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

Last night's match up between our varsity softball team and Letchworth was so much more than a game. The two teams partnered to strikeout cancer and show support to those affected by this horrible disease. Both teams selected special guests to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, including Kris Adolf, PES art teacher. Even though PCS walked away with a loss, it was an incredible evening. When it comes to striking out cancer, we're all on the same team! #PrideInTheHive

What makes a good teammate? What type of character do you look for in a friend? Student-athletes from SUNY Geneseo visited PCS today to discuss the importance of empathy, teamwork, camaraderie, and kindness with Jr. High students. The small group setting provided a comfortable environment for students to share their thoughts and feelings, as well as ask the guests questions about college life and playing sports at the collegiate level. After the small group sessions, students moved into the gym for fun team-building activities. #PrideInTheHive

The PCS Trap Club members are halfway through the season and have had to battle some wild weather for most of it. This week they witnessed a beautiful rainbow while preparing to shoot a round in the rain. If you'd like to watch the members shoot, head out to the Mt. Morris Sportsmans Club on Monday nights at 6 pm for the next three weeks. #PrideInTheHive (Thanks to Mrs. Marti for the photos).

Yesterday, several of our student-athletes and Mr. Wyant, 7-12 Assistant Principal/Athletic Director, attended the Student-Athlete Leadership Training, which was organized by Section V. Sophomores Bri Ohlson and Holden Kelly had the opportunity to attend, while juniors Bryce Tallman, Zac Narowski, and Courtney Westfall helped plan the event as members of the Section V Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Mr. Wyant served as guest speaker at the event, discussing work/life balance with attendees. The discussion led to ways student-athletes can best manage time and find balance in their lives. What a great group to represent PCS! #PrideInTheHive
