Week of Sept. 11th
Message from Principal Drew...
Seniors, if you have not received your meningococcal vaccine and submitted proof of vaccination to the school nurse you must do so by September 27. This is required for all students by North Carolina law and there is not flexibility in the date for completion. If you have not received the vaccine and submitted proof of vaccination by the end of the day on September 27 you will not be able to attend any activities at PCHS including regular classes, athletic events, band concerts and plays. Please contact your health provider to address this issue as soon as possible.

Believe in You
Our core Social Emotional Learning will feature monthly lessons from the Believe in You Video series. This month's challenge is: STEP UP. IF NOT YOU, WHO? Kevin Atlas tells us that if you believe in yourself, the world will fall in line. His story encourages us to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. That is how we change the world: one gesture, one effort at a time, together. Imagine a school or even a community where everyone is devoted to doing their best and supporting each other. Speak up or lend a hand, and see where it takes us together.
