Seniors going on class trip who have a temporary drivers license should pick up a DOT After Hours Driving Waiver in the office. Have a parent sign the form and keep it with you in your car.


Cheer Tryouts (UPDATED): There will be a pre-season/tryout cheer camp at PCHS on May 21-23 (note date change), from 4:45-7:00 p.m. each evening. Coach Amy will schedule a meeting for girls who are currently in high school the week prior to tryouts.

Tulip Time Announcements:

-The PCHS float is still in need of riders. Get a group together and sign up in the office soon!

-Just a reminder that if you are being scheduled to work at a church or community booth or parking lot during the Thursday and/or Friday mornings of Tulip Time, those excuses must come from your parents, and must be in by next week Tuesday.

-The Tulip Time Steering Committee is reminding students that during Tulip Time roller blades, scooters, bikes, skateboards etc. are NOT allowed at the festival. This includes anywhere within barricades. They thank you for your cooperation.

MAP Testing: A couple reminders for your tests Thursday and Friday:

-Make sure you charge your Chromebook!  This is so important for Thurs & Friday and you did a great job with it in the fall for these tests. 

-IMPORTANT: Make sure you change your resolution before the test. Simply head to Settings and then Display, and make sure your Display Size says Native or 100%. For the testing app to work, it needs to be at the default resolution of your machine. Your test will not start if it is not set to the Native resolution for your device.  Do it today!!!
