Happy First Week of Autumn!

September 29, 2021
By Crystal Ford, PELC CEM

Welcome to our guest writer and new campus enrollment manager, Crystal Ford, mom of two alumni who attended childcare through grade 12: 

Autumn leaves and pumpkins please!  Happy first week of autumn and welcome to the new school year. I’m excited to be your new campus enrollment manager. I’ve been blessed to be a part of the Cascade Family for almost 25 years; both of my kids started their CCS education at the Puyallup Early Learning Center.

This fall is off to a great start. Our classrooms are full of eager students and teachers excited to be in the classroom. Our awesome, hard-working teachers and administrators started planning for the fall in the early spring. When you walk through the PELC hallways, I hope you feel the love the entire staff has for your kids.

Among the many things I love about PELC includes watching your kids laughing and building relationships. I also love how the teachers share Christ-centered values with their students. At CCS, even the youngest children are learning about Jesus and experiencing the CCS mission: “To glorify God by providing an excellent Christ-centered education dedicated to developing discerning leaders who are spiritually, personally, and academically prepared to impact their world.”

I was blessed to meet many families at Back-to-School Night, and I look forward to getting to know more of you as the year progresses.  

Thank you for entrusting your children’s care with PELC!

Children are a gift from the Lord.
they are a reward from him.  —Psalm 127:3 (NLT)
