E-Cards for Pike Students

Extend the shelves beyond school walls with electronic library cards.  A partnership with Pike and our public libraries allows our students to receive an electronic card (E-Card) to access millions of digital resources from the Indianapolis Public Library. Both public and school libraries are community centers at heart, with the same goal: to provide a safe, welcoming environment for all patrons and access to information in a variety of formats. Research shows that when students can get books more easily, they spend more time reading. When they spend more time reading, research shows they read and write better.  All Pike students will receive an electronic card (E-Card)  to access digital resources. However, if you do not want an electronic card for your student, please decline by completing the opt-out form at this link.

Motown Magic is Back! Motown Logo

The Pike Township Educational Foundation will proudly present Motown Magic at our Pike Performing Arts Center on Saturday, February 3, at 7:00 p.m.

In The Heights

IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. IN THE HEIGHTS is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.

Our Pike High School Cadets were out in force and displayed a level of polished professionalism that was noticed by all. Serving as ambassadors for Pike Township by greeting, welcoming and ushering throughout the evening, their conduct was nothing less than spectacular. #pikeproud

Student Summer Research Opportunity with IU School of Medicine

Vicki Bonds Director of Health Professions and Pre-Doctoral Programs with the IU School of Medicine shared great information with Pike students about the IU Simon Cancer Center Summer Research Program (SRP).  This program is designed to increase the number of high school and undergraduate students from underrepresented populations pursuing biomedical and behavioral science careers by providing positive and meaningful firsthand exposure to these fields.

During the eight-week program (June 4-July 27, 2018), participants work and are compensated for 40 hours each week. Full-time attendance is mandatory throughout the program’s duration. Of course, unforeseen emergencies and school-related obligations may come up, thus, some flexibility may be allowed. However, due to the rigorous nature of the program, a commitment to daily attendance is required.

Selected participants will be paired with a research mentor. Research projects may involve laboratory-based research, computer-based database research or clinical research. Students will learn about research methodology and will complete a project over the summer months. They will present their findings as well as give oral presentations. Applicants are expected to actively participate in all aspects of the program, including professional development. Applications are due Feb. 23, 2018. Questions? Contact IU School of Medicine’s Health Professions Programs at askhpp@iupui.edu.
