Grizzly Update - December 13, 2016

Dance Practice for School Musical Tryouts

PJHS Parents and Students,


What a busy time of the year! There is so much to enjoy, hopefully you can take time to take in a choir concert, basketball game or wrestling match and support our great students who have worked so hard! Also, any money contributed in our Money Wars goes to local families. Please continue to encourage your students to stay up on their classes. We are down to 7 days before Christmas and 8 days after before the new semester begins!
