Don't forget to nominate a PCHS alum! - https://5il.co/moc1 Pekin Community High School is very proud of its past and would like the chance to celebrate those who have come before and recognize the great alumni who have gone on to make significant contributions to the world after their time spent at PCHS. We believe these people serve as role models to inspire current and future generations of students. In this spirit, we are reaching out to you hoping that some of you would have the desire to nominate a fellow classmate or PCHS alum who you know who has gone on to do wonderful/extraordinary things. The nomination needs to be filled out a returned to Dr. Danielle Owens by January 8, 2021 to be considered for this year's selection process. Anyone nominated must meet the following criteria: * Graduated from PCHS or attended for at least 2 years. * Is at least 30 years of age at the time of nomination. * Is not a current employee or Board Member of PCHS. * Demonstrates a high level of achievement in his/her field and makes significant contributions to that field. We hope to recognize our Distinguished Alum(ni) at our Homecoming Festivities typically held during the first week of October. We recognized our first class of Distinguished Alumni in the fall of 2019, and the class of 2020 Distinguished Alumni will be recognized, hopefully, in the spring of 2021 as we had to postpone this due to the current pandemic. We are excited to continue celebrating our past graduates as a critical part of continuing to grow the Pekin pride for Pekin Community High School and our community. Please consider nominating someone you know for this award.

We are excited to announce this week's winners of the "Flying the P" award are the PCHS music students who were selected for the All District Ensembles! The students had the challenging task of video recording their auditions in early October and submitting them for judging to be accepted into the ILMEA ensembles. This year PCHS had 13 students selected to these "virtual ensembles". In lieu of meeting in person, these students will take part in virtual master classes and workshops on two weekends in November. Top placements will be selected for the All-State ensembles in January. PCHS had 2 students that were the highest score among all of the jazz auditions, Sarah Arseneau and Savanna Miller. These students put in hours of work, and in these strange times, they showed that hard work pays off! Please help us in congratulating all of these students!

We are excited to announce this week's winners of the "Flying the P" award. This week we are honoring the accomplishments of a few different groups of PCHS students. We start by honoring the members of the JROTC Honor Guard. On September 18 and 24, the cadets performed the Prisoner of War (POW) and Missing in Action (MIA) table ceremony for the local community in Honor of National POW/MIA Recognition Day and the City of East Peoria's hosting of the Traveling Vietnam War Memorial. The Vietnam Wall Traveling Memorial stands as a reminder of the great sacrifices made during the Vietnam War. For those of you who have seen the ceremony, it offers remembrance, hope, healing and comfort for the many families of American’s whose loved one never came home from conflicts in foreign lands. The Pekin Community High School Army JROTC Honor Guard is committed even during this global pandemic, to the continued performance of this solemn ceremony in honor of all those men and women who have served their country. Cadet Alexis Falco-Creech Cadet Braden Dawson Cadet Lucas King Cadet Autumn Moch (not pictured) Cadet Jacob Plante Cadet Addison Ray Cadet Tyler Revelle Cadet JaLynn Riley Next, we will be honoring two members of the varsity girls golf team. These two young ladies both qualified as individuals for the IHSA sectional that was held at the University of Illinois last week. The two varsity girls golf members are: Sydney Hubner Lauren Minkel We also honor the members of the boys varsity golf team. These young men had an amazing season going undefeated in regular season matches, winning the Mid-Illini Conference championship, the IHSA Regionals, and qualifying for the IHSA Sectionals where they placed 4th. Members of the varsity boys golf team include: Adam Cash Brady Gruden (not pictured) Mason Minkel Tyler Picken Luke Riggenbach Carter Stevenson (not pictured) Cooper Theleritis (not pictured) Dawson Woll

The Counselor's Hallway received a major facelift this summer! Take a walk down PCHS history as murals created by Deverman Advertising and produced/installed by PIP Printing reflect years of history. This Touch-Pro system not only allowed us to upload all of our Departmental Award Winners from the past 20 years, our state champions in sports, and our Distinguished Alumni as well as Master Dragon staff members, it has also given us the ability to upload digital copies of almost all of our yearbooks since 1908!!! And, the greatest part about this "fancy TV" is that the platform of all of this information is also available to everyone, not just those who stand in front of the device. The link to all of this historical information can be found on the PCHS webpage at pekinhigh.net under the Menu Tab of Dragon History. Here is a direct link as well: http://pekinhigh.touchpros.com/Home2.aspx Thank you to all who contributed pictures and who will walk down memory lane with us!

PCHS athletics is happy to announce that beginning on Monday, June 15 we will begin our Phase 1 Reopening Plan for athletics. This will allow some of our athletic programs to begin their summer conditioning programs. All athletes, parents, and guardians should take the time to review our Phase 1 Plan. Currently, the programs which will start on June 15 are football and cross country (boys and girls). If you are interested in participating, please contact your head coach or the athletic office. We are extremely excited to have our Dragons back on campus. It will take some time to get back to normal, but with everyone following the guidelines in Phase 1, we are confident that we will get there sooner rather than later. https://5il.co/h4s6

Although we were holding out hope, we are unfortunately going to have to cancel Prom 2020. As we are currently in Phase 3 with the potential of entering Phase 4 in late June/ early July, we would still be unable to host hundreds of students in one location. In addition, with it being a dance, we would be unable to follow social distancing guidelines. Graduation is still on for July 24th, with a rain date of July 25th. We will continue to be in communication regarding the specifics of the graduation ceremony.

PCHS is in the process of planning for summer projects. For one of those projects, we are looking for great pictures that people may have of PCHS throughout the years that represent various academic and extracurricular groups and/or activities. We are creating a collage of pictures that will be part of a large graphic used in one of our main hallways. Since most of us are currently stuck at home, what better way to pass the time than to go through old photos/negatives for, what could be, great contributions to this project. If you have any original photos/negatives (not cell phone/social media pictures) that you feel you would be willing to share, you can send those to Danielle Owens, 320 Stadium Drive, Pekin, IL 61554. Please make sure to include your name and return address as we will send them back to you once we are finished with them. We are hoping to include photos throughout the history of PCHS. Thank you for your help in making this project a reality!

PCHS is in the process of planning for summer projects. For one of those projects, we are looking for great pictures that people may have of PCHS throughout the years that represent various academic and extracurricular groups and/or activities. We are creating a collage of pictures that will be part of a large graphic used in one of our main hallways. Since most of us are currently stuck at home, what better way to pass the time than to go through old photos/negatives for, what could be, great contributions to this project. If you have any original photos/negatives (not cell phone/social media pictures) that you feel you would be willing to share, you can send those to Danielle Owens, 320 Stadium Drive, Pekin, IL 61554. Please make sure to include your name and return address as we will send them back to you once we are finished with them. We are hoping to include photos throughout the history of PCHS. Thank you for your help in making this project a reality!

We ask that you show your support by turning on an outside light at your home for these 20 minutes. Take a picture of you and your family lighting up the night and share it on social media with the hashtag #DragonsLightTheNight Pictures and video footage of the stadium, including a live stream on Facebook Live, will be taken and posted on our social media platforms.

Took some time today to feed all of those who are working in the building - it’s a small crew but grateful for the essential help! And, using the time to add some “shine” to the gym floor for when our Dragons return!!!
