The 15 newest Students of the Month at PCES are fifth-graders Sophie Barker, Aireana Bickmore and Jacob Cipullo; Noah Kain and Jaiyde True representing grade 6; grade 7 honorees Khloe Kimball, Gabby Koscielny, Jonathan MacNeil, Timothy MacNeil, and Rylee White-Chabot; and eighth-graders: Scott Chadbourne, Dominic Cookson Chy-Leigh Duncan, Karlie Ellis and Wally Williams.
