Principal's Message

Summer is here and a close to an interesting but fun school year.  Thank you to parents for all of your hard work and support for the school, your sons and daughters, and the work that everyone is putting in.  It has been a great year and a lot of the things we accomplished such as fundraisers, school trips, and student achievement couldn't have happened without your help!

Thank you students for your hard work all year, rising to the challenge and coming to school ready TO LEARN!  We are lucky to have such as great group of individuals here that work together everyday to accomplish the goals and tackle the challenges that are put in front of them. 

Finally thank you goes out to the communities of Patrick Henry Local Schools for your support and passing the levy.  While it doesn't directly impact the middle school it will in the long run because of the added instructional time having all of the students on one campus!  Without your support this could not have happened so thank you!

I hope that everyone has a great summer vacation and we are excited to have everyone back to school on August 19th for the Back to School Bash and then the first day of school on August 20th. 

Thanks again for all of your support and if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at 419-274-3431 or email me at KLacy@phpatriots.org.
