     PHS PTA No Fuss Fundraiser &
    Virtual Bingo/Raffle Night

    Everything about this past year has been different, so the same goes for our annual Bingo/Raffle Fundraiser!  The 2021 modified event will be on a much smaller scale than in past years, but we still aim to raise money for PHS and offer a fun family night for our school community. 

    Here are the ways you can participate: 

    No Fuss Fundraiser April 11-26

    Free Virtual Bingo Night April 27th at 6:30pm

    Marco’s Pizza Fundraiser April 27th
    Help raise additional money for PHS by ordering from the Chatham Downs Marco’s from 11am-9pm on April 27th. 15% of sales from that day will be returned to Perry Harrison.   

    PHS Spring Photo Fundraiser

    Support our school and get your family photos taken at the same time!

    We are having a Spring photo session to raise funds for the PHS PTA the weekend of May 1-2! Heather Varner from Five Feathers Photography is back to offer 15 minute mini photo sessions outside at Camden Park behind Fearrington Village for PHS families.  Time slots are available between 7:30-10:30am and 5:00-7:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

    Sign up for a day and time that works best for your family here.  The sitting fee is $20 which will be donated to the PHS PTA. Once you sign up for a slot, please submit payment here.  You'll later be able to view your photo proofs online from Five Feathers online gallery and purchase what you like from a variety of nicely priced photo packages ranging from $15 for a digital print to more. 

    Please check out Five Feathers Photography:

    *Heather will be wearing a mask and provide hand sanitizer. We ask that you please come to the photo session wearing masks while waiting for your reserved time spot.

  • Welcome to Mrs. Doty's Page!

    Monthly Mariner Message
         September     October     November    February

    Hello Mariners! 

    I want to take this opportunity to say hello to our newest Mariners and welcome back those who are returning. These last couple of months have been like no other and, as you can imagine, preparing for this new school year has brought about its own unique challenges. One thing I do know for sure is that the faculty and staff here at PHS are excited to work and support all of our families this school year, whether it is through Zoom or face to face.

    Our school community looks very different this year than it has in the past. The new school, Chatham Grove, is finished and we lost ⅔ of our families and staff to that community. We are now a much smaller school (around 300 students), which gives us some great opportunities to do things we were not able to do before.  

    The most important first step is for all of us to get to know each other and  build strong, positive relationships with one another so that we can work toward the same goal-providing the best educational experience possible for our students here at PHS. 

    Our PTA is already at work doing some of these things. The PTA board is reaching out to parents to encourage them to join the PTA and come together for virtual meetings. They are also working on recruiting volunteers to serve in different capacities to support our staff and students. Finally, the PTA is working to build strong lines of communication to keep parents well-informed about all happenings within the school. 

    The second step that I would like for us to embark upon is the revision of our school’s mission and vision statements. 

    “Your school’s identity is about defining who you are as a school and communicating that clearly to all of your stakeholders. It is about creating clear mission and vision statements that support excellence and define what your school stands for.” 

    As this quote states, it will be important that we have all stakeholders’ input in this process. This work will begin as soon as school starts through our school improvement team. I will send out more information in the August newsletter, The Mariner Message. 

    It is my greatest hope that we are all back to school face to face as soon as possible. Until then, please stay safe and reach out to us if there is anything you need. 

    To keep parents in the loop on all the great things going on at PHS, they can:

    • Receive my monthly newsletter, The Mariner Message
    • Listen to or receive through email The Weekly Top 5
    • Log into the PTA website at
    • Read Anchor’s Away, the PTA weekly newsletter which is found on the PTA website.
