PHS will continue to use the Seeing Stars and Visualizing & Verbalizing reading programs.  Both programs are individualized and structured around each student's abilities and needs.

Major assignments and projects will be posted on the class calendar. However, students will bring home smaller assignments in their homework folders.
 
Students should bring pencils, erasers, homework folders, and their planners to class every day.
