PECI is excited to host our first Grade 7 & 8 Parent Open House on October 11tth from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. The evening is an opportunity to come together for a meet and greet with the staff in the Junior Cafeteria, hear some helpful tips for being a Panther Parent and then proceed up to see the classrooms where your student(s) learn.
We respectfully remind parents that this is not a parent/guardian/teacher interview, rather a social engagement for everyone to enjoy. Parents and guardians seeking a specific discussion with a teacher regarding their student are requested to contact the school to book an appointment.
Research shows that students who have parents/guardians who are engaged in their learning are more successful in school. In short, when it matters to you, it matters to our students. We hope you are able to join us on October 11th, Happy Fall until we meet again. #BetterTogether

Two teams of PECI programmers took part in a board-wide computer programming contest requiring them to program a computer to solve a series of challenging tasks. At the end of the competition our grade 12 team, consisting of Iain Cameron, Ryan Haskin, and Jake Sullivan had captured 2nd place overall, and the grade 11 team of Nolan Belnap, Wyatt Gilbert, Hannah Hungerford, and Patrik Kelemen placed 3rd. As a result of these finishes the teams have been invited to move on to represent our school board at an Eastern Ontario Regional Contest to be held at Queen's University at the end of April.
Thank you to coach Mr. Kulenkamp for your support and leadership in organizing this event for the District! It is great to see our students excelling in critical & creative thinking. #HPECompetencies #PantherPride
