We knew we had dedicated PCS family members near and far....but wow! Thank you to all who took the time to give us 1,000+ votes on NY Chips' recent school pride contest. Thanks to your support, Chad Heeb from NY Chips dropped off 300 individual bags this morning! Our first graders were the nominated grade level, so each student will be going home with a bag. Beyond that, elementary classes were randomly selected to receive the free bags. Classes will be finding out soon! Thank you to Chad Heeb and NY Chips....and all of you for the votes! #PrideInTheHive

They remember the shenanigans our little green-clad friend was up to in previous years and they're determined to finally trap him! #PrideInTheHive
