Our Jump Rope for Heart/Kids Heart Challenge program kicked off this week! Over the next 2 weeks, our school will have fun working together to raise money for the American Heart Association (and our PHS Physical Education program), promoting healthy hearts and continuing to learn about the value of physical activity!
*** Last year we earned over $400 in PE equipment thanks to YOUR generosity to The Kids Heart Challenge!!
Students can earn their own “Heart Hero Character” backpack key chains (and much more) this year by visiting http://www2.heart.org/goto/Mar
Students may pick up their “Heart Hero” keychains first thing each morning from Ms. Bowling at the gym! Remaining thank you gifts will be ordered at the end of our event. All donations to the American Heart Association are due by Thursday, February 10th!
Yearbooks are now on sale….only $15!!! We encourage you to purchase online at strawbridge.net using Online Code: YB102330.

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am so excited about seeing some familiar faces and meeting our newest Mariners. This summer we have been quite busy preparing the building for your arrival and planning some fun-filled learning experiences for our students.
This year our enrollment remains around 200 students and we are fully staffed with 40 faculty members. Now that we are going to be face to face this year, my goal is to capitalize on the many advantages there are in being a small school. Most importantly we want to build strong, positive relationships within our Mariner community.
Our PTA has also been hard at work doing just that and filling committee chairs in hopes of having a fully staffed board at the beginning of the year. The PTA is always looking for additional support so please email our PTA president, Alison Weston, at President@PHSPTA.org if you are able to volunteer.
This past year our School Leadership Team collaborated with our faculty, staff and parents to write new mission and vision statements that better align with the work we are doing here at PHS. I am so proud of the engagement of all stakeholders in this process and the product that resulted from their dedication. At PHS:
Our mission is to be an innovative,
and growth-focused community
with high expectations for all.
Our vision is that all students will achieve
well-rounded academic, social
and personal excellence as reflective,
life-long learners and engaged citizens.
I truly believe that these statements reflect who we are as a school community and will serve as reminders to all of us about why our work here is so important.
I look forward to seeing you at the opening of school and hope that this school year will be a great success for all of us.
