PHMS Principal's Message
Dear Middle School Parents:
We have come so far this year at PHMS! I am excited to report that we have few students on distance learning. We thank all parents and guardians for their support at home as we worked through quarantines and isolations. With a cold winter this year, we instead have learned about Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) days. Again we appreciate students, parents, and guardians for adjusting to these days by completing assigned work that can count for days of attendance.
Remember that there will be no student attendance on Monday, March 7, for a teacher professional development and work day. Third quarter will come to a close on March 11. Prior to that, students will take their spring benchmark tests in ELA, science, and math. These will be used by teachers to determine the progress the students have made in learning the standards for those subjects. This allows for teachers to make instructional adjustments before state MAP and EOC testing begins in late April and early May.
The PHMS choir program is performing a variety show on Friday, February 25, at the high school performing arts center. The band has a concert scheduled there as well on Tuesday, March 8. PHMS has a rescheduled winter dance set for March 4 and a spring dance set for April 29. Track and Field will begin practices in March with home meets on April 12 and April 20.
Students have continued to learn through this unique year and we have found that getting back to normal is hard work. We appreciate all stakeholders who have made that possible this year.
Have a great Spring!
Greg Reeves, Principal
