families to PCS and look forward to working with you!

Lunch is Available at PCS Daily


The PVA works with a variety of local restaurants to bring food in every day for students. Vegetarian options are available. Lunch can be purchased with cash for $6 or using a pre-purchased lunch card (sold at a slightly discounted rate). 

LUNCH cards are available for purchase online. Lunch cards can be purchased for 10 lunches @ $55 or 5 lunches @$27.50. Lunches can also be purchased with cash for $6. Credit card payments are preferred and available through our website! PCS staff needs a 24 hour turnaround to get the cards ready. Cards may be picked up in study hall before school and at break. Lunch cards are punch cards and carry over to the next school year if lunches are remaining on the card.

Additionally, students can purchase snacks and drinks for $1 each. They are not included as part of the lunch price. More information about lunch options will be available soon.
