The intruder drill on Friday was very successful. Thank you to the parents and students for being prepared and for following teacher directions.

Students are reminded that any attire that is lewd, vulgar, suggestive or has a symbol or image that is not appropriate for school should not be worn at PCHS.

Lunch is not free to all students this year. If you have not completed a lunch application please do so as soon as possible if you feel you would qualify. Students who have charged three times in the cafeteria will not be allowed to charge any more and will not be allowed to get a lunch from the cafeteria.

Congratulations to Mr. Amos Fletcher and Mrs. Nita Skinner for being selected as the September classified employees of the month. Congratulations also to Mrs. Anisha Spellman and Mrs. Jan Tripp on being selected as the September certified employees of the month. Thanks to each of you on a job well done.

A reminder that Monday, September 26, is an optional teacher workday and students will not have school on this day.

We are looking forward to a great week and to seeing each of you in the morning.
