  • Change to High School Schedule

     

    High School Parents and Students only:

    We will be moving our semester tests up a week to 12/7-12/11.  Attendance is mandatory during this week. High school students will be virtual the week of 12/14-12/18 and we will give our state tests that week.  High school students who have state tests will be required to attend, in person, the day that they have tests that week.  We will share the state testing calendar and contact parents of students to let them know what day they will have to attend to test during the virtual week.

    THIS ONLY APPLIES TO HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.

    TPD

    Mr. Allen's Law & Public Safety class recently had the opportunity of visiting the Tupeleo Police Department. Lt. Mask guided PRCTC’s Law and Public Safety students around the department. He gave them a tour and explained how the station is set up and where the officers carry out specific tasks. The students were able to see offices, debriefing rooms, fitness center, as well as meet a member of the SWAT team. Students were shown where officers store their equipment such as bulletproof vests or weapons, when they are not in use. The students were able to explore a department vehicle and learn how the sirens work and where criminals sit when being transported.

  • Welcome to the Real World 

    Pontotoc County Extension Service hosted the "Welcome to the Real World" reality fair for students at the Pontotoc Ridge Career & Technology Center. Each student is given a scenario indicating their occupation, salary, and family situation. Then they take their monthly income and make basic living purchases by visiting each of the booths. At each booth they are to deduct the amount they choose from their monthly income. Here are the names of the booths they visit:
    • Groceries
    • Taxes-monthly withholding
    • Housing - purchase or rent
    • Transportation - type of car they might drive
    • Child Care
    • Communication (cell phone options)
    • Clothing - low or high cost plan
    • Personal Care - haircut, toiletries, etc.
    • Entertainment - cable, fast food, game tickets, movies, restaurants, etc 
    • Supplemental Income - national guard, yard work, babysitting, house cleaning, etc.
    It is an excellent way for students to see what happens to your paycheck in the "real world".
