Important Update on School Events

After careful consideration, TCHS Pickering has decided to discontinue hosting prom events, both now and in the future. We encourage you to maintain your partnerships with your respective sending districts, where you are welcome to participate in all senior student events they host. While we understand this may be disappointing, we are committed to making your senior year memorable and fulfilling. There will still be numerous opportunities for you to create lasting memories, celebrate achievements, and enjoy each other's company in safe and enjoyable ways.

We’re excited to offer numerous events and informational sessions for seniors. Stay tuned for more details about:

  • Cooperative learning and/or internship opportunities
  • Scholarships for postsecondary education and work training
  • Senior parent night
  • College fairs
  • TCHS Pickering career and training fair
  • SkillsUSA local, district and national competitions
  • And much more!

I encourage each of you to approach this year with enthusiasm and a positive attitude. Let's work together to fill this year with accomplishments, camaraderie, and personal growth. Your senior year is a time to cherish, and I have no doubt that you will make the most of every moment.

Welcome to your senior year. Let's make it extraordinary!


Warm regards,

Erin Petters

Principal of TCHS Pickering
