If you have a 9TH GRADE student who received an "F" in English, Math, Science, or History then we will provide a summer school option, for those interested, to earn a passing grade.  We unfortunately do not have the means or staff to provide credit recovery for any other subject areas or grades. The cost will be $25 to be paid at PJHS finance office before May 27th (last day of school). To register or for more information email your student's counselor and let them know you are interested:

Locker Clean Out
Be aware that our end-of-the-year procedures for cleaning out lockers have changed this year. Lockers need to be cleaned out by the end of school on May 24th. All students who have been assigned a school locker will be given a note in class prior to the 24th to remind them of the deadline. Staff will be inspecting the lockers that afternoon for any damage or graffiti. Any items left in the lockers after May 27th will be either donated or dumped. 
National Junior Honors Society Recognitions
We want to recognize the students who earned their NJHS certificates last week. The following students met all requirements (attendance, service hours, and participation in a group service project):  Ashlyn Alevy, Bailey Brokaw, Alayna Chidester, Sabrina Collins, Allison Daems, Sophia Frisby, Olivia Monahan, Kathryn Morgan, Juan Rivas, Abbygale Rowley, Dylan Thiel, and Eliza Wilder.
We also had 4 students who won the Presidential Service Award. Allison Daems and Evan Laker both earned the Bronze award, serving for 50+ hours throughout the year. Sophia Frisby earned the silver award, serving 75+ hours this year.  Kathryn Morgan earned the gold award for serving 100+ hours this year. Congratulations to these amazing students!
