A message from the principal…
Dear Middle School Parents:
So much has happened at PHMS since my last update! On October 23 and 25 parents and students attended parent-teacher conferences. We were excited with 80% of our parents attending. Thank you to teachers and students who put time in each week to develop portfolios that students then presented to their parents during student-led conferences on Monday, especially.
Then on Thursday, October 26, the board of education awarded Trackmakers to middle school students for scoring at the advanced level on last spring’s MAP tests. We are proud of the accomplishments of these students and are working to increase the number awarded next year at this time.
This is the inaugural year for Illuminate/DnA testing. Although it was piloted some last year, this year students took pretests in math and ELA, received their scores, and set goals for the next test. Those will be taken during the week of November 13. The results will be collected to measure progress in student learning and consequently to adjust instruction. The students will again take the benchmark tests in the spring.
Friday, November 10, PHMS hosts a Veteran’s Day assembly to honor veteran and active-duty service members. Included in the assembly are a speech from a Purple Heart recipient, Bryenna McConnell; a performance from the PHMS eighth-grade band; and a performance from the PHMS choirs.
Winter sports are underway in November with first home contests on November 20 for boys’ and girls’ basketball. Boys play at the High School while girls at the Intermediate School. Wrestlers first home meet on November 30 at the Middle School.
Enjoy the rest of fall and the upcoming holidays!
Greg Reeves, Principal
