Blueberry Parking

For over twenty years, Plymouth High School has partnered with Marshall County Blueberry Festival and the Plymouth Moose to coordinate parking services at the high school's lot.

Parking this year will be Band, Choir, Riverside PTO, Spanish Club, Speech Team, Drama Club, and Broadcasting. For your convenience, weekend parking passes are available at the high school for $10.

Please support Plymouth High School by parking at the high school lot. Reminder - this is the only lot that provides tram passes in and out of the park.

Lincoln 1:1 Computer Program Rollout

Tomorrow, September 1, 2010, Lincoln Junior High School will have the rollout of our 1:1 Computer Program.

LJH has leased notebook computers from Apple so that every student will have access to a computer at school. We believe the program will engage students and help to prepare them for the future.

Students will not be taking the computers home at first, but we hope to make that possible before the school year is over.

How To Save A Tree

At least twice a week, and maybe more, we get fliers from community groups that give valuable information for parents and students in our schools.

This year, we will continue to pass that information on to our students and parents, but we will now do that digitally. On the home page of the PCSC web site, there is a box entitled, “Information Center”.

Please visit this site every Friday to see all the creative, industrious, and valuable programs and opportunities our community offers.
