    Greetings PHS Team & Pfamily:

     

    We hope that our students enjoy their four-day weekend. We appreciate their hard work in their classrooms and extracurricular activities. Please see several of the highlights below and on our PHS Facebook Page.

     

    Our Teachers and Staff members are using today and Monday to plan in more-depth as we continue to meet the needs of our students to ensure high student achievement. 

     

     

    Class of 2024 Academic Achievement Spotlight

     

    We could not be more proud of the Class of 2024 and their amazing accomplishments. So far, they have applied to 1,984 colleges or universities and received 1,165 acceptances. As a class, they have earned 14.9 million dollars in Scholarships, with many receiving enough aid to cover their college tuition and fees or more.

     

    Furthermore, we have numerous students having completed a certificate program or already working to complete their mandatory hours in their chosen field! Three seniors have even enlisted to serve our country.

     

    With over 78% (District Goal is 78%) of the seniors College, Career, or Military ready, they have proven to the world that they are ready to take on the next challenge. AND they aren’t done yet!

     

    We are incredibly proud of all the wonderful things from our Seniors and their accomplishments. Keep up the amazing work!

     

     

     

    Grades-Parent Skyward Portal

    As we continue to maintain a high focus on academics for all of our students, parents/guardians, please continue to monitor your child's grades in Skyward and connect with their teachers, counselors, and/or administrators as we work together to ensure all of our students excel academically. 

     

    Here is the link to the Parent Skyward Portal and the PHS Staff Directory. Our teachers are working closely with students and providing rigorous lessons as we aim for high academic achievement, and monitoring our students' grades (academic progress).

    PHS Girls Basketball Team

    PHS Golf

    Congratulations to Sophomore Dani Nunez for placing in the top 10 at the Sammons Park Invitational Golf Tournament beating more than 100 players from 12 high schools for this honor. 

     

    Panther Pride Recipients

    Congratulations to our Panther Pride recipients for this grading period as they represent our PHS Crest values (Resilient, Accepting, Involved, Kind, Passionate, Hardworking).

     

     

    U.S. History

    In US History, students completed a civil rights road trip gallery walk. They walked around the room to different stations to learn about the civil rights movement. The stations consisted of major events such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Little Rock 9, March on Washington, and MLK assassination. They were able to investigate civil rights leaders and learn about their contributions to American History. This Unit has tied in well with the understanding of Black History Month.

    Panther Celebration Class of 2024

    Senior parents, we need your help! 

    Prom is quickly approaching…which means details to arrange and plans to make. Thankfully, wondering what your senior may be up to after the prom won't be an issue because the Panther Celebration is underway. Panther Celebration is a massive on-campus, after-prom party that keeps kids safe, off the roads, and away from alcohol. After prom, your senior may grab their PJ’s and pillows and head over to the school for a night of video games, movies, food, and giveaways! Like a lot of giveaways…. BIG prizes your students will love!

    But we need your help to make Panther Celebration a success. We are a non-profit composed of a small group of PHS parents committed to providing this safe and fun event. We are looking for volunteers, donations, and prizes. We also would like to hear from any businesses interested in participating or sponsoring the event. 

     If you are interested in helping out with the Panther Celebration, follow this link to sign up. You can also reach us at panthercelebration@gmail.com.  We also meet on Mondays at 6 pm at Casa Garcia's in Pflugerville. 

    Can’t volunteer but want to stay updated? Follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

    Panther Celebration Class of 2024

    Senior parents, we need your help! 

    Prom is quickly approaching…which means details to arrange and plans to make. Thankfully, wondering what your senior may be up to after the prom won't be an issue because the Panther Celebration is underway. Panther Celebration is a massive on-campus, after-prom party that keeps kids safe, off the roads, and away from alcohol. After prom, your senior may grab their PJ’s and pillows and head over to the school for a night of video games, movies, food, and giveaways! Like a lot of giveaways…. BIG prizes your students will love!

    But we need your help to make Panther Celebration a success. We are a non-profit composed of a small group of PHS parents committed to providing this safe and fun event. We are looking for volunteers, donations, and prizes. We also would like to hear from any businesses interested in participating or sponsoring the event. 

     If you are interested in helping out with the Panther Celebration, follow this link to sign up. You can also reach us at panthercelebration@gmail.com.  We also meet on Mondays at 6 pm at Casa Garcia's in Pflugerville. 

    Can’t volunteer but want to stay updated? Follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

    From the AVID Corner of PHS:

    Ask your students about their “Evidence” slide show that they created this week. It is a compilation of their best work from their classes during the 1st semester. They should be extremely proud of all they accomplished!! Next week we start working on goal setting; this is a perfect time to talk to your student about using high school, and especially AVID, as a springboard to the rest of their life. AVID can set your student up for success in college, junior college, trade school, the military, and career opportunities.

    Also next week, our students will be volunteering with the 8th grade invasion as information booth workers, tour guides, Parent Night information booth workers…we love our AVID Ambassadors!! Stay tuned for more information!! #AVIDSTRONG

    JAMII Mentoring Program at PHS

    JAMII Mentoring Program at PHS

    Recruitment for 9th and 10th Graders

    Mentoring is a sustained relationship between a young person and a caring individual who is screened and trained to provide the young person with support, guidance, and assistance.

    Mentoring programs include school, community, and site-based programs, as well as, programs where mentors are community volunteers, peers, or paid staff. Regardless of program model, mentoring programs are responsible for ensuring mentors, of any age, are safe and healthy to interact directly with youth.

    Why Mentoring?

    Mentoring provides children with the caring, consistent presence of an adult friend, which research has shown to be a major protective factor in building resilience among at-risk youth. Mentoring also has benefits for the mentor, including opportunities for personal growth, a deeper connection to your community, and a deep, caring relationship with a young person.

    Young people who had mentors report setting higher educational goals and are more likely to attend college than those without mentors. High expectations and higher educational attainment are key factors in life success.

    The Mentoring Effect: Young People's Perspectives on the Outcomes and Availability of Mentoring

    One in three young people overall report they never had an adult mentor of any kind (naturally occurring or structured) while they were growing up. Nationwide, that means today approximately 16 million youth, including nine million at-risk youth, will reach age 19 without ever having a mentor.

    Mentoring promotes positive social attitudes and relationships. Mentored youth tend to trust their parents more and communicate better with them. A study showed that the strongest benefit from mentoring, and most consistent across risk groups, was a reduction in depressive symptoms—particularly noteworthy given that almost one in four youth reported worrisome levels of these symptoms (The Role of Risk, 2013).

    Come on and join us!

Our students did an excellent job with the transition to wearing their IDs, we recognized our AP Scholars for their achievements on the AP Exams, WINS from our Athletic Basketball Teams, and our awesome Teachers started day one engaging with our students during class as we keep academics a top priority.
