At PHHS we look forward to creating the most productive environment for our students to learn.  Our staff is committed to developing young people that will be life long learners and great members of our communities.

I, personally, look forward to working with the great communities of our district, our teaching and support staff, and most of all the wonderful young people that walk our halls.

Tractor Day

Friday, March 28

Yep, Tractor Day at PHHS with our FFA program.  But for a little tradition and look back at the past, the original tractor was on hand.  This sizable horse showed up in our parking lot on Friday morning.  It was pulling a well put together carrying cart with two of our FFA members.


We did have 10 tractors parked in the student lot that made for a great attraction as people drove by on Friday.  Thanks to all our local farmers and the great students in our FFA program.  The FFA is advised by Mrs. Readshaw.

New School Fee Policy

Tuesday, July 2

To be eligible to participate in any extracurricular activity, a student must pay current school fees and all delinquent school fees from prior years by September 20th of this school year. As an alternative to paying delinquent fees in full, parents will have an opportunity to enter into an installment plan agreement with the district, which allows parents to make incremental payments of $10 per month/per child during the months of September – May to reduce prior years’ outstanding fees. However, payment of the current year’s fees is required.
