Week of May 8th
Message from Principal Drew...
As you may have already heard, the Pirate Family suffered a tragic loss this past Friday with the passing of Colin Winslow. Colin was a Freshman at Perquimans County High School and he was also the son of Mrs. Holly Winslow who is the Assistant Principal at Perquimans Central School. Colin was a member of the football, baseball and. hunter safety teams at PCHS. We will have counselor, the minister's council and other mental health professionals on site at PCHS to assist students and staff throughout the day on Monday. Colin's family asks for your prayers at this time.
All Perquimans County Schools will operate on a 1 hour delay Monday. The schedule for PCHS can be found on our Facebook page.
Congratulations to Coach Aaron Burke on his selection as the Women's Track Coach of the Year. This is Coach Burke's second selection this year as Coach of the Year. Congratulations also to Jaslyn Holley and Lailana Harris on their selection as Co-Runner of the Year.
Congratulations to Mrs. Jones and the entire cast and crew of the High School Musical Spring performance. It was an outstanding show.
Congratulations also to Carter Winslow, Karsyn Clayton, Mariah Clark, and Catherine Howell on their outstanding performances at the State Math Competition this past Thursday. They each placed in the top ten of their individual math disciplines. Thanks to Mrs. Sylvia Carver for guiding and prepping the math competition team for their events.
We have 19 days until final exams and 24 days to the end of the school year. Students you have very little time left to get work made up, turned and in and graded to improve your grades. Speak with your teachers on Monday about any missing work and get it done. You still have the opportunity to reach your potential but the time to act is now. Seniors you need to be sure that grades and attendance are in good standing so that you can march with your classmates on June 9th.

How do you know what day to return your device and charger to the media center? Students must return their chromebook and charger to the media center once they have completed all required EOCs, teacher-made exams and work for this semester. If you do not have any EOCs or teacher-made exams (due to exemption), your device must be returned by June 2nd. Students taking EOCs and teacher-made exams the week of June 5th, will return their device & charger to the media center on the last day you take an exam. ALL devices and chargers must be returned to the media center no later than June 9th to avoid charges. Lost chargers are $30.00 and should be paid for when you return your device. If you have any questions, see Mrs. Heath.
