A Message from Our Principal

Welcome to Petersham Center School (PCS).

Here at PCS we think of ourselves as much more than just a school. We are a community, a family, and that's how we treat our students. We are lucky enough to have some of the most dedicated staff you will find in any school. We foster and encourage open and respectful communication between students, staff, and families. Being a small school, we are able to create an environment where each student knows their teachers on a deeper level and create relationships over the course of years as they move up our halls.

We are aware that it is unsettling and difficult times for students, staff, and parents. However, with positive collaboration we have demonstrated how much can be accomplished with a caring and supportive community such as ours. We are all here for each other, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. My door is always open.

Thank you,

Aaron O’Connor
Principal
Petersham Center School
