PCHS Senior Newsletter

August 2019

It's a great year to be a PANTHER!

It's hard to believe that school is starting next week! I am super excited about this next school year and hope that each of you has a great senior year! I am here to assist you with your future plans! Listed below are some steps to make things much easier for you.

Email address

Create a new email address just for college applications and scholarships. This ensures that they don't get mixed in with all of your other emails. Make sure to check it daily! Students miss out on great opportunities by not checking and responding to emails! Don't let this happen to you.

Remember.....Triple E - EMPLOY ENLIST ENROLL
