Accompanied by her family, colleagues, and students, Jr./Sr. High Principal Rebecca Belkota was recognized this morning as an ATHENA Leadership Award finalist at the inaugural celebration hosted by the Livingston County Area Chamber at SUNY Geneseo. The awards honor local women dedicated to community, professionalism, and leadership. The Chamber sought nominations last summer, seeking examples of professional leadership, community leadership, personal leadership or mentorship. Principal Belkota embodies all of that. We are grateful to have her at PCS and congratulate her on being named a finalist! Congratulations to all the finalists, especially Ms. Helen Serefine for being named the ATHENA Award winner in Livingston County. #PrideInTheHive
Sometimes, when you get the feeling, you just have to dance! That’s exactly what Coach Weber and Coach Ohlson’s grades 4-6 Physical Education students did yesterday. Special guests Ruben Ornelas (Dancer/Choreographer), Alaina Olivieri (Dance Instructor), and Ted Canning (Percussionist), from the GLOW Creative Group through Go Art, helped students learn more about different dance patterns like extension, flexion, rotation, etc. This was all done to the beat of Mr. Canning’s drumming. Students had the opportunity to freely express themselves through a variety of movement patterns. The trio will be joining classes again in the future. (Thanks to Coach Weber for the photos) #PrideInTheHive

We are family! That's exactly what Mrs. Borek wants her third graders to remember. This morning, she surprised her class with t-shirts displaying the message "We are family. I've got all my classmates and me." They regularly discuss the fact that as a class family they need to support one another. #PrideInTheHive #PCSDfamily

While discussing the role of good leaders, Mrs. Huttar introduced her 8th grade agriculture students to a team building activity. The challenge was, within the allotted five minutes, to build the tallest free-standing structure with the provided materials, including one piece of duct tape and eight pieces of construction paper (and no scissors). After a couple stressful attempts, the class then debriefed as to what worked for each group, what challenges they faced, and if a member took on a leadership role. #PrideInTheHive
