Upcoming Events

3rd Annual Riley Dance Marathon, Saturday, May 6th from 4-10 p.m.

With your help, our Student government was able to shatter both their attendance and donation goals last year with 193 students in attendance and a final donation total of $16,408.  We were named one of the fastest growing Dance marathons in the state with a 53% increase in just one year.  However, they greatly need your support this year.

The PCHS Student Government would ask you to consider donating to this very worth cause.  Not only will you be helping to fund the Wells Center for Pediatric Research at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis but you are also showing our students that you support their endeavors.  All donations are tax deductible and can be made directly through the link provided below.

Nominations are now being accepted for the Petersburg Press-Dispatch and IP&L "Pike County Schools Distinguished Alumni Award" and "Teacher of the Year".  Deadline for nominations are May 9, 2017.  Please click the links for each award to download the nomination form.
Parents will now be able to check the balances and history of their child's lunch accounts.  Parents will also be able to make payments but there is a fee involved.  The fee cost will be shared later.  Go to
www.myschoolbucks.com.  Literature is available in the Cafeteria for PCHS and PCMS students.  It does not cost anything to create an account and check lunch balances.  Parents are more than welcome to go ahead and create an account.
Reminder all athletes must have a current physical and all paperwork on Family ID on file before participation is allowed.

**Attention Parents:  Gifts & Parties:
Any food items sent to school for classroom celebrations or extended after school functions pertaining to students, must be commercially prepared and packaged with a list of ingredients and nutritional value on the label.  This is for the safety of those with food allergies and for diabetic calculations.

If a student participates in after school programs where snacks may be involved in, it will be the parent's responsibility to notify those in charge of the programs of any student allergies or food limitations.

Healthy, nutritious snacks are encouraged.

No latex balloon deliveries will be accepted.
