  4. We need costumes, etc. Please see what you have to let us borrow.
  5. Float construction will take place at the Nill’s residence this year.
    • We will let you know when this begins.
    • At times, the Powell’s residence may also be used.
    • They are down the road from each other. Those involved will be informed where to be.
  6. Food, snack, water is needed for our planning nights and work days. Volunteers please reach out to Meg Kinney,
  7. PTSA need parents to volunteer for Homecoming. Please see the links they have sent out.

* Note to parents: I am strongly persuading every member of the class to be involved in some aspect of Homecoming and other events throughout the year. They are notified numerous ways. As Juniors, the responsibility to attend falls on them. Please know, that some students just don’t want to take part very actively. That is ok. Our school and community offer plenty of other opportunities for your child. There is also so much that takes place with our class activities which happens quietly behind the scenes. Your child can let me know if that is what they prefer.

Dear Students and Parents of the Class of 2020,

Welcome back to a new year! It seems like just yesterday this group of students was beginning 6th grade. Now, they are entering their Junior year. It is an honor to be a part of this important year with them as their advisor, a journey I hope to travel along through graduation.

It is exciting to have Homecoming be a few weeks early. This year PTSA has it scheduled for Friday, September 21st and Saturday, September 22nd. I hope many of you parents and students are able to attend the PTSA homecoming meeting begin held on Thursday, September 6th in the Library from 7:45 pm - 9 pm. It would be great for the Junior class to have some representation. I plan to be there.

The next 3 weeks will be a whirlwind: start-of-school, readjusting schedules and preparing for Homecoming. Therefore, Junior Class Officer elections will be postponed until after Homecoming. During this time I will send out information regarding running for office. In the meantime, Kathryn, Yanni, Halle and Ruby will continue on as our officers. We look forward to everyone’s involvement during the Homecoming preparations. There are roles to suit all of the different areas of talent this class possess. The important thing is to find a comfortable way to be a part of the class, all of you matter and we want you each to have a voice in and be a part of your class.

A brief class meeting will be held during Academic Support on Friday, September 7th in the Auditorium. I expect everyone to attend. A reminder will be on the PM Announcements.

PTSA and the school have worked out to Homecoming Planning dates: Friday, September 7th and 14th from 6:30-8:30 pm.This gives us two solid amounts of time to get work done. The Junior class is scheduled for the HS gymnasium. This is for parents and students.

There are a number of ways for students and parents to stay connected to class news. For those of you on Facebook, please join my PIERSON’S CLASS OF 2020 ADVISOR’S PAGE, this is a closed group. My school website has a class page. There is an Information Board in the doorway of my classroom. Students should check this often. Currently there are sign-up sheets for Homecoming. And, of course, school daily announcements. It is important for students to always pay attention when those are read.

Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns or ideas. Fundraisers will begin soon, You will all be updated once we have more specific Homecoming information. Thank you, in advance, for the support I know I will get for all of you this year.

Homecoming is coming, September 21st-22nd. Mark your calendars now so you don’t have conflicts. We only get one chance at Junior year homecoming. We had strong finishes the last two years. Let’s show our Pierson Pride. I am hoping for 100% class participation. Nothing will be to little or too much. Just take part in your class and school community in some way. Every one of the students is an important part of 2020. And every experience you take part in helps to prepare you for your future. So grab hold of Homecoming 2018 and let’s all enjoy it together.


I am more than excited to announce that I will be the Class of 2020's advisor for their Junior and Senior year. Can't wait to continue this journey through high school with them.
