A reminder to ALL students...you MUST sign in and out at the office if you are late or leaving early during the day.  The office must have written permission or a phone call from the parent or guardian or the student will not be allowed to leave.  Students need to talk to Christy before checking out.

Juniors and Seniors:  Please turn in your Pekin Community Scholarship tickets and money for the tickets that you sold by Friday, September 3rd.  This will affect your scholarship points/amounts if you choose to not turn in the tickets or the money for them.  You will earn more points, which turns into more money on your scholarship amount, if you turn in the money for your tickets.  You will lose points, which results in less money on your scholarship, if neither the tickets or the money for them are turned in.  If you turn in your tickets and no money, you will not gain points but will not lose points towards your scholarship amount.  There were two students that turned their tickets in to Christy and did not have their name on them, if this was you - please check with Christy to make sure that she recorded that you returned your tickets.
