  • Faculty & Students: Longhorn Steakhouse of Cleveland has graciously invited Mrs. Moats' Special Services class to participate in a School to Work program. Students are learning valuable skills and training that will prepare them to join the workforce upon their graduation. Please help Mrs. Moats and show our appreciation for this opportunity by saying "thanks" to their staff when we dine at the Longhorn, and if you haven't been there, lets give them some business and help them continue to support PCHS students.

  • A note and a phone call are required for check outs on Friday.
