For this, PCHS and other schools around the district are working with Operation Gratitude to collect items that troops overseas would need. The list of items to donate includes gallon size Ziploc bags, travel size hand sanitizers, all-purpose wipes and more. There will be a donation box in Mr. Baker’s classroom, Room 1119, to donate these items. Volunteers are also needed to assemble care packages on December 12th in Room 1119. Contact Lucas Townsend if you have any questions, and please help to make our troops’ holidays as merry as ours. Thank you.

Juniors who took the PSAT back in October, listen up!  Scores will be released soon, so there are 2 things you need to do:  First if you haven’t already, we recommend you go ahead and create your online account with College Board, as this is how you will view your scores.  If you don’t remember your login info, please do not create a second online account, as this will lock up your records and you won’t be able to view your scores. You can retrieve your login info using the ‘forgot password’ or ‘forgot username’ buttons.   And second, you need to link your scores to the Khan Academy, where you will have access to personalized test prep for the SAT. Directions for both of these steps are on the Counseling page of the PCHS website. If you have any questions, please stop by the counseling office.
