Final Exams

“With final exams approaching during the holiday season, it is common for families to request an early release from ALL exams for the entire week.
Unfortunately, early exams are not allowed, but students who will miss the entire final exam week with authorized absences, must be given an alternate make-up exam date by their
administrator. *All 1st semester exams must be concluded before students will be allowed to start 2nd semester classes. Exams that are not complete by the pre-arranged make-up date will result
in a failure for the final exam.””

FACE

“Calling all creative minds interested in sharing your work! Come to the FACE party on December 6th, after school in the Media Café, to kick off submissions for this year’s magazine. This is a chance to share your work, and get it recognized by the PHS community. Remember FACE is your friend, and it’s also school’s fine arts publication.

If you can’t make the party, please remember to submit your work through the PHS website by December 22nd. Stop by the library or art department with questions.”
