Today is Wednesday, August 14th, and it is a B Day. You will attend periods 4, 5, & 6.

Successful P. K. Yonge students are Responsible, Respectful, Resilient, and Ready.  Practice the 4Rs today and every day!

Students who plan to park on campus, need to purchase a parking decal from the business office during the first two weeks of school.  Student parking is located in front of the gym. If there are no parking spaces in front of the gym, overflow parking for students is in the gravel lot at the north end of campus by the business office.  Only park in real parking spaces; do not park in spaces that are marked off with cones, on the curbs, or grassy areas. Students who park illegally or inappropriately can be ticketed.

Speaking of driving…
If you are interested in taking Driver’s Education,  Registration for night school driver education is now open. Please call Scott Pritchett at 955-6959  to sign up. Classes begin on 8/22. All pertinent information can be found on the School Board of Alachua County website.

This year our campus closes at 4 PM.  Families have been made aware of this through multiple emails and Skyward communications. For middle school students, there are three options at the end of the day: Leave campus by 2:45, report to Blue Wave afterschool or report to Blue Wave study hall. For High School students, there are two options: Leave campus by 2:45 or report to the cafeteria for study hall.  Study hall closes at 4 PM, at which time all students should be off campus unless involved in a faculty-sponsored extracurricular activity. Please make sure you are where you need to be as a responsible P. K. student.

Auditions for the fall play, GAME OF TIARAS, will be Thursday August 22! Scripts, audition materials, and the audition sign-up sheet are available in the Theatre room in the PAC.

Thespian Club will have their first meeting TOMORROW August 15th during high school lunch. Please meet in the Theatre room at 12:35. Want to go to District or State Thespian Conference?  Come to this important meeting to learn how to be part of our PKY Thespian Troupe.

Are you interested in being in a Rock Band?  Do you play guitar, or drums? Want to learn more?  Come talk to Mrs. Burg about joining our Instrumental Ensemble class, lovingly known as ROCK BAND.  It takes place during 4th period and you must be a high school student. We have a couple spots still open.  See Mrs. Burg in the Band room if you are interested!

Did you know that we have an Orchestra Class at P.K. this year?  No kidding! It’s open to middle school AND high school students.   If you have some experience on a stringed instrument, we would love to have you.  If you don’t have any experience–you are in luck; Mrs. Burg will teach you! She’ll even help you obtain an instrument, and she’ll teach you everything that you need to know.  The class is scheduled for 1st period. Come see Mrs. Burg in the band room if you would like to join us.

One more… If you are a middle school student and interested in joining the band, we have a spot for you, too.  No experience required! If you already play something, that’s great; we would love to have you too. Come see Mrs. Burg in the band room for more details, or to sign up!  Don’t miss out on being a part of the most awesome class at PK!
