Good morning! Today is Monday, May 10th and it is N day.  I hope you wore a necktie, necklace, or neon colors! .  Tomorrow is M day — Wear a mustache, mismatched clothes or dress like a mermaid.  The entire Z-A Countdown can be found on the website under the Announcements tab.

Thank you to Mr. Moody, Mrs. Koppitch, the Junior Class officers, and the PKY Administration for a wonderful prom on Saturday night!  Thank you for making the evening memorable for everyone who attended.

Reminder that students wishing to take a virtual course as a period in their schedule during the school day next year, must have a signed and completed PKY virtual contract returned to Mr. Chambliss or Mrs. Theiss by TODAY.  Classes taken outside of the school day do not require a contract.  Please reach out to them if you have questions.
