#dragonpride Senior Jayson Presley of Pekin, IL has received a scholarship for flight training, thanks to EAA Chapter 563 of Peoria and the Ray Aviation Scholarship program administered by the Experimental Aircraft Association in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The Ray Aviation Scholars program provides $10,000 scholarships to 100 young people who are seeking to learn to fly. The Ray Foundation is providing $1 million annually to fund the program, which seeks to improve the flight training success rate from the current industry average of 20 percent to 80 percent for program participants. Local EAA chapters are responsible for identifying youth for the Ray Aviation Scholarship program and mentoring them through flight training. The Ray Foundation is furthering the legacy of James Ray, an EAA lifetime member who was dedicated to aviation and youth education. The initiative is designed to help meet the tremendous future demand for pilots and associated aviation careers. Jayson Presley will be training at Allmond Aviation based at Mt. Hawley airport in Peoria. The scholarship is designed to support a flight student through both written and practical segments of flight training that are part of successful FAA pilot certification.

Congratulations to Alexis Epkins who was been named as an Illinois Golden Apple Scholar for the Class of 2019. The Golden Apple Scholars of Illinois Program is a prestigious multi-year teacher preparation and scholarship program that selects exceptional students who aspire to be teachers in Illinois schools-of-need. In return for a commitment to serve for five years in an Illinois school-of-need, Scholars receive academic support throughout college, tuition assistance, residential Scholar Institutes which include first-hand classroom experiences, job placement assistance, and mentoring during the first years of teaching. Golden Apple Scholars graduate at high rates and STAY in teaching, with 82% who excel as teachers in schools-of-need for five or more years. Importantly, Principals say that Golden Apple Scholars are better prepared to teach on Day 1 than those prepared by any other program. #dragonpride

PCHS will make every effort to hold graduation outside this Sunday, May 19th. The decision of where graduation will take place will be made at 10am on Sunday morning, and we will then communicate that out via our social media platforms. In the event that we move indoors, we are making additional arrangements to accommodate people’s families. We will be giving each graduate an additional 2 tickets today at graduation practice for use on Sunday. These tickets will be given directly to the graduates and do not need to be picked up at the school. A reminder that seating will be tight so we ask for your patience and understanding as we try to facilitate more seating. Tickets are not needed for children 4 and under. Doors will open at 1:00pm and the saving of seats will not be allowed. As a reminder, no matter where the ceremony is held, live streaming of the ceremony can be found on our Facebook page (Pekin Community High School District 303) for those who cannot attend the ceremony in person. Congratulations to the Class of 2019!

We are very excited to announce this week's winners of the "Flying the P" award! This week we are honoring eleven students from Mr. Shepard's Landscaping class. The Landscaping class turned an 1800 sq ft jungle into a well manicured place of tranquility. Students poured two concrete patios, built two pergolas and installed a curved paver walkway adjoining the two, completed with sitting walls on either side. Finally, all the hardscapes were accented with fresh barberries, ornamental grasses, and lilacs. The students have poured their hearts into this project through the heat, cold and mud. #dragonpride Ryan Connel Kaiden Delong Logan Flier Ashton Grice Dallas Haynes Jolynn Rue Izabelle Shay Zerandon Swain Brayden Timmons Tristian Williams Devon Womeldorff

Their dedication to discussing topics that were relevant to them, as well as the nation, was visible all week as they visited the sites of Washington D.C.

We are very excited to announce this week's winners of the "Flying the P" award! This week we will be honoring three PCHS students for their outstanding accomplishment in the world of dance. These three students were chosen as the top dance group in the Hamilton Education Program in Mrs. Johnson's dance classes where they chose a song from the Musical Hamilton and created a dance that best told the story of their music. Their dance has earned them the opportunity to potentially be selected to perform on the Hamilton stage in Chicago when the dance classes travel there in May to attend the musical. Congratulations to the following students: Alaina Dewitt Hunter Hawkins Jaelyn McGhghy

March Papa Murphy Senior Students Mrs. Carrington nominated Lauraella Everhart. She is the most compassionate, hard-working senior I know. Lauraella plays tennis and is an even better student. She has a great personality and constantly supports others. On top of all she does here at school, she also holds down a job after school and fully dedicates herself to her responsibilities. Mr. Pummill and Mr. Holzwarth nominated Samuel Dunn. Not only is he a good athlete, he is an even better student. He is bright, insightful, friendly, and compassionate. He always demonstrates respect for authority and his peers, conducts himself as a moral, humble gentleman, and has a work ethic which is second to none.
