Senior Parent Gift

The Senior Parent Gift supports professional development for faculty and staff. Because of the generosity of our parents, teachers continue to learn and to improve their professional practice — and then incorporate new ideas and methods into the PC curriculum.


In the fourth time capsule video in the series, seniors share their favorite PC traditions.
