• Although PWCS is unable to provide instruction or class assignments to students while schools remain closed, our School Division hopes that the suggestions for optional learning activities posted here will help parents support student learning until schools re-open. Please remember that the use of these materials and participation in these activities are optional and neither grades nor course credit will be awarded.

    Hello Raiders -
    As week 3 approaches, I hope you are all keeping busy and safe from the virus.  I am a bit stir crazy, but try to take advantage of the nice weather and take Gaia for a walk.  

    While we are going through this epic time in our life, this is a great time to journal about what is happening and how your family is handling it or the impact it has had on your family.  This will be a time in history to look back on and remember.  Journaling is also a great way to continue your reading and writing skills.

    Here are some other prompt ideas:  


  1. Write about someone you care about and why they are so important to you.
  2. Playing a team sport can have both good and bad points. Explain both the good points and the bad points about playing on a school sports team, explaining every point.
  3. Think about someone you look up to. Write about this person and why you admire this person.

Also, remember the school library site has some great resources.  Remember through the  School Library webpages you can access the Research Resources webpage that provides links to the PWCS provided databases. 

Also through the library you can access At Home Activities . It has many links that the Ms. Ingalls and Mrs. Gish have found for you to use. 

Keep safe and let me know how you are doing!

Ms. Koory


I'm so sad to hear that we will not be returning to school. I hope you are still reading and keeping busy. I will be adding some resources to this page to continue to read and practice some reading skills. 

Hang in there and feel free to email me!
