It may be summer break but that doesn’t mean our students have to stop learning. Through the ARP-ESSER grant, we have the opportunity to offer students enrichment classes again this summer. Courses range from math to creative writing to life skills. Over the next several weeks, students will not only be learning, but having fun! #PrideInTheHive

Several 8th graders are joining Mrs. Kettle, JH counselor, and Sabrina Wright, a prevention supervisor for Wyoming County Partners for Prevention, this morning for Project Sticker Shock. PCS students and others from around the county are visiting local stores to place awareness stickers on alcoholic beverages. Unfortunately, with proms, graduation parties, and free time, the summer months are popular for underage drinking. The stickers are meant to serve as reminders to consumers that they can help prevent underage drinking by not purchasing or providing alcoholic drinks to minors. #PrideInTheHive

Senior Zac Narowski is a prime example of what students can achieve when they take advantage of all that is offered them at PCSD. While enrolled in the Accelerated Enrollment Program at Genesee Community College, Zac earned 96 college credits while still in high school. A couple weeks ago, Zac put on his cap and gown to receive his associate degree in Natural Sciences during GCC’s commencement ceremony. This senior is a college graduate before he even finishes high school. What an incredible achievement. Congratulations, Zac! #PrideInTheHive #ClassOf2024

Last week, Partners for Prevention hosted its annual Coalition Meeting for local Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) chapters and Perry Stand Up Club. Mrs. Mehlenbacher and Ms. Smith attended with students from both organizations. Each group shared the various programs and volunteer activities they've completed this school year. They also helped prepare Deterra Drug Deactivation and Disposal packs, which will be mailed to county residents for the safe disposal of prescription drugs. The meeting culminated with a pizza party. We're proud of both these student-led groups on educating, advocating, and volunteering throughout this school year! #PrideInTheHive
