main image

PCA Lower School has got some talent! James 1:17 says "Every good and perfect gift is from above..." God was definitely shining through each performer who showed courage and bravery to stand on stage and perform in front of a room full of peers. Each one of them should be extremely proud of themselves. Mom Whitney Hinson said, "I'm so overwhelmed with joy and so extremely proud of all the kids to be so brave."

From dance and cheer routines to musical instruments, from some fantastic preaching to a mime act, this year's talent show had a little bit of everything. Some highlights include Amelia Pasko showing exemplary violin skills while accompanied by her mother on piano, as well as many beautiful solos and duets and other musical performances. Alex Avinger amazed us by telling the story of Jesus through a YoYo routine - how awesome was that! The show ended with an amazing lyrical dance that brought cheers from the audience by Malia Hamilton. Bravo to all the performers!

Celebrating Soil: Conservation Superstars!

main image

From farmers to engineers to archaeologists, soil is as good as gold. Preserving healthy soil and water for the good of the community and future generations is the job of The Charleston Soil & Water Conservation District. To promote awareness, the District invites local public and private schools to participate in a yearly poster contest. This year's topic: life in the soil, dig deeper.

Mrs. Adkins', Ms. Jones', and Mrs. Andrews' third grade classes decided to accept the challenge. The stipulation was that each class had to work together, using various media, to create one poster illustrating living things found in the soil.

Of course, PCA third graders excelled! Mrs. Andrews' class won the award for most creative with its "Life Down Under" poster. They used multi media to spotlight the habitats of moles, chipmunks, snakes, and even a bumble bee's nest while also stating that God provides the perfect environment for his creatures to thrive in.

Mrs. Adkins' class won 1st place in the 3rd grade division of Charleston County as well as the Best Overall Conservation Poster Award. The poster was titled "Got Soil?" with the question mark being a worm to add interest. Hence...creative! Her students also used various media to create worms, springtails, mites and arthropods, and very specific bacteria and fungi that live in the soil. Together, they were able to illustrate that God makes all things work together to make the soil healthy.

Both Mrs. Adkins and Mrs. Andrews will attend the awards banquet on May 22 at the Fort Johnson Marine Center. Mrs. Debbie Eckard from the Charleston County Soil and Water Conservation District will come to PCA on Monday, May 20, to present certificates and awards to the students.

How magnificent is it that PCA students can share their Christian worldview with others by participating in a poster contest! The Lord's name be praised!
