Principal's Corner

Looking Ahead:  If you are the parent who is responsible for enrolling your students in school, you were sent an email invitation this week to start the re-enrollment process for the 2019-20 school year.  Now is the time to log into your Renweb Parentsweb account and reserve a place at PUCE for your children for this fall. We have added some features to smooth and automate your link with the school.  You will choose an automated payment plan for the coming year that should simplify the way you take care of your school bill. For those who need financial aid, the process for requesting aid is also now online as part of the re-enrollment.  We hope that the bugs have been worked out of the new system, but please give us feedback if you notice anything amiss.
