Diana C. LoboscoEducation is like a tapestry, each thread distinct yet intertwined with its peers to form a complete picture. Stand too close, and the image is lost; only the weave remains. Leave out a thread, and the pattern is flawed. As educators, it is up to us to bring the threads together. The connections that our students must make during the four years they are here at PCTI are widespread and complex. Technology has blazed new pathways, making these young men and women not only residents of their hometowns, but citizens of a global community. It has opened doors to new careers and opportunities, and placed at their fingertips limitless avenues for exploration.
It is, indeed, as Aldus Huxley termed it: "A Brave New World." At PCTI we realize the part technology will play in our students’ futures and are dedicated to giving them the skills they will need to meet the challenges that they will face. But like the master weaver, it is up to educators to consider the entire picture. We must provide the threads that will allow each young person to develop into a full and well-rounded individual, capable of living up to his or her full potential - intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially.
Through our extensive academic offerings, our clubs and organizations, our athletics and our support personnel, PCTI is capable of meeting the needs of each individual student. It is up to them to create the masterpiece they wish to become. We invite you, the parents and friends of PCTI to be a part of an undertaking. You are an integral thread in the education of our young men and women. Get involved. Together we can create a tapestry richer and fuller than any one of us can do alone.
