News Briefs: Final Week For Senior Portraits

Here is what is happening for the week of Oct 15th to Oct 19th.

This week will be the final opportunity for seniors to take their photo for the yearbook.

Underclassmen will be called down throughout the morning.

Tryouts for Sideline Basketball Cheer will be held November 5, 7, 8 from 3:00-5:00pm in the PGHS Auxiliary gym.  You must have a physical on the VHSL Physical form dated after May 1, 2018 and Head Injury Release form to participate.  Tryout packets may be picked up in the main office of the High School and Clements beginning October 15th.  Please contact Coach Haydt or Slaybaugh if you have any questions.

If you have a flair for the dramatic, enjoy an audience, or just want to work on your fear of public speaking, Forensics might be for you!  Come out to an interest meeting for the Forensics team on Wednesday, October 17th at 2:45 in room A29. High school forensics has nothing to do with analyzing crime scenes, but instead is all about public speaking!  The meeting will help you to understand more about forensics and in what categories you might compete.  We will also review our competition schedule.There is no pressure to commit, just information on how much fun we have in practice and at tournaments.  If you cannot attend, but are still interested in more information, please see Mrs. Andersen, forensics coach, in A-30 or in A-faculty as soon as possible.

The SGA is collecting socks to donate to homeless shelters. It’s called Socktober! Bring your pairs of socks (any styles, any sizes) to room A-33.
