From the Desk of Mrs. Huntsman
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week, and it’s time to shine a light on our amazing PCA faculty! I didn’t envision honoring our teachers in the middle of a pandemic. Still, I’d like to say with the deepest sincerity, the speed, passion, and determination to transform their delivery for optimal learning made my head spin! It became apparent very quickly, to the entire community, that Plymouth Christian teachers provide much more than academic instruction. They have stepped up in ways I could not have imagined and have gone to extraordinary lengths to swiftly and seamlessly transition to a distance learning platform. I couldn’t be prouder of them and this rewarding profession.
Given all that’s happened over the last several weeks, I can honestly say that Plymouth Christian teachers genuinely embody the core of our brand. Central to what we do and who we are is the Christ-centered, educational experience that Plymouth Christian provides. Whether on campus or from a distance, our teachers empower students to know and understand the real hope we have in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ. Our mission has never been more critical.  We partner together with families to educate students from a biblical worldview and equip them for a lifetime of learning, leadership, and service.
Our teachers continue to deliver a Christ-centered education with tremendous dedication, unwavering optimism, unmatched courage, and love for every PCA student!  Driven by a passion for educating young people in light of eternity, our teachers help students thrive, not just survive, amid challenges with perseverance, patience, and faith. It is an honor to celebrate the teachers who consistently make a difference in the lives of young people through this challenging time in our world. In all of this, they are role models, demonstrating flexibility and adaptability during times of upheaval.  We are honored to show our sincere gratitude to all those incredible role models who continue to make a difference and help us learn and grow and finish well!
Educating for Eternity,
Caryn Huntsman
PCA Superintendent

The Class of 2020
We are so excited to honor the Class of 2020 with several different ideas over the next few weeks. PCA Family…Mark your Calendar for MAY 19! See the details below!
  1. Watch our FB and Instagram as we celebrate a senior each day. Share a message with them in the comment section and we’ll be sure to make sure they receive those messages when we complete our “Senior Salute” social media campaign. Special thanks to Hannah Askew, Class of 2020, for creating the graphics we are using in this campaign!
  2. In place of the traditional Senior Walk, the Class of 2020 will be part of an epic Senior Car Parade! The entire PCA family is invited to join us on Tuesday, May 19, 4 pm, when our senior class will be taking to the streets in their decorated cars in a parade as we cheer them on. Information will be coming soon with the parade route and the details about returning to PCA’s campus following the parade to capture photos of our seniors outside their cars. Seniors…you’ll be receiving a separate email with all the info you need to know!
  3. In addition to the traditional Class of 2020 yard sign, we will be producing yard signs with your senior photo that will line our campus. This photo needs to be a high- resolution HORIZONTAL (PORTRAIT) headshot from among your senior pics. Please send that picture to Peggy Paulson at peggy.paulson@plymouthchristian.org by Wednesday, May 6.
  4. We had a fabulous day this past Friday delivering yard signs and their cap and gowns to our seniors. To view and download the pictures taken on this day, click the button below. Special thanks to Mike Costello, Dana Zambeck, and Yvonne Cole for contributing to this photo gallery!
We love our seniors!

Prayer Focus
This week, let’s acknowledge God as our GUIDE.  He shows us the way to go by leading, directing, and advising us.  In this time where the days ahead feel very uncertain, we can trust God to be our faithful guide, one step at a time.
“For this God is our God for ever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.” – Psalm 48:14
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul.  He guides me along the right paths for His name’s sake.” – Psalm 23:1-3
“Because of your great compassion you did not abandon them in the wilderness.  By day the pillar of cloud did not fail to guide them on their path, nor the pillar of fire by night to shine on the way they were to take.  You gave your good Spirit to instruct them.” – Nehemiah 9:19-20
School Prayer Requests:
  • May each student, teacher, and parent find peace and joy by trusting in God as their guide amidst this time of uncertainty
  • May God protect the health of our families and community
  • May students and staff have the strength and endurance to finish the school year strong
  • May our administrators have wisdom and clarity as they lead our school
We are praying for you, our PCA family, in this challenging time! 
Jen Hock and Sarah Batson, Moms in Prayer Leaders
