PCSD Parent Stakeholder Survey
The district will be administering online school surveys and all parents and guardians are invited to take the survey.
The purpose of the survey is to gather feedback about teachers, principals, and schools. Responses are anonymous and no personal information is collected. Results will be given to teachers and administrators and used to improve classrooms and schools. The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete.

‘A Night at the Museum’ Evening: March 27, 4:30-8:00pm
Middle level students have unique needs and capabilities and are truly caught in the middle between childhood and adulthood. Students at Ecker Hill hold the key to much of what they know and are able to do. They understand their strengths and they can identify the things that are difficult for them. Too often they are the last people consulted in evaluating their own learning.
This spring we are holding a ‘A Night at the Museum’ evening in place of regular conferences. This will provide all of our students an opportunity to showcase their work and allow them to discuss their learning. ‘A Night at the Museum’ at Ecker Hill will focus on students and their growth. There are three main purposes for this evening:
- Show evidence of student learning.
- Provide opportunity for students to reflect on their learning.
- Foster and promote responsible, respectful, and productive relationships among school, family and community.
We are excited to see you all on March 27. ‘A Night at the Museum’ begins at 4:30pm and concludes at 8:00pm. Students have worked hard and are proud of their work.
Your child may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Assistance is available to those who qualify. Please bring in a completed application (en español.) Note: Proof of need must be attached to the application before it can be processed.
Online Lunch Account System: PayPAMS (lunch balances roll over each year)
Parent PowerSchool Access
To set up a Parent PowerSchool Account, parents will need their student’s parent access ID and password. (This information is mailed home the first week of September.) Parents can link all of their students to one Parent Account, all you need is the parent access ID and password for each of your students. For instructions, see the Parent Single Sign-On Instruction Sheet.
If you lose, or didn’t receive, your Parent Account set-up instructions, contact the school. For security reasons, we will not give out account information by phone, fax, or email. Logins can be picked up in person or mailed to the home address we have on file. PowerSchool logins are reset every summer to protect your privacy.
With a Parent PowerSchool Account, parents will have access to a special Email Notifications page where they can sign up for automatic progress reports. Because of this exclusive feature, it is highly recommended that parents keep their account ID and password confidential and not share it with their student. Students get their own ID and password when they pick up their laptop.
