Please add Academy Day 2022 to your calendar. Last year, approx. 16 students from various WV counties (Berkeley Co., Cabell Co., Greenbrier Co., Harrison Co., Jefferson Co., Kanawha Co., Mercer Co., Mingo Co., Monongalia Co., Preston Co., Putnam Co., etc.) accepted appointments to attend U.S. service academies and prep schools! One key to a student’s success (besides academic, physical, and extracurricular achievements) is being informed about potential opportunities at these educational institutions and starting the information gathering process as early as possible. An appointment to a U.S. Service Academy is a fully funded education opportunity valued from $240,000 to more than $400,000. Academy Day 2022 will be held for any and all students, parents and school officials interested in learning more about U.S. service academies (Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines, Military/West Point, Naval). We will also have representatives from local ROTC programs on hand to discuss ROTC scholarship opportunities and a representative from the Dept. of Defense’s Medical Examination Review Board will join us on Saturday, September 24, 2022 and Sunday, September 25, 2022. Academy Day is an opportunity for students, parents, and school officials to ask questions and obtain information regarding the U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy as well as the ROTC scholarship process. No Registration Required. Students who want to attend a prestigious U.S. Service Academy are generally more successful when they begin planning courses and extracurricular activities early in their academic career. Please attend. Representatives will be ready to answer questions regarding the educational, physical and recreational requirements to attend these prestigious institutions or obtain an ROTC scholarship as well as address the nomination process. I have attached a flyer regarding Academy Day 2022.

Academy Day 2022
This announcement is for Pleasant Hill students, parents, and staff. We are excited to announce that Kelly Paving will be at Pleasant Hill School on Wednesday, August 31, to finish paving the parking lot. They will start after the students arrive and hopefully end before the students are released. Staff will need to park at Pleasant Hill Church on Wednesday. I know this is a minor inconvenience, but it will be worth it once the paving is completed. Thank you for your understanding. If any student needs to be picked up during the day Wednesday, the parents will need to call the school so someone can walk the student to the road. Thanks,

Calhoun County Schools would like to thank Michael Fitzwater, Richard Parsons, JP Posey, Rusty Richards, Jim Helmick, and Brent Anderson for their hard work on the new sidewalk at PHE. They worked in the hot and humid weather to get the new sidewalk completed. The next step is the parking lot paving that will take place soon. Please continue to be patient with us as we finish up this project. Mother nature has not been kind with all the rain.
