Kayla Pullin's preschoolers have been studying how caterpillars turn into butterflies.  Each day they watched with great anticipation how the cocoons were changing.  One day the butterflies emerged ready for a new life, so it was time to let them go.  The class got to see the butterflies up close before they flew off to a new life.

PBC Students Rally for KPREP

PBC teachers wearing shirts emblazoned with "I mustache you to do your best on the test" and students sporting mustaches rallied to support the third-fifth graders who will be taking the KPREP testing May 7-13.  Students heard from Joe Tinius, superintendent, who challenged to students to do their best.  If they go above a certain level on the test, he will return in the fall and someone can shave off his mustache!  Big Red entertained the students and competed in a dance contest, which was won by Niyosenga.  The primary classes made banners supporting one of the intermediate classes.  As they left the gym, third-fifth graders walked through a hallway full of students cheering them on to do their best.  See all the pictures in the photo gallery.
