• Good morning! Yesterday PCHS had students audition for the ILMEA District 4 band, choir, orchestra and jazz groups. These groups are made up of students from throughout central Illinois. These kids have been preparing their auditions for months and have worked very hard for this honor. Students selected will represent PCHS at the ILMEA District festivals in November and, based on their performance, will be eligible for selection to go to All-State in January! If you happen to see these students today please congratulate them on a job well done! It’s a GREAT day to be a Dragon!!!!
