We would love for every senior to receive a yearbook this spring! We had a tremendous response the last time we offered the option of donating to those students who are unable to purchase their own yearbook. Currently, we have approximately 100 seniors who have not been able to order a yearbook. DONORS: Once on the Jostens website, find Pickens High School (SC) and order a yearbook. In the "Student Information" fields, please select SENIOR for first name and DONATION for last name. If you would like to designate your yearbook donation for a particular student, please email Dr. Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Junior students interested in taking dual enrollment classes during their senior year are encouraged to attend the Tri-County Technical College Orientation session on Tuesday, March 1 at 6:00 in the auditorium. Orientation sessions are mandatory so if you miss this meeting, you will need to make plans to attend a make-up session at a later time. Representatives from the university transfer program and the technical career pathways such as HVAC, Welding and Mechatronics will be here to answer questions about the enrollment process.
