Spectators at Winter Events

Submitted by david.rockwood on Mon, 12/14/2020 - 10:09

There has been some confusion about who can and who cannot attend our winter season sporting events and activities. We apologize for the confusion. 

The policy IS: The parents of participants are the only people who can attend. Tickets are non-transferable.

The policy is NOT: Each participant gets two tickets to give to whomever the family chooses. (This is NOT the case.)

Dear Parent(s) of a Graduating Senior, 

In just months your student will be graduating. This is a major accomplishment in your student’s life, and there’s no better way to tell your son or daughter “I love you,” and “I’m proud of you,” than through a Senior Recognition Salute in the yearbook. Senior Salute may include a baby photo, or a first-day-of-school or kindergarten, or childhood photo.

Veteran's Day Assembly 2020

Submitted by david.rockwood on Wed, 11/11/2020 - 10:40

At PHS we recognize the quiet courage, steadfast selflessness, and unprecedented patriotism of our military veterans. Because of the pandemic restrictions, we were not able to hold an in-person assembly to honor and thank our veterans and to help develop the same in our students as we normally do. Instead, our Social Studies department organized a wonderful virtual assembly that can be viewed at the link below. It was broadcast into every classroom during our assembly time today.
