In 2014, Piqua City Schools implemented a district-wide program called Rachel’s Challenge. On April 20, 1999, Rachel Joy Scott was the first student killed in the Columbine shootings. Although her life was taken early, her legacy lives on through schools and communities all over the world. The program is designed to maximize student learning by creating a chain reaction of kindness and compassion. The Rachel's Challenge Assembly will be September 18. For students that want to show kindness, embrace diversity, make positive choices, and help those in need, they can be involved in the FOR (Friends of Rachel) Club. Everyone is encouraged to take part in such a wonderful program. To learn more, please visit: http://www.rachelschallenge.org/. If you are interested in joining FOR Club, please contact Mrs. Muhlenkamp at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mrs. Pace at email@example.com.
Senior Service Hours
The purpose of senior service hours is to provide the student and community a shared experience, greater awareness of community harmony, and humanitarian service. Seniors need to complete 6 hours of community service. The service hours may be served any time except during a school day. Vounteer work should be completed by May 15. The forms can be obtained in the main office or school counseling office.
First Semester Schedule Changes
A student may not change their schedule for the first five days of the course. If a student still wants the schedule changed after that time, they will have the next five days of the course to get the necessary paperwork completed and returned to their counselor. See your counselor on August 20 to pick up a schedule change form. All paperwork must be returned to the counselor by August 27. See your counselor immediately if you are missing a class period on your schedule or a core academic class.
