The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) is in the process of upgrading MCAS to better measure the critical thinking skills students need for success in the 21st century.
Here at PAC, we have recently created a page on our website dedicated to MCAS testing. Under "PAC Information", you can click "MCAS Information" or access the page by CLICKING HERE. We have provided some basic information as well as informative links that will explain the new test, informally called "Next-Generation MCAS". We will routinely update with any additional information we receive from the state. We hope you find this information helpful for you and your student here at PAC.
The Pilgrim Area Collaborative sponsors the “PAC Penguins” – our team for students with disabilities – for participation in the Special Olympics each year. Here are some upcoming events that our students will be participating in:

From October 2016 - March 2017, PAC will earn cash through the Stop & Shop A+ School Rewards Program!
All you have to do is:
- Log on to www.stopandshop.com/aplus to designate our school online using your Stop & Shop card (PAC's ID is 17982),
- Call the A+ Hotline at 1-877-275-2758 for assistance
Remember: If you registered your card last year, you DO NOT need to re-register this year. You can visit the website to verify correct school assignment. Also, don't forget to encourage your friends and relatives to do the same. It could mean more CASH for our school. After you register your card, each shopping trip at Stop & Shop using your card earns CASH for our school.
Each month, the amount awarded will be updated on the Stop & Shop A+ website. You can track the amount of points you earn for our school by checking your grocery receipt and online when you create an account at www.stopandshop.com. Our school will receive a check at the end of the program and the money can be used for any of our school's educational needs.
This year, Pilgrim Area Collaborative will continue to participate in the Box Tops for Education program. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help the PSO to continue to support classrooms and programs. Box Tops are each worth 10 cents and quickly add up to real cash for our school. This school year, our school's earnings goal is $1,000.00.
To help our school, just look for pink Box Tops on products, clip them and send them in to your child's classroom teacher. As an added incentive, the classroom that collects the most Box Tops will be rewarded with an end of the year Classroom Celebration! Be sure to send them in a labeled envelope/baggie including your child's name and/or teacher!
