Looking for input
PHS is looking for public input on any before, after and summer school programs and/or tutorials for students. If you have suggestions or recommendations, please contact school officials to incorporate this into the 21st Century Grant. Suggestions or recommendations can be sent to the main office at the high school.
Seniors and parents, there are numerous scholarships available in the PHS Guidance Office. Senior can earn $250-$7,500 for college by doing a few hours worth of work filling out an application. Few students are accessing these grants.
