September 12, 2018

Today is Wednesday, September 12th, and it is an A Day.

Homecoming Week is next week September 17th-September 21st. The theme of Homecoming Week is: ‘Forever Yonge.’ The idea is to always be a kid at heart.

Get ready to show your school spirit all week by dressing up for the following Dress up Days:

      • Monday-Character Day Monday (Dress up as your favorite TV, Movie, or Book character)
      • Tuesday-Twin Tuesday (Imitate another person’s clothing)
      • Wednesday- Decades Day Wednesday (Dress up in the clothing of a famous decade like the 50s, 60s, 70s, etc.)
      • Thursday- Spirit Day Thursday (Show your Blue Wave Spirit)

The three best dressed students each day will win Chick-fil-A lunch for a day. To participate you must show up in front of the cafeteria by 8AM each morning during Homecoming Week dressed to fit the theme. The results will be announced each afternoon.

The entire student body will also vote for the best dressed teacher each day. To vote go to the Student Government Twitter account and click on the link.

Also get ready for Dime Wars. The  grade level who raises the most money for DimeWars will have a pizza party for everyone in the grade in both middle and high school.

FROM OFFICER SAVONA:  I just wanted to remind everyone not to leave your backpacks unattended. I have been finding them lying around the gym area and cafeteria areas. In addition to the backpacks, Chromebooks and cell phones have been an issue. These items are valuables and are expensive to replace. Please be responsible for your valuables and treat them like you are at the airport — always being in your  possession or sight of your bags and valuables.

Please everyone get your parking decals. There are still many of you who do not have them. This is for accountability and helps with access control so that we know if you are affiliated to PKY. I am starting to write tag numbers down and will begin to find out who does not have a parking decal. Those who do not have a parking decal will not be allowed to park in the student south lot and will be instructed to park in the far north dirt parking lot.

Remember PKY students, I need your help to keep this campus and everyone on it safe. What that means is if you “See Something, Please Say Something”. We are here to have fun but remember your number one job as a student is to learn as much as you can to prepare you for the next level. Set goals and put in an effort to reach those goals.


Middle School Students interested in playing soccer should sign up at at a link on Ms. Brown’s, Mrs. Flakes, or Mrs. Sheppard’s class pages

See Mr. De Leon if you have questions.  link:

The Powder Puff game will be on Tuesday, Sept. 18th at 1:30pm on the PKY football field. Tickets will be sold at the cafeteria at middle school and high school lunch for $2.00.  Show your ticket to your 3rd period teacher on Tuesday to attend the game.
