2013 Registration Q & A
The combined Drama III/IV class traveled to Pickens Elementary School on May 15 to perform Peggy the Pint-sized Pirate, a short children’s play that shows kids how everyone has something he or she can offer, no matter how big or small. This was the first annual children’s show produced by the Theater Program of Pickens High School. The drama group has one more performance on Saturday May 18 at the Easley Fine Arts Festival at Old Market Square at 10:00a.m.

This is a tremendous honor for Coach Corn personally and professionally. It is also a great recognition of the Athletic Department, the PHS Athletic Association, the PHS coaching staff, and the many student-athletes that Coach Corn serves. Coach Corn has served as PHS AD for 13 years. He and his wife, Sharon, have 3 children and 7 grandchildren and one on the way.

Congratulations to our teachers and students for their commitment to achievement.
The number of classes for Alive at 25 has been greatly reduced. There will be two more classes taught in Pickens County this school year, and both will be at PHS. The two dates are April 9 and May 7. Anyone wanting to take Alive at 25 before school ends should get signed up for one of these two dates. Since all 4 high schools will be sending people to these classes, it is important you sign up in advance and not wait to do a walk in registration since the class will probably be full.
Because we are committed to keeping our students safe behind the wheel, we have implemented a proactive program called Alive at 25 at all School District of Pickens County high schools. Students will not receive parking permits until they have successfully completed the course.
All upcoming classes are listed on the South Carolina Alive at 25 website: www.scaliveat25.org. Students may register online at www.scaliveat25.org or by calling the South Carolina National Safety Council office at 803-732-6778. During the registration process, students should specify the name of their own high schools so certificates can be sent to the proper schools. The staff at PHS cannot register your student for Alive at 25. You must do this through the phone number listed or online.
On Saturday, Feb. 2, eleven PHS students went to Floyd D. Johnson Technology Center in York, SC for the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) District Leadership Conference. Six of those students advanced to State competition, which will be held in Charleston on April 12 – 14, 2013. Students advancing to the State competition are: Casey Stancell, Haley Phillips, Josh Hughes, Beau Jones, Angel Collins, and Andre’ Johannes. It took courage to compete, so everyone who went should have a feeling of accomplishment.
On December 14, 2013 a terrible tragedy struck Newtown, Conn. This tragedy affected not only that small community but our nation as a whole. Dr. Ashley Butler found out that the Newtown community has asked that anyone wishing to honor their families do something for their own local Kindergarten classes.
