On May 22nd, we will be hosting our student-athletes in the Wilson Gym at tutor time to celebrate their accomplishment of continuing their athletic careers at the collegiate level. Parents and community members, please join us in this celebration.

One in three PPS students, grade 6-12, participate in PIL athletic programming. Over the past five years, the PIL has grown from providing opportunities for 5,500 student-athletes to providing opportunities for over 13,000 student-athletes. The largest growth areas have been the increased participation of female student athletes and increased opportunities for lower income students as we seek to decrease the inequities that exist.
