(Notes from Our Families)

New Name. New Logo. New Website.
SAME HEART

pcd logo

In this, our 50th Anniversary year, we wanted to celebrate our foundational and meaningful past while looking toward a bright future of growth in caring for children of all abilities through our educational and therapeutic programming. One way we are doing that is re-branding with a new name, logo and website to better engage and communicate with our community; to better reflect who we are.

We are celebrating and strengthening the partnerships that got us to where we are today, and inviting new ones to join us in our mission – Nurturing the growth and potential of every child. We are proud to remain child-centered and family-focused and in so doing will continue to engage, enrich and educate children of all abilities.

Children are meant to thrive; your partnership helps us make sure they do!

WELCOME to PCD!!

💙 Why We TROT FOR TOTS. "WE TROT for our school community! This year's race marks our third Trot - we wouldn't miss it for anything! As the family of an Anderson School student, we find that each race brings an even greater sense of community and connection to PCD. We love seeing our son's teachers, classmates, and therapists cheering each other on and enjoying a Sunday morning together. Participating in and raising funds for the Trot has been a wonderful way to give back to the school that has given us so much."- The Pounds Family* To sign up: mypcd.org/trot-for-tots/#PCDevents #TrotforTots @North Reading, MA North Reading Mom's Club Sole Sisters Running Club Merrimack Valley Striders Greater Lowell Road Runners Andover Townsman Andover SEPAC North Andover Special Education Parents Advisory Council - NA SEPAC SEPAC Lawrence, MA METHUEN SEPAC ...
