Welcome back to the 201-2013 school year.  For those of you that are new this year, I would like to extend a special welcome.  It is my privilege and honor to work with all of you at Pillager High School.  We have many new and exciting things planned this year.  Please use this page as a reference for announcements and activities.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Please make sure you visit the Scholarship section of my website.  All the scholarships are listed along with links to the application.  Because so many companies, including Pillager High School, are trying to reduce the amount of paper being used many of the applications can be found online.  If a scholarship does not have an online link, hard copies the scholarship application can be found outside of the Media Center.
