Palmetto Players Enjoy Rave Reviews from Delighted Audience

main image

Four shows in just three days, and the audience was left wanting even more! The Palmetto Players made a dramatic return with this year's spectacular performances of "You Can't Take It With You". Audiences packed the house to enjoy the comical story of the kooky but lovable Sycamore family who welcomed a never ending cast of interesting characters into their home. A Russian dancer, an eccentric grandpa and oddball xylophone players were just a few of the people we met along the way.

The Palmetto Players have been working and rehearsing for months, and the hard work certainly was evident. Director Vicki Blackstone says, "A heartfelt thank you to all cast members, support staff, and parents who helped The Palmetto Players return to the stage with Kaufman and Hart's You Can't Take It With You. We could not have given our school family the gift of this show without your help and generous support."

Touring Our Nation's Capital: 8th Graders Travel to Washington DC

main image

What an incredible learning experience! PCA 8th graders discovered our nation's past, present, and future with a trip to our nation's capital.

With Faculty Member Bill Schenkel and his vast arsenal of knowledge at the helm, students enjoyed many educational adventures including visits to the Pentagon Memorial, the Museum of the Bible, Mount Vernon, and Arlington National Cemetery where students witnessed the changing of the guard.

Mr. Schenkel explains the value of this week-long trip, "History comes alive as students experience the greatness of our leaders from past to present. The students had their appetites whetted so that one day they will want to go back and further experience all there is to do in Washington!"

Each day was packed with opportunities to learn more about our nation's
history, politics and government as students explored Washington D.C. and experienced firsthand what they have been learning in the classroom. Many thanks to our wonderful chaperones for making this possible and to Robin Fishburne for the fantastic photos!
