Co-Curricular Activities, Clubs, and Athletics
A no-cut policy for participation results in a large percentage of students experiencing activities outside of the classroom. Our athletic programs are consistently competitive at the district and state level. 10% to 15% percent of PLS graduates go on to compete in athletics at the college level. Everyone can participate.

Yearbook Includes the Whole School Community
Under the supervision of a faculty member, students work together to produce a high school yearbook. Preparation of the yearbook is offered as an elective course or club. Each student receives a yearbook.
The PLS Student Government was created by the PLS high school administration for the purpose of leadership and service. Powers granted to the government include:
- The power to create and coordinate committees to promote student activities and citizenship among the student body.
- The power to conduct elections for Executive Officers and any other election deemed necessary
- The power to carry out fundraising activities to support Student Government functions.
Elected officers consist of a student body president, vice-president and a class president and vice-president for each grade level. Elected officers serve for one school year, but may serve in the same elected/assigned position for more than one year. Students wishing to serve on Student Government without being elected as an official may serve as a Class Delegate. A Student Government advisor is assigned to help facilitate government activities.
Key Club is a service organization sponsored by Kiwanis International that is open to all interested PLS students. Members pay yearly dues as well as complete a minimum of 10 service hours in 12 specific Key Club-sponsored activities (these hours also count toward the general yearly PLS community service requirement). Key Club’s goals are to develop initiative and leadership, serve the school and community, cooperate with one another and with school leadership, prepare for useful citizenship, and encourage the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
National Honor Society
Membership in the National Honor Society is both an honor and a responsibility.
Students selected for membership are expected to continue to demonstrate the qualities of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. For many students selection as a member of National Honor Society represents the pinnacle of their achievements in school. This honor, recognized throughout the nation, is both a public recognition of accomplishment and a private commitment to continued excellence on the part of the new member.
