Family Survey:

Please give us your feedback. You can easily use the QR code in the image below to take a quick PfISD survey. Please know the summary of results (not yours individually) comes back to PHS and we use that data to figure out what we are doing well and set goals to improve where we can. Thank you in advance for taking that survey.

Dear Families,

Our district values your feedback! We are asking you to take a brief survey to tell us about your experience with your student’s campus. To ensure we continue to provide high quality, rigorous learning experiences that meet the needs of our learners and prepare them for college and career, we need your feedback. We want to know what you think.

The survey will close on April 6. Click here for survey

Congratulations to Boys Soccer:

Our boys took on Anderson at Kuempel Stadium Wednesday night in one of the most exciting playoff games I have ever seen. Both teams were evenly matched and Anderson came back to tie after PHS took an early 2 goal lead. They went into two periods of overtime where Anderson again came back and tied the game to end overtime with a score of 3-3. 

Next, both teams competed in a 5 player shootout and PHS won on the final kick by making 4 penalty kicks to Anderson’s 3. What a crazy ending.

Stay tuned for information on round 2!

Girls Soccer:

Reminder: Girls Soccer plays their round 1 of the playoffs at House Park Stadium (tonight) Friday 3/25/22 at 6pm. I hope to see you there!
