Thanks to the planning and effort from our extraordinary PIE (Parents Involved in Education) leader, Aubrie Limebrook, today the 8th graders started a new tradition that our 4th graders started 3 years ago! Huge thanks to Davis Parker, PSHS junior, for volunteering his drone piloting expertise for the last 4 years to get a drone shot of each class shaped into the year they will graduate from high school. Such a cool memory-making tradition. And Parker also captured a 5th grade picture since they missed their 4th grade picture last year--not this time COVID, you are not messing up our traditions!
Stay tuned, final pictures to come soon. Principals hang these in the halls of their schools remembering each exiting class. Love the collaboration of this project from dedicated parent volunteer to talented high school student to support our younger students. Go Pirates.
Today the freshman in PSHS's Freshman Seminar class taught by Mrs. White dressed their best and prepared for and participated in mock interviews. The interviews were conducted by High School staff and our district asst. superintendent acting as potential employers asking real-world interview questions. The interview was part of a project that was part of the Career Exploration Unit.
Interviewing is a necessary skill for students to learn how to market their skills and prepare for the job force. The students prepared documents for success by doing the following: a resume, cover letter, job application and references. Great Job Pirates, you are preparing for success.
