In addition to meeting administrators, the newcomers learned about district policies and procedures, toured the district and became acclimated to their classrooms.

“This group is very excited to start,” said PCSD Superintendent Christopher Byrne. “I’m looking forward to the school year with these talented new hires. Welcome to the Firebird family.”
