 UIL Spectator Expectations:

  • For those of you who are attending or planning to attend UIL athletic events please review the attached Behavior Expectations of Spectators provided by the UIL.
  • Key highlights:
    • Be a positive role model at events through your own actions and by censuring those around you whose behavior is unbecoming.
    • Parents and spectators should be aware that the school can (and should) remove them from the premises and can prohibit them from attending future contests due to undesirable behaviors.  

Joint Pike PTA:

  • Looking for ways to get involved at Pike?  Look no further.... join our wonderful Pike PTA!
  • So far our Pike PTA has helped with Wednesday morning duty,  created positive message boards throughout the school, running concession stands for volleyball and our fall dance as well as  planning a Pike community Fall Fest event in October!
  • Members will be on hand during Open House this Thursday September 22nd if you have any questions.
