Parents and Students - The state of West Virginia has moved to a new Student Information System WVEIS 2.0 (SIS). At this time, we are still waiting for the data integration with the new SIS and LiveGrades to be completed. Hopefully this will be completed soon. We are also finalizing the integration of the new SIS with our calling system. This should happen within the next couple of days for general calls. The state is not sending attendance data yet, so it will likely be a while longer before attendance calls start back up. We appreciate your patience while we work through all of the changes we are facing to start the new school year.
We are very excited for our new stage curtains at PCMS. The auditorium is utilized for multiple school and community events.
