Love is truly the most powerful force known. Love is our highest good. It heals. It protects. It nurtures, uplifts, and transforms. Love is the sum of all goodness of the human heart. Then kindness is love in action. It is taking the love you have in your heart and giving it away to another. Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. When we show love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us to develop inner happiness and peace. Find a way today to spread kindness and show love for others.

In honor of Black History Month, we will be highlighting some innovations of African Americans that changed the way we produce and consume foods. On February 27, 2024, we will offer biscuits at breakfast and will offer French Fries at lunch. Interested in finding out why those foods, see the graphic below.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Smiling is one such random act of kindness. Smiling has been proven to increase endorphins – which help you and others feel much better. By giving someone a smile, it will encourage them to do the same. Smiling can be a chain reaction and often is contagious. Take a moment today to make someone smile.
Weather Update - Given the chance for inclement weather across the area impacting travel in the morning and out of an abundance of caution, all PCPS schools and offices will open on a two-hour delay on Tuesday, February 13, 2024. Students should plan to arrive at their bus stop two hours later than normal. We ask parents or guardians of students who drive to school to talk with them about being particularly careful in the morning. We want everyone to arrive safely and ready to learn. Breakfast and lunch will be served at school. We thank everyone for their continued patience and flexibility as we continue to make decisions that have everyone’s safety as our primary concern. Thank you!

What is kindness? Kindness matters and it matters every day. Today is day one of our Kindness Week initiative. Start by defining what you think kindness is…it might be a kind word to someone, it might be lending a hand to someone in need, saying thank you to the person who held the door for you, or just smiling at someone. Kindness can be many different things and it is easy to be kind. Ask someone today how they demonstrate kindness. Be Kind. No exceptions!
Important Bus Route Information: Notice to Parents in the Shenandoah Area-- Bus 11 will not run this afternoon. Please expect delays of up to 20 minutes on Bus 5 and Bus 11 students this afternoon.
Digital Awareness Tip #5
Throughout next week, February 12 - 16, 2024, along with the Virginia Department of Education and other school divisions across the state, Page County Public Schools will celebrate Kindness Week. Kindness Week is to recognize that simple day-to-day acts of kindness enable our schools, communities, and state to be a kinder place to live, work, learn, and play. Practicing and celebrating kindness is to look for the good, bridge connections across differences, restore hope, and empower people to make our communities strong and resilient.
PCPS expresses our gratitude for all of our school counselors and counseling department staff. We are thankful for the work they do - seen and unseen - for all of our students, staff, and families. We appreciate you!!
