We are excited to announce this week's winners of the "Flying the P" award! This week we are honoring our six Dragon Day Assistants/Leaders! These students volunteered their time over summer break to plan Dragon Day 2020 so that, even during a pandemic, the Class of 2024 would be able to have many of the same experiences they had on their very own Dragon Day. Then on Dragon Day 2020, these six students helped lead nearly 100 Dragon Day student volunteers to welcome our newest dragons to PCHS. Please help us in congratulating each of these students for all of their work in making Dragon Day 2020 a huge success!

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.

While we have all experienced unique situations, problems, stresses, and uncertainty at new levels, we have also pulled together to make the best of a bad situation. Whether through learning new ways to connect with students, adjusting to new timetables of building upkeep, adapting to working from home, or becoming experts in Zoom, our diverse experiences have had one commonality: to continue to make PCHS an outstanding place to learn, work, and serve the students and community!

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.

The counseling office wants to continue to celebrate the Class of 2020. These pictures were sent to PCHS from feeder schools. A picture was not sent for every student, so if you have a picture of when you were in elementary school- post the picture in the comments below. We are so proud of how much you have learned and grown- we cannot wait to see where you go next. (Special thanks to Mrs. Coon, the counseling office secretary, for putting this together).

Tonight, along with our brethren from the Mid-Illini Conference as well as many other schools across IL, we will light up Memorial Stadium at 8:20pm (20:20) for 20 minutes to recognize and honor our #DragonSeniors. It will also be a show of support for everyone on the frontlines fighting this crisis. Please remember that in order to comply with state guidelines; the stadium will not be accessible. 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.

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!

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.

We are very excited to announce this week's winners of the "Flying the P" award! 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!

Publications and Graphics students learned lighting and different camera settings today to try to freeze popcorn in the air. If you wanted to try at home, feel free to support your SkillsUSA Pekin team by purchasing Double Good Popcorn. The team will receive 50% of the proceeds. Here's the link to Mrs. Smith's store, but please help support our students. There's a free lunch on the line to the top seller. https://dgood.co/1719243
