Good Morning PGHS,

PGHS Counseling Department wanted to let everyone know that as deadlines draw near for College applications, please notify your school counselor. Please make sure all required forms have been submitted and signed off. Your counselor will need the Transcript Release Form and the College Recommendation Letter Questionnaire filled out and returned to mail or upload any transcripts or college letters. You can stop by Counseling to pick up or we can email you a copy!

Any college deadlines after December 18th to January 3rd, please notify your school counselor no later than December 14th before Winter Break! During Winter Break, all school counselors will be home for the holidays and not available to submit any college packets!!

PGHS is administering the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) on 01 and 02 December 2020 in PGHS Auditorium (Lecture Halls A & B). Click on the link in the comments below to sign up for it.
Taking this test DOES NOT commit you to any sort of military obligation. It does provide you options, after high school, to pursue a career path that combines education, training, and employment (work experience) with additional tuition assistance available for college and an opportunity to serve in the military.
***The test will be administered at 8:30am on 01 and 02 December.
***Students aged 16 or older are allowed to take the ASVAB; not just Juniors & Seniors.
***Please check with your teachers to see which day works best for you, so you don't miss a significant summative assignment or test.



U.S. Army Recruiters in Richmond, Virginia are hosting a virtual STEM Career Exploration Event on December 2, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. to educate interested individuals about STEM opportunities and full-time and part-time careers available in 150 different specialties.

This event will feature live streamed presentations from Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), Transportation, Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic, Track Vehicle Repairer, Military Police Working Dog Team, Joint Culinary Training, 128th Aviation Brigade and VCU Reserve Officer Training Corps.
