2019 Fine Arts Coffee House Brings Down the House!

main image

The 2019 Fine Arts Coffeehouse was nothing short of magical as the High School Choir performed songs from Disney's most popular movies. The Choir entertained a full house with choral selections from The Jungle Book, Aladdin and Mulan. With popcorn in hand, the audience was entranced with solo performances from seasoned singers Aly Godwin-"A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes", Charlee Olson-"Colors of the Wind", AnnaJaye Walters-"I See the Light" and Olivia Horne-"How Far I'll Go". Other standout performances were by Grace Fauteux who choreographed and tapped to Tarzan's "You'll Be in My Heart", while Will Wheeler and friends performed Tarzan's "Trashin' the Camp" with a homemade drum set made out of trash cans. Freshman Kwyncee Crager had our audience snapping and clapping with her rendition of "Dig a Little Deeper" while newcomers, Dani Wulf-"Almost There" and Olivia Martin-"Part of Your World" had stellar performances that had everyone on their feet.

"This program was so much fun to prepare for and perform", said director, Kathy Thames. "Our students' song selections represented their voices so well and provided a nice variety for a great show this year. However, beyond the music, it was amazing to see how beautifully our group works together and how they support and encourage each other - that's success to me."

This spring, the Choir will travel to Disney World where they will prepare and record a song and dialogue from a Disney animated film soundtrack in a fast-paced recording studio environment.

Breaking Ground on the New Student Life Center

Nearly 700 people braved the rain and heat to celebrate an historic moment at PCA - the Student Life Center groundbreaking! Students, alumni, faculty and families joined with community leaders to put shovels in the ground for the new 44,000 square foot addition to the school campus.

The Student Life Center will provide a new tournament size gymnasium, 2 fully equipped science laboratories, 2 technology classrooms, as well as math classrooms, Bible classrooms and a collaborative student space. The new facility will support PCA's commitment to the critical study of technology and science while continuing its focus of providing students with a biblical worldview.

"This Student Life Center is going to be a place where students can spend time with each other, with their teachers, and with their youth group leaders. They will learn the important academics that they always learn, but in an environment that says this is how you apply that knowledge and how you go out and impact the culture," said PCA Headmaster JD Zubia.

The projected timeline for completion of the building would allow us to open the doors to the new Student Life Center for the 2020-2021 school year. A special thank you to Mt. Pleasant Mayor Pro Tem Gary Santos, Mount Pleasant Council Member Jim Owens, ECBC leaders and our ECBC and PCA families for celebrating with us!

We encourage you to prayerfully consider how you can help us fund the remaining $2 million needed to build this fully equipped facility which will transform the learning experience for each of our students.
