At Pinckney Community High School, we are working to achieve the Pinckney Community Schools mission through excellence in the seven A’s: Academics, Attitude, Actions, Arts, Athletics, Acts of Service, and Activities. This initiative is called Renaissance. Renaissance is a national program that celebrates and recognizes student achievement, honors teacher and staff (staffulty) efforts, and encourages the community to get involved. Statistics across the nation show an increase in student and “staffulty” productivity and motivation, student graduation rates and additional family and community involvement through the Renaissance program.

Throughout the 2015-2016 school year, Renaissance plans on doing a lot of wonderful things for students, staffulty, and parents. Our goal is to reward the efforts of the seven different A’s listed above throughout the school year.

Here are just a few examples of things we have done so far this year:

Staffulty wrote each student a welcome back sign for his/her locker.

Staffulty made a welcome back banner that was signed by the entire staff and hung it in the commons for the students.

The marching band played the fight song on the opening day of school as students walked in.

Every Monday morning staffulty lines up at the doors to welcome students back from the weekend. Some weeks the students are also welcomed with a treat to start their day.

Two of our students made yard signs for the beginning of the school year. As parents, staffulty, and students drove in to the campus they were greeted with signs that said “We’re Glad to Have You Back”, “Welcome to the World’s Greatest High School”, and “Make this Your Best Year Ever!”.

Every Friday, an administrator starts with an area of the school. They go from class to class looking for the first class that meets the following “H.A.T.” criteria:

H – Homework. Everyone in the class has their homework turned in.

A – Attendance. Everyone is in attendance for the hour.

T – Tardies. No one was tardy to class.

The first class to meet all of this criteria is awarded with a treat. These treats are donated by the following local businesses: Panera (Brighton), Little Caesars Pizza (Pinckney), and Wendy’s (Pinckney).

Staffulty and students at PCHS would love to have your help and support through your time, or with a monetary donation of any size, gift cards, gasoline cards, or merchandise is welcome and greatly appreciated.

If you would like to know more about what Renaissance is doing at PCHS, please do not hesitate to call for details. We look forward to partnering with you!
