PCEF Educator Wellness Initiative - Support for Our PCSD Community During COVID

PCEF is committed to helping our PCSD community of principals, teachers, and staff during this unprecedented time. We recognize that our PCSD community is experiencing fatigue, stress, and anxiety. We want to recognize and express our sincere gratitude for our educators during this challenging time AND we want to help in the most meaningful ways possible!

As a result, we have asked the community to help YOU and we have put together resources, activities, and discounts.  Please check this page regularly for new and limited time specials.

THERE ARE MANY RESOURCES! Be sure to scroll down to see all the resources and the Discount Directory!

If you have a service or activity to offer, please contact Kara Cody kcody@pcschools.org.

Thank you to LYT YOGA for providing two free classes to our educators in early December.

  • Amy and Mara’s friendship and professional relationship of 20 years creates a welcoming learning environment.  

  • The group is ideal for people who are in need of skills to manage reactivity, mood and the physical/emotional costs of the stress response.   Because the group is limited to 9 participants it is a supportive and productive environment for healing.  The group teaches a variety of self-care skills and is therefore especially helpful for people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic disease, and/or traumatic events.
