    Come Volunteer With Us!  
    Summertime means DOUBLE hours, so we have the chance to earn lots of money for PHS. Spread the word to fellow parents, staff, and community members who might be willing to help. Don't forget that volunteers earn 50% off at each shift.  Students 10 and up can volunteer with a parent, and teens who volunteer can earn hours for their middle or high school if they need them.  
    Summer Workgroups 
    Tuesday, June 15 from 6:30-8:30pm 
    Wednesday, July 7 from 6:30-8:30pm 
    Sunday, July 18 from 1-3pm 
    Monday, August 2 from 6:30-8:30pm 
    Contact if you want to help at a different time. Drop-ins are also allowed during hours the shop is open, so we can let a manager know if you are interested in some daytime or Saturday shifts.
    No time to volunteer at a work session?
    You can still earn volunteer hours by donating much needed supplies to the thrift shop! Purchase needed items from the Amazon Wishlist or grab some of these things when you are out and notify to arrange for pickup: 30-gallon Trash Bags, Masking Tape, Hand Soap, Mopping Liquid, Lysol Spray, and Paper Towels 
    Please save your receipts to include with your donations because that's how hours are credited! 
    One volunteer hour is earned for every $7.50 in supplies donated.  
    Thank you for your contributions!

    Monthly Mariner Message
        November    February    May    

    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.
