Welcome

  • Season’s greetings from the beach!

    As we end another year (2018), and break for winter (December 22, 2018 to January 7, 2019), I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to you.  You bring sunshine to the greater community with your many gifts and talents. 

    In the spirit of this holiday season, I want to extend my thanks to all of you for everything that you do for our school.  As you enjoy the break, it is my hope that each of you ‘pays it forward’, through kindness, talent, treasure, and good tidings to others.  That’s what makes the next two weeks so special.

    It is during these times (in the quiet) that I am especially reminded of my own good fortune to serve as your proud principal.  I truly am the luckiest person in the world.  My career as a school teacher and leader has afforded me vast, varied, and richly rewarding opportunities to teach and to learn from young people.  And of course, you all.  I do hope you too feel the same way about what you do.  The faces and actions of our children, their enthusiasm, hope and joy for life is a reflection of you.  The world awaits them!

    And to you, our school families, and students, please have a safe and joyous holiday season.  As school tradition has it, our Mad Beach Santas will be in the car line Friday morning to greet you.  And as a show of thanks to you, choral students will bring in the sounds of the season.  In addition, food service staff will be handing out candy canes that morning to you.  If you have a Santa costume, and you’d like to join me...please email me at ateekc@pcsb.org.  Park and walk up for a cup.  See you then, or bright and early Tuesday, January 8, 2019.

    Respectfully,

    Chris Ateek, Principal

    2018-2019 8th grade National Junior Honor Society Interest

    NJHS is a service organization for students who exemplify and demonstrate the following traits: service, leadership, character, and citizenship. Eligible eighth grade students will be evaluated by a faculty advisory council on the basis of these traits.  To be eligible for membership consideration, students must be in eighth grade and have a 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale beginning with grades active in sixth grade and meet the behavioral and character requirements. If, after a student has been selected, but before the formal induction, the student is involved in an incident which places his/her qualifications in question, induction will not take place until the faculty advisory council re-evaluates his/her standing.
    Students must also be able to verify at least 20 hours of community service with documentation.  Acceptable forms of documentation include a letter or the form available on the website with signed documentation of the service done and number of hours.  Service hours may be completed at the same place and should be signed off by a non-family member.  The hours may begin at the beginning of his/her seventh grade year and need to be completed by the first day of 8th grade.
