Let's spread awareness and celebrate our Colt 45!


PICTURE RETAKE DAY is on Wednesday.  If you were never photographed back in September, or if you had your pictures taken, but need to have a retake done you will report to the Board of Education room in the elementary during your English class. If you ordered pictures the first time around and are getting a retake done, don’t forget to bring your original package of pictures to turn back in. Any faculty & staff that haven’t been photographed do so throughout the day when it is convenient for you.


There will be an Open Gym for those girls interested in trying out for JV and Varsity Girls Basketball on Tuesday after school in the North Gym until around 4PM.  This is optional and a chance for you to get up some shots before tryouts start in a couple of weeks.  Any questions, see Coach Welty. 


The Student Council, in conjunction with the American Red Cross, will be hosting a blood drive on Tuesday, November 8th in the North Gym from 8AM until 2PM.  Any student age 16 and older is eligible to donate.  Information and questions can be answered by Mrs. Welty.  Also, see her to sign up.  Our PCS goal is to have 40 people donate that day.  Please consider doing a small deed that can save three lives!
