Happy March, Bobcats! March means it’s time to start preparing for next year!
What does that mean for YOU?
If you are a Sophomore or a Junior, please schedule a College & Course Planning Meeting ASAP! We will go over credits and make sure you are on track for graduation! We’ll also go over the requirements for the SCOIR platform for managing your college application process. I hope to meet/see each and every one of you over the next two months. Please try to schedule these meetings during study halls, elective periods, lunch, or breaks. You should not be missing a core class to meet with me (Parents are welcome to attend). Please schedule your meetings HERE: https://calendly.com/et-cc-pcs/30min?month=2022-08

Please don’t forget! Our local food pantries need Peanut Butter! This year, PCS is an official collection site for Extra Table’s March of the Mayors! The official food of Hattiesburg is 16 oz jars of peanut butter! Please consider donating to stock our local food pantries. Drop peanut butter off in the main office!
Beta members: if you would like hours for your donations (3 16 oz jars = 1 hour), deliver your peanut butter to Ms. Robertson’s room with your name attached!
PCS will send two representatives to the Packing Party & Parade to the Pantries at the end of the month to deliver our contributions with the mayor! Let’s do this Bobcat style and outgive all the other schools! See details attached.
