The Panther Pit-Stop (PPS) is our Cadet run Student Store Fundraiser. Cadets and Boosters work the PPS every lunch period. The Cadets work from 11:40AM to 12:25PM and the Boosters work from 11:15AM to 12:45PM. The Cadets are responsible for the management of the store.
Cadet & Booster Scheduling:
The Cadet OIC & NCOIC work in tandem to ensure each Upper Class Cadet Flight PPS Lead and Alternate Lead (Must be Pine View High School Cadets) schedule Flight members (Also only Pine View High School Cadets) to work the PPS. Working the PPS is a Flight Team effort to ensure at least two cadets run the PPS each day. The Flights are given a schedule of what days they are responsible to cover the PPS during a given academic quarter. Each Flight member receives a PPS grade based on coverage of the PPS that is worth 6% of their overall quarterly grade.
The Booster Coordinator is responsible for recruiting and scheduling Booster Parents to run the PPS each day. The goal is to have two Boosters each day to handle the financial operations of the store (CADETS ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO HANDLE MONEY). However, the store can operate with one Booster as long as that Booster has completed a WCSD background check and is authorized to work solo with cadets. A Booster without a background check can work the PPS with cadets with another Booster without a background check as long as both Boosters are present together at all times. This is not a long-term solution and is usually only short-term while Boosters are in the process of getting their background check.
The Cadets, NOT the Boosters, are not responsible for cleaning the PPS. The PPS OIC and NCOIC will ensure the Flights follow a daily, weekly, monthly, and end of year cleaning regiment posted in the PPS Store.
