In honor of CTE month (February), PCPS would like to highlight the CTE teachers throughout our division! In each highlight, you will learn about the courses they teach, their years of experience in and out of the classroom, what drew them to teaching and the cool projects their CTE classes are completing! To them, we say "thank you" for all that you do each day to bring Career and Technical Education alive for our students!

The business departments' success as a whole on the W!SE, ParaPro, and MOS certification tests.
Cutest Pet Contest - Business Department/FBLA sponsored this contest. The members and PCHS staff submitted pictures of their pets and then the entire school voted with their change for the "cutest" put. All proceeds went to help Bentley Farm Great Dane Rescue.
FBLA Page One Food Drive - Seminar/Study Hall classes collected food during FBLA week.
Food was then delivered on Friday of FBLA week and members helped in the pantry for about 1/2 hour.
