Please remember to join us at the End of the Year Orchestra Banquet!

Canyon Creek Country Club

Attire is dressy casual to semi-formal attire, whichever is most comfortable for you.  Dinner will be served at 7:00PM with awards starting by 7:15PM so don’t be late!  Seniors cords and Pass Downs will follow the Director Awards.  The rest of the night will be open for socializing and dancing to our live band Shoot Low Sheriff with some dance instruction from Pearce’s own Stampede Officers.

See you there!

School Owned Instruments

Attention all students,

If you use a school instrument (either at home, school or both) it must be formally checked in no later than this Friday, May 29 (even if you intend to use it over the summer).

For those wanting to check out an instrument over the summer, we will reissue them during your exam time.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this.


VERY IMPORTANT NOTE RE:  Formal Concert on Thursday, May 21

The students will be required to wear their formal attire (uniform) and to bring an extra change of clothes.  After the performance, the students will change out of their uniforms and turn them back in to the Fine Arts Dept.  Sarah Myers and Helen Karuba will be on hand to receive the uniforms, including the suite bags that were assigned to the uniforms.


Don’t forget to print the attached order form and make your dinner selections.  Forms and payments are due to Mrs. Livings by Wednesday, May 20.  Checks made out to PAOC.



The end of this school year means another school year is sure to follow.  And with another school year comes…………The Mum Store!!!

The Mum Store has started up again in preparation for the fall.  If you are available to help cut ribbon and count cut pieces of ribbon, then the Mum Store is where you want to be!  Please fill out your time in the Mum Store Volunteer book, as these little tasks turn  into big dollars for orchestra!
