February is Career and Technical Education Month. Pekin High School has 70 courses to choose from in CTE. In this article from Business Insider, more than half do not require more than a H.S. diploma, almost all of which we offer some degree of orientation. The ones that require an Associates Degree or certificate program, we offer some of that credit right here in the high school classes, certified through ICC or the State. The median salary for all these jobs is at least $60,000.00 based on the latest data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. https://www.businessinsider.com/high-paying-jobs-dont-require-bachelors-degree-2015-10

As the end of winter seems to be in sight, we take time to recognize a group of people for whom this time of year means particularly long, difficult days. Although they always keep our buildings sparkling clean and our facilities up and running, in the winter months they have to deal with the added challenges brought by cold, snow, and ice. An extra level of applause goes out to these amazing people for handling an especially problematic day last week that had them cleaning up after "the crash," clearing overnight snow, and setting up for Parent/Teacher Conferences, all in less than 24 hours (which meant some individuals went without any sleep)! Nothing stops this crew from making sure PCHS is student-ready on a daily basis, and none of us could do what we do without them!

Here are the belated January Papa Murphy's Students of the Month - Mrs. Alyson Smith nominated Samantha Curtis. Sami is the editor-in-chief of the yearbook this year. She has been spending hours and hours on the yearbook so far. She helps guide the class and is always available for any questions. Her schedule is incredibly busy, but she still finds time to work yearbook into her schedule. As of today, she has spent 185 hours on the yearbook to make this year's yearbook the best yet! LTC Lawrence Hallstrom nominated Cooper Davis. Cooper is kind, caring, and professional in all that he chooses to participate in at PCHS and within the community. He has grown into a leader in four short years and demonstrated these traits as the PCHS JROTC Battalion Commander. Because of his leadership, the Dragon Battalion this year received Gold Star status by the US Army. Cadet Davis competes on our Drill team, volunteers his time in the community as a member of JROTC, and spends countless hours assisting fellow Cadets. He maintains greater than a 3.5 GPA and plans on attending Illinois State University and becoming an officer in the US Army through the ROTC program.

This week we will be honoring a group of students who volunteer around the school every Friday with the hopes of helping maintain the cleanliness and integrity of the inside and outside of the school building. Rotating every week, the students volunteer by cleaning, organizing, and sanitizing the library, collecting recycling in the B/C and A200 Hallway, picking up trash and debris outside on campus (in the warmer months), running errands for teachers, and combating flu season by sanitizing tables and chairs, doorknobs, and cleaning windows. These students are thoughtful in their work and work hard for the good of PCHS. Please help me in congratulating these students!

We are excited to announce this week's winners of the "Flying the P" award! This week we will be honoring seven students who recently represented PCHS on a student panel for WEEK 25 news. As part of the panel, they provided insight from a high school student's perspective on how to choose what career or college to pursue after high school and why. The students provided honest answers to sometimes difficult questions about the opportunities available to students, societal stereotypes of careers, and ultimately their own personal reasons for their after high school plan. Their segment will air on WEEK on the 5:00 and 10:00 news on Thursday, January 30th. Please help me us congratulating these students for representing PCHS and a job well done!

We are excited to announce this week's winners of the "Flying the P" award! This week we will be honoring both a group and an individual! First up are the JROTC cadets! On December 3rd, the PCHS Army JROTC Dragon Battalion participated in a Joint Program Assessment as part of the U.S. Army Cadet Command at Ft. Knox, KY. The U.S Army 3rd Brigade Inspection team inspected 172 Cadets from the Dragon Battalion in full Dress uniform and also their Drill and Color Guard teams. In addition, briefings took place reviewing every aspect of the program including: interviews of Cadets and their goals, community service projects, and improvement projects within the Battalion. We are excited to announce the Dragon Battalion Cadets received an overall score of 98.5% and gained the Gold Star which recognizes the school and the JROTC program as an Honor Unit Distinction. Next up is senior wrestler Ryan Haynes! Last weekend Ryan Haynes achieved his 100th varsity win! Ryan is a four year varsity wrestler, a two year captain, a state qualifier, and has earned over 30 wins each wrestling season! Please help us in congratulating all of these students and their amazing accomplishments! #dragonpride

These students represented PCHS by traveling to Springfield onThursday, November 14th to perform at the Illinois Education and Technology Conference (IETC). They shared the joy of Dragon music making with IETC Conference attendees, and were excited to share the music that they spent a lot of hard work and time preparing. Not only did they sing spectacularly, but they illustrated #dragonpride in their presentation, demeanor, and enthusiasm for choral music! Please help us in congratulating these students!
