Attention students! The College Information and Readiness Club is holding a contest for all you Valentine’s Day lovers! To enter, you must write a love letter to anything or person and give it to Ms. Bryen by Thursday. The club will judge based on 4 categories: funniest, most romantic, best overall, and most unique. The winner of each category will be awarded with one of four amazing prizes, which includes free pizza. Interested? Then get creative!

Attention high school students: PK Yonge will be competing at the annual Chemathon competition at the University of Florida this coming April. The competition includes a written test, a “Quiz Bowl” style competition against other schools, tours of chemistry research labs at UF, and an exciting chemistry demonstration at the end of the day. Any student in grades 10-12 who has already taken or is currently taking chemistry and is interested in participating should attend the interest meeting in Mr. McCrea’s room O-361 during high school lunch on Wednesday, February 13th. If you are unable to attend, but would still like to participate, please let Mr. McCrea know by the end of the week.

A reminder that vaping and juuling are strictly prohibited on campus and at all school-sponsored events. One teaspoon of juul juice can be fatal to a small child, and we have very young children on our K-12 campus.  What you may think of as harmless fun is extremely dangerous. Putting other students at risk — especially our youngest PKY family members — will not be tolerated. Engaging in juuling, or being in possession of the paraphernalia, could result in serious punishment, up to expulsion from P. K. Yonge.
