Academic, Music, Art Competitions
Music & Art
PCCS students participate weekly in music performance, both vocal and instrumental. Praise leaders are invited to lead Chapel periodically throughout the semester. PCCS students consistently place at the State Fine Arts Meet in Vocal Solo, Vocal Ensemble, Instrumental Solo, Instrumental Ensemble, Choir, Performing Band and Interpretive Dance. PCCS piano and vocal students also excel each year at the ACSI Music Meet. Over the years, the PCCS percussion students (Drumline) have been invited to perform for the annual MLK Celebration of Terrell as well as for the Terrell High School Black History Month program and has medaled at the state fine arts meet. Private guitar lessons (acoustic, electric, bass, mandolin) and private piano lessons are offered on Monday-Thursday afternoons during the 6th and 7th periods and after school. PCCS is proud to send more than 25 entries annually to the ACSI in Dallas and State Art and Music Meets.
PCCS is blessed with many opportunities for students to learn new skills and compete. In 2016, PCCS chartered its first Scouting troupe which is only available to enrolled PCCS students--it is a growing program with family involvement. The Kaufman County 4-H Extension Service welcomes student participation in learning and competing (e.g., the Spring Kaufman County Fair in such categories as art, recycled art, chili cook-off, jewelry, goat showing, and more)! PCCS has also worked with the Texas Stream Team to study water quality and sample/analyze water from a local tributary to send results to the Texas Stream Team for its longitudinal study. Over the years, our 4-H liaison has also provided opportunities to prepare for and compete in competitions for robotics, photography, quilting and recycled art. We continue to seek out competition opportunities in any field.
