    Parents and Guardians:

    Spring Break is here!

    The countdown is on to finish your FAFSA.  Finish by March 15 for free Austin Spurs tickets for a senior and a guest on April 1, 2017.  Finish your FAFSA by March 31 for a chance to win a free yearbook, free prom tickets, VIP graduation seating for your family and friends or a new Dell laptop!  A list of seniors that have submitted the FAFSA as of today is posted outside of the College and Career Center.  What more incentive do you need?  

    The varsity winter guard placed 4th this past weekend at the WGI Austin Regional and the JV Winter Guard placed 1st at the TCGC Leander Festival!  Way to go Guard!!!!  Both of these groups are ranked in the top 5 in the state and the varsity group is ranked in the top 5 in the nation.

    Finally, I would like to say a few words about our girls basketball team.  Throughout the year, I watched them grow as a team and mature as young ladies.  Although the goal of winning a State Championship eluded them, the pride in watching them represent PHS and the Pflugerville community as a whole was overwhelming for me.  These 15 young ladies did an outstanding job this year.  The three seniors will graduate and become fine ladies and productive citizens.  The lessons they learned this year will carry them through thick and thin during their lives.  They will look back on their accomplishments with great pride, as well.  As for the 12 girls who will be returning, we wish them the best in their quest for that very elusive State Title!

    Out of soap!  Until after Spring Break...

    Kirk Wrinkle
