CC@PCS! Tuesday Edition V.1, E. 28 – 4/25/2023

Happy Tuesday, Bobcats! We’re almost across the 2022-2023 school year finish line!

Things are BUSY this time of year, so color coding is here for you!

But before we get down to business, I’d like to share (for those who have not heard) that the Valedictorian for the Class of 2023 is Owen Massey! The Salutatorian is Travis Ashley! Both of these guys have cumulative averages of OVER 100, and we are extremely proud and excited to share this accomplishment with our community. A formal press release will follow this week, and the gentleman will represent our school at WDAM’s Top of the Class Celebration tomorrow at Jones College. Nicely done!

Now on to business:
