    This past weekend 33 members from the PHS FFA entered 101 different entries into the Travis County Youth Show(TCYS). The students entered items in the Youth Fair, as well as different livestock animals that they have been working with for months.  Many of the FFA students go before and after school to our barn to take care of their animals. These are awesome hard working students that are great representatives of PHS!!! The following students did well in their respective classes and will be going to the TYCS auction this Friday where many local community members raise money for them to support agriculture education and projects. If you see these students, or any student that entered a project, please congratulate them!

  • Important Remind Update: Texting service ending for Verizon customers

    Posted by Heike Cook on 1/15/2019 5:00:00 PM

    We received this important Remind Update and wanted to pass this along to our Verizon users:

     

    We’re sorry to write with disappointing news. Recently, we learned that Verizon will be charging Remind a new fee that makes it impossible for us to continue supporting free text messaging for anyone who has Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier. Please read on for all the important details—we promise to keep this as short as we can.

    What’s happening?
    To offer our text messaging service free of charge, Remind has always paid for each text that our users receive or send. Now, Verizon is charging Remind an additional fee intended for companies that send spam over its network. Your Remind messages aren’t spam, but our efforts to resolve the issue with Verizon haven’t been successful.

    As a result, the Verizon fee will increase our costs of providing text messaging by 11X—pushing our annual costs into the millions of dollars. This isn’t financially feasible for us to support, and it’s forcing us to end Remind text messaging for everyone who has a wireless plan with Verizon.

    How will this affect you?
    Beginning January 28, 2019, the people in your classes who normally get your Remind messages as texts will no longer receive these messages if they have Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier.

    What can you do?
    To make sure people in your classes continue receiving your messages, ask them to download the mobile app or enable email notifications—both of which are free of charge. Our team’s also working hard on a solution that allows your classes to continue to use Remind by text, and we’ll share more details with you before January 28.

    In the meantime, we’ll keep fighting to make sure educators, students, and parents have access to effective communication. To do this, we need your help: If using Remind has made a positive impact in your classroom, at your school, or anywhere in between, please ask Verizon to reverse the fee here: www.remind.com/verizon-fee

    We’re very grateful for your support, and we’ll be in touch soon with an update.

    Sincerely,
    The Remind team

  • Adopt A Child - Spreading Holiday Cheer

    Posted by Heike Cook on 12/11/2018

    Classes to Celebrate Adopt a Child day

    Adopt-a-Child, an annual tradition here at PHS, will take place during 2nd period class this Friday, December 14th

    On this special day, the entire school celebrates the holiday season by "adopting" children from area elementary schools.  Students in their 2nd period classes decorate their rooms and raise funds that go towards the purchase of small –or large- gifts.  These gifts are wrapped and presented to their "adopted" little ones.  Once the gifts are opened, the class enjoys a meal provided by the 2nd period students. 

    The event is a special holiday celebration for the adopted students and highschool students alike. It has been our experience that while the elementary students leave with arms full of gifts and smiles on their faces, it's the PHS staff and student body that reflect back on this day with hearts and minds full of the holiday spirit of giving and camaraderie. 

    While we appreciate the contributions that made our celebration possible, in an effort to maintain confidentialy of the "adopted child", this event is limited to the participation of school officials, adoptees and PHS students/personnel.
