Under the instruction of Mrs. Ichiko Harju, a group of three PCA students are learning the ancient art of origami in the Kaleidoscope afterschool program. In one of the recent origami sessions, students spent hours carefully folding colored paper to construct crowns.
During the February 22 chapel service, Mrs. Trueira’s and Ms. Reny’s first-grade classes presented the play “Good Good Father” based on the children’s book by Chris Tomlin and Pat Barrett.

So encourage each other & build each other up, just as you are already doing.
I Thessalonians 5:11 NLT
