Open House, Monday, March 16, at 7 PM to 8:30 PM. If you are looking for a great school for your children, come see PNCS! 

Do you have a favorite memory of Miss Wilma, our secretary, from your time at the Pittsburgh New Church School? We are (secretly) collecting messages that celebrate her twenty-five years of work here.

Comment here or send us a message.

We are hosting a screening of the thought-provoking movie “The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia,” followed by an informal discussion. Come join us! Bring a friend if you like.

Synopsis:

The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia provides personal and uplifting accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts and iconic leaders, such as Sir Richard Branson and financier Charles Schwab. Directed by James Redford, the film not only clears up the misconceptions about the condition, but also paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it.

Shining a spotlight on the latest scientific and psychological research, the film also highlights the work of Drs. Sally and Bennett Shaywitz, co-founders and co-directors of the Yale Center of Dyslexia and Creativity to illuminate the hidden origins and implications of dyslexia. Proving that dyslexia is a neurological issue and not a character flaw, The Big Picture beautifully illustrates that while the condition is an obstacle, it also carries some unique advantages, and ultimately can be overcome.

Happy Easter!

But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay..." -Matthew 28:5-6

Reading lets us learn for ourselves from Lord's Word. Each spring, we honor the importance of reading the Word in a special worship service. First graders read from the Word, and we present them with their very own copy.

Here are some of the beautiful words that a student read this morning:

“And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good.” – Genesis 1:31

Have you seen the beautiful stained glass pieces made by our middle school students? Art teacher Julie Uber wrote, “Some of the students designed their own patterns, or altered a given pattern to suit their artistic senses. All their work is beautiful. I'm very proud of them.” Here's a look at the process.

We love connecting math and real life, so we were thrilled to support one of our students in doing her own statistics research for this competition (http://www.amstat.org/education/posterprojects/). Her question was, “What are the most common letters in the English language?” After she and her friends counted which letters were used in twenty sentences from the newspaper, she displayed her findings on a beautiful poster. Which letter do you think is the most common?

A Simple Play from Winnie-the-Pooh
Friday, March 7, 11am

Students in Grades 1-3 loved hearing A. A. Milne's stories read aloud. Now they are going to act out one of the stories for the kindergarten class to enjoy. Parents and friends are welcome to stop in, too, and watch as Kanga and Roo arrive in the forest and Piglet has a bath.

One snowy day, PNCS hit the nearby slopes of Cowboy Hill for some sledding. It sounds like a good time was had by all. One of the fun things is that younger siblings got to come along, too.
