HOMECOMING 4 HOMELESS

Homecoming 4 Homeless is a campaign to raise money for The Samaritan Inn, the largest homeless shelter in Collin County. For $25.50, you can make a difference by purchasing this year's H4H shirt - all profits will go to the inn! Wear it instead of a homecoming group shirt, or just because.

This year's shirt is a long-sleeved Comfort Color shirt with a frocket, and is perfect for those cold football games. Fill out the order form and pay online, or mark to pay in person at school - we'll have a booth set up in the Cafeteria on Thurs., Sept. 15th, Tues., Sept. 20th & Thurs., Sept. 22nd to collect cash/check.

HAVING TROUBLE ACCESSING YOUR GRADES?

Effective immediately, access to grades has been restored. You may continue to navigate to your grades through MyPISD, but should understand that they will be asked to login twice: once to MyPISD and a second time to Pinnacle. In both cases, the IDs and passwords will be the same.

Alternatively, because we have “de-coupled” MyPISD from Pinnacle, students can go directly to http://gradebook.pisd.edu with a direct link to the gradebook, students may also add the page directly to their mobile devices’ home screens for easy access.

STUDENT ID CARDS

Juniors and Seniors, your student ID cards will be delivered to your U.S. History class or English 4 class in the next two weeks. If you do not receive your card, please come to ISS and we will make arrangements to get your card made.

There are several other ways to stay connected:

* Please follow us on Twitter @PSHSWildcats

* PSHS website at http://k-12.pisd.edu/schools/pshs/

* PSHS PTSA (Parent, Teacher, Student Assoc.) website http://www.planoseniorptsa.org/

* PISD (Plano Independent School District) website at http://pisd.edu/
