We are so proud of those in our PCS community who are serving on the front lines during this worldwide pandemic.
To those of our families who work in healthcare – thank you for your service!
You bring healing and hope to many who are suffering.
To those in our community who interact daily with the public doing essential jobs – thank you for your service!
You are a light in a dim and weary world.
To those of you who support and care for others emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually, financially – thank you for your service.You are a solid rock allowing us all to stand firm in these shaky times.
To the many, many individuals who are simply yet heroically serving – thank you.
You are the “good and faithful” who show us all the way.
We are all called to be salt and light, to love and to serve, to give of ourselves in the name of Christ. As givers, as receivers, as those who love, as those who need love – we at PCS honor your service and pray for you daily.
Here at PCS, we see Christ’s love expressed every day in acts of service small and great. Teachers daily give of themselves to help students via distance learning -- many while also teaching their own children at home. Administrators make tough decisions, answer difficult questions, and solve problems they never imagined they would face. Behind the scenes, our facilities team works hard to keep our almost empty campuses secure and functional for the day when students and staff return. Staff, working from their homes, support the school in quiet and often invisible ways. We’re grateful for the opportunity to make small contributions – such as donating the school’s supply of gloves and masks to a hospital in need. And we’re pleased to be even a small part of the bigger things – such as standing with our ECE Director (and PCS alum) Christy Seifert, who is temporarily serving with a humanitarian relief organization in Manhattan, fighting in the COVID-19 response, while our preschool program is suspended. PC families are putting teddy bears, hearts, and other signs of support in their windows to encourage neighbors who are passing by. Others are volunteering at food banks and providing meals to first responders.
We’ve heard a lot of stories and know there are many other examples of service, care, and everyday heroism that are taking place within our PCS community. We would love to hear your story! Please share your stories and/or photos of how your family has cared for others during COVID, or your expression of thanks for those who are serving, here. We will select from those we receive to post on the PCS Facebook and Instagram accounts.
We’re all in this together and together we will come out the other side. Go Royals!
