Holiday or free dress today, right?
Are there any PCS families that live in Tomball who might be interested in a carpool trade off on school pickups with me?

I have one child in grammar school right now.

You can call/text me if you wanna chat about it!

While subbing for 7th grade Bible classes this morning, I was so thrilled to hear many of the students recite the 23rd Psalm from memory— something they learned in kindergarten. Impressive! I love that these students have those words in their hearts.
I have 3 collapsible music stands that I would give to any students or teachers who could use them. They are Proline GMS20 Music Stands. Two are black and one is silver. The silver has no label on it, but it appears to be the same style/brand. (retail on Amazon is @$25 each) Message me if interested...Lee
The return to campus document says there is an All School Curriculum meeting on Friday in MS Teams, will we get updated log in information before then? Our account currently has no ‘teams’ available.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE PCS TEACHERS.
YOUR AMAZING, COMPASSIONATE, & VALUABLE WORK IS SO IMPORTANT & DEEPLY APPRECIATED! HUGS.🙏
Is tomorrow Astros day???
ISO 3 Follies tickets for either tonight or tomorrow. Also, I have 3 tickets for the matinee today available if anyone needs them.
Our family wants to thank the Providence Classical Community for the great education and support as our daughter left in 2014 to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. She graduated last week and many of her teachers, as well as her Guidance Counselor, reached out to congratulate her and it warmed our hearts. We've moved away, but sure still feel a part of the community.
Clara is growing up so fast! She already looks like a Middle School student. Thanks for the pictures.
Book lovers: if you're looking for great books to add to your classrooms, there is a great used book sale near The Redd School/Champion Forest Baptist. Most books are $1. They have books on great artists, WW2, Civil War, dinosaurs, astronomy, classics, Bibles,coffee table books, wonderful kids' books like Curious George, Pooh. I've been going to their periodic sales for years and find wonderful books. They're open today and tomorrow -- with more stuff added for tomorrow. (The sellers have an online book business.)

We are a private classical school, PreK4-12th grade, located in Spring, Texas, that exists to assist parents in training their children to impact their culture for Christ.

The Role of Faith in the Pursuit of Truth

In the fourth installment of his video series on truth, Ethics and Apologetics Teacher Brad Finkbeiner explains how true Christian faith is not based on feelings or mysticism, but is instead founded on real evidence of who Jesus is and what He has done. We may be certain that He is the Messiah, and we can be confident in our salvation, walking in full assurance and understanding of the gospel. | 1 Corinthians 15:1-7

This week for #PCSMeetUsMonday, we're pleased to feature Dean of Student Life Juan Alcala. Mr. Alcala earned bachelor's degrees in English and journalism from the University of Florida as well as a master's degree in language and literature research from the University of Valencia in Spain. He joined the PCS faculty last year teaching Composition & Literature, Humanities, and Yearbook, then moved into his current role as Dean of Student Life and Spanish III Teacher this year. Juan and his wife, Kelly, have two sons, Teo (age 4) and Joaquin (8 months).

1. What is your favorite way to spend your free time?

I enjoy writing, both fiction and non-fiction. Especially recently, having been inspired by Dostoevsky’s masterly use of dialogue, I’ve enjoyed stretching my ability to write dialogue by imagining a variety of scenes involving characters I’ve long been developing.

2. What’s your favorite place you’ve ever visited and why?

I especially remember a Friday Evensong at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. Evening prayer often allows for the calm and quiet reverence so often lacking in morning worship. During this particular service, the Scripture reader, not easily visible to the congregants, read with an amplified voice that caused the Word of God to echo throughout the cathedral with a sense of timelessness and deep holiness, as though we congregants were being let into the authoritative secrets of the cosmos. Of course, this is what is happening anytime we read or hear Scripture, though we don’t always experience the Word of God this way. This service also convinced me that chant should be a regular part of Christian worship.

3. What word of advice would you offer to PCS students and families this year?

My advice to PCS students and families, because it is my advice to myself as often as I have the mind to give it, is to pursue holiness -- to keep holiness as the constant fixture of their gaze. Holiness of mind, of attention, of tongue, of action. I sometimes fear that even the Church is losing its grip on the category of the Holy. We don’t seem as gripped by the necessity and loveliness of holiness as we ought to be. There is no aspect of life or of ourselves so insignificant that holiness shouldn’t define it.

Today for Grandparents and Special Friends Day, our Upper School students greeted our guests, toured them around campus, and helped serve breakfast. Then during the Grammar School program, many of our Logic and Rhetoric students "decked the halls" (decked the decks?) and enjoyed House Games. We're grateful for the servant hearts of our wonderful students! Have a great Thanksgiving break! 🍁🦃

Happy Meet Us Monday! This week, we proudly feature third grade teacher, Katherine McCarty. Mrs. McCarty earned her degree in interdisciplinary studies from Western Governors University. She has worked with children in various roles since high school -- as a nursery worker, nursery director, preschool teacher, teaching VBS and children’s small groups, in homeschool co-ops, homeschooling her own children, and at a public charter classical school in Katy. This is her first year at PCS teaching 3rd grade. Katherine has been married for 24 years to her best friend, Chad. Together, they have three children -- Mercy (2021 graduate from Sam Houston State), Seth (freshman at Texas A&M), and Chloe (8th grader at PCS), as well as a new puppy named Harley!

1. What do you like most about teaching at PCS?

I love teaching. I was even in Future Teachers of America in High School, and I honestly don’t know why except that the Lord just put teaching on my heart from the start!

2. What characteristic has God been developing in you recently?

The Lord has been working on me to be more intentional with my time and with every choice that I make each day and to focus on HIM and what HE wants me to do/say, step by step.

3. What is your favorite way to spend your free time?

I enjoy reading, camping, kayaking, hiking, baking, crafting, spending time with my family, and playing games. We also love visiting with our extended family. Some of them are only an hour away so we get together as much as we can.

Veterans Day Ceremony

The PCS community gathers for our annual Veterans Day Ceremony to remember the American heroes who have gone before and to honor those who are still with us. Our keynote speaker, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, shares lessons from his experiences as a Navy SEAL and calls us to develop personal responsibility and fortitude in support of our nations freedom and to the glory of God.

Christ-Centered Academic Excellence

Providence Classical School is a distinctly Christian and Classical school established in 1999 in northwest Houston. Christian means we teach from a Biblical worldview and our curriculum is firmly rooted in God’s Word. We acknowledge God as the source and author of all truth and view all subjects through this lens. Classical means that we use the time-tested model of the trivium to employ the children’s God-given strengths across 3 stages of growth to help them learn. Young children in the Grammar phase enjoy memorizing, singing, and rhymes, so a solid foundation is laid in each subject of study at this age. Middle School students are curious and inquisitive, so we develop their ability to reason and discern truth in the Logic phase. And high-school students want to express themselves, so we teach them how to present their ideas in an articulate and winsome manner in the Rhetoric phase. The result is a PCS graduate who is a life-long learner and displays excellence in all they do. They know what they believe and why and can positively impact their culture for Christ.
