Seniors: Your senior class trip intention form and payment are due TODAY!!!!


Florida Winterim 2019: There will be a brief Florida Winterim trip informational meeting TODAY during IMs in Mr. Beekhuizen's room.  


All Students: We would like to cover your yearbook with selfies, and we would like a selfie from you!  Please forward any appropriate selfie of you or you and some friends or classmates to eaglescry@pceagles.org.  Take one at school, at work, at home, during practice, doing homework, at lunch, having fun . . . If we can get enough selfies to fill the cover of the yearbook before spring break, that would be great!  Thanks for helping us out!


Weight Room: The weight room will not be open this Friday or Monday.


Students: please take a few moments sometime today to fill out an Eagle's Cry survey that asks some questions related to the Florida school shooting.  Please be honest and take the survey seriously.  Thanks for your help!


Seniors: keep an eye on your e-mail inbox and the scholarship page of the school website for scholarship applications.  Most of the local scholarships are due April 1, but there are a few that have earlier deadlines.  The Dollars for Scholars application deadline is Wednesday, February 28.  You don't want to miss that deadline because a minimum $300 scholarship is guaranteed if you apply.  DFS will not accept late applications.  There is a DFS help night at the City of Pella Library tonight at 7:45 and there will be someone to help you at lunch on Tuesday, February 20 if you have some questions.
