This sales tax would be a new revenue sources for our schools. It will allow our district to maintain and improve facilities for our students and the public without raising property taxes. It will allow our district to provide property tax relief to our citizens. All people passing through and shopping in our communities will be helping to pay for the betterment of our schools. Even with the 1% increase (one penny per dollar) our sales tax rates will still be in line with other communities in Illinois.

Congratulations to our Papa Murphy's Award Winners: Ms. Swanson nominated Cole Russell. Cole is a diligent and respectful student. He shows up every day ready to learn and actively seeks feedback on his work. Cole has worked hard to improve his writing in our Dual Credit English course. He works well with his peers and is a class leader in behavior and engagement. It is a privilege to have Cole in class, and I would love for him to be recognized for the work he has done so far this semester! Mrs. Smith nominated Brandy Jackson & Maddison Clifton. Brandy and Maddison have stepped up to the plate to lead the Publications class. Both were selected as our editor-in-chiefs this year. They have been leading the class and making a lot of decisions for the yearbook. For instance, who gets what pages, and who will be editors. They have also selected different layouts and led discussions on how to choose an effective theme. I cannot wait to see how they put their heads together to create the 2018-2019 yearbook.

For the very first time in PCHS history, we are announcing the “Flying the P” award. Every Friday from here on out we are going to recognize a Dragon or a plethora of Dragons for their outstanding contributions to PCHS. This week’s recipient is the D-T-S, otherwise known as “Dragon Tech Support”. These 9 students spent the summer helping to get all of your Chromebooks ready to go for the first day of school. And now, let’s meet the D-T-S nine: Carter Bumbalough David Creech Zac Farson Steven Johnson Myles Oesch Benjamin Peterson Thomas Potter Ian Sayles and William Shea As the inaugural members of the “Flying the P” club, they have signed their names to the Pekin flag hanging in the cafeteria. Who will emblazon their name on the flag next week? Find out next Friday, same dragon time, same dragon channel.

PCHS partnered with the American Red Cross to present the Prom Night Crash Reenactment to junior and senior students today. Students witnessed a staged drunk-driving scenario and heard from a local mother that had been impacted regarding the implications of driving impaired. A huge thanks to all of our local agencies for their partnership. #dragonpride

Papa Murphy's Students Of the Month Mrs. Hudson nominated Jade Wage. Jade has worked really hard in research writing and made vast improvements. She is conscientious and hardworking with a kind heart. She's quiet, so she typically might fly under the radar but I adore having her as a student. Mrs. Mccann nominated Derrick Wright. Derrick started in the program as a shy, soft spoken freshman and has grown into a talented, dedicated leader. Derrick is always on time, works hard and is ready for all rehearsals with all materials. Derrick sets the example for his peers by showing positivity and light hearted care for others. He always volunteers to help where needed and offers his time to those that need additional instruction.

Wellness day is going to be on Thursday, April 19th this year and will be the largest event yet! This is a day for all students in PE/Health/Dance/Drivers Ed. All the students in their respective class period will come to Hawkins gym that day and walk around to different stations we have in the gym. The stations are various businesses and organizations from the Pekin/Peoria Community that represent the whole spectrum of Health and Wellness. We will have over 40 stations with a variety of topics to address many areas of need for our students. It is a day filled with interaction for our students to remind/educate them of things they have learned in health class but to remind them that there is more to your health than just eating right and exercising.
