Pickens High School
Mrs. Boehm's theater and chorus classes are in the process of raising money for their New York trip in the spring. Students who plan to go on the trip are selling World's Finest Chocolate for one dollar. For every chocolate bar sold, students receive a portion of the money to help pay for the upcoming trip; so find a member of the department to help fund their trip.
On Thursday, January 26th, PHS will be hosting the $1.98 Pageant, as well as our first-ever man auction. Male students may volunteer to dress up as women and participate in a beauty pageant. These boys will also be auctioned off to do a range of things, from taking bidders shopping to washing their cars. To sign up for the pageant and auction, students can talk to Mrs. Boehm for further information; however, if students are looking to bid in the auction or just enjoy the show, tickets will be sold at the door for $3. The money being raised from the events will go towards the drama department's upcoming spring production Big Fish. If you're interested in having a fun time and supporting a good cause, join us at the pageant and auction this year.
Pickens High School's drama department is working head-over-hills for the upcoming production Big Fish. Big Fish is a full-length production that will be preformed on March 20-22. Big Fish is a movie and play that is about a dad named Edward who has mystical stories that he tells his son when he was a kid. The major story he tells his son, Will, is about him and his two friends searching for a witch to tell their fortune. He is amazed by how his death will occur. His son begins to feel betrayed and frustrated because all he knows about his father is the mythical stories he told. So his son begins to stop believing in all of the stories until he starts seeing all of the story characters in real life, and starts to become really curious as to what stories were real and what had truly happened in his father's life. Come join Will's son as he discovers all the fabulous stories from his father's life.
AP/Honors and MOWR Night
From AP Biology to Honors English, Pickens High School has a wide variety of classes that students here may choose from. Many students have undergone the struggle of choosing which class is the right one for them. On Monday, January 23, Pickens High School will be hosting an AP/Honors and Pathway night for students and parents. From 5:30 to 7:30, parents and students will listen to a short presentation concerning college financial aid, and then students will be able to meander with their parents through a wonder of tables with information on them. Teachers have worked hard to show parents and students how educational, yet lively, their classes are and will present information that will prove valuable for students’ futures. Teachers will also be available to answer any questions that may arise throughout the night.
