Note from the PCHS Admin Team

Hello PCHS Community,

We're down to 2 weeks with our Seniors and 4 and a 1/2 with the rest of our crew! This year, compared to the last few, has really felt like it's flying by. Today was a fun one. The building and grounds were abuzz with activity! If you take a drive around our school, you will find it looking quite beautiful after the efforts of our Student Government, Garden Club, and Building & Grounds team. It was a collaborative effort, and we got such a beautiful day for it. Our Juniors also got to connect with a representative from Eastern Michigan University for a "Jumpstart" presentation intended to help them wrap their heads around priorities heading into their senior year for capitalizing on financial aid options in line with their post-high school educational goals. We are working to consistently improve our approach to career development, and this includes a step-by-step process for ensuring students know how to get where they're wanting to go after high school. This presentation today is an important piece of that puzzle!

Have a great weekend, and Go Pirates!

Mrs. McBride, Mrs. Woods, and Mrs. Buczek

Please drop off any donations to the PCHS Main Office.

Of course, while a week of good eats is always nice, just a simple note of thanks can sometimes have the most lasting impression. :)

Senior Info!

Senior Chromebook Turn-In

The PCS tech department plans to collect Senior Chromebooks over the seniors' last week at a few different times. Seniors are to bring their Chromebook AND their charger (they will be charged $40 for missing chargers). We would like to ask that ALL senior Chromebooks are turned in with no exceptions, even those seniors that have summer school or still have need of their device beyond their last day. We will issue them a loaner Chromebook when they turn their issued device in for that specified period of time if need be.

Dates and times:

  • May 17th, 18th, and 19th: For Senior's last 3 days, the PCS tech department will be in the Commons during lunches. We will set up a queue where we will check them in, perform a quick overview of the device (not comprehensive), and note any initial charges that might be forthcoming.
  • May 19th: There will be another turn-in location on seniors' last day coinciding with cap and gown pick-up during Seminar.

Senior All-Nighter

Dear Class of 2023 Parents & Students,

The Senior All-Nighter is right around the corner. If you have not done so yet, please register your Senior via this form and pay via MiStar. The event is on Thursday 6/1/23 from 7pm-1am. The cost is $25. It’s a night full of fun activities, food, and memories to be made one last time together in their school. We are hoping that every senior can go home with an awesome gift that night as well. To make this happen we are in need of donations. If you or someone you know is wanting to make a cash donation, please send the donation to PCHS, 10255 Dexter Pinckney Rd, Pinckney, MI 48169, attn: Lori Maurer.

If you would like to donate a gift, this can be done via our Amazon Wishlist.


We appreciate any donation whether it is cash or a gift. Let's make this memorable for our Seniors!
