With prom being this Saturday, the High School SADD Club, Officer Masci and the Perry Police Department, the PHS Counseling Department, and local law enforcement and emergency response agencies have teamed up to educate high school students, specifically juniors and seniors, about the dangers and consequences of distracted and impaired driving. Today’s activity includes a visit from the International Save a Life Tour. With a majority of crashes being caused by drivers being distracted behind the wheel, it’s important that young adults understand that one text or a couple of seconds with their eyes off the road can have a lasting impact on many lives. As part of the Save a Life Tour, students are using hands-on distracted driving and impaired driving virtual reality simulators. #PrideInTheHive
It was hard not to tear up during this morning's Grad Walk with the Class of 2023 and our UPK graduates. We can't help it. Watching our seniors come full-circle, marching through the hallways they once ran through as children, and knowing that the UPK students they were holding hands with would one day be in their shoes, was just too much! #PrideInTheHive

The PCS Music Program continues it's impressive run by adding New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) awards to its list of accolades! Mr. Levano and the Jr. High Band, along with Mr. Hirsch and the Sr. High Band, performed at the NYSSMA Major Organization Festival this week at Rush-Henrietta HS. The Sr. High Band earned a Gold (Level 3) Award, which is awarded to organizations that demonstrated an outstanding level of technical and artistic skills with minimal weaknesses. The Jr. High Band earned a Bronze (Level 2) Award for demonstrating a basic level of technical and artistic skill. We believe these NYSSMA awards are a first for PCS! Kudos to our student-musicians and conductors! #PrideInTheHive
