If so, please link your VIC card to our school number, 1769. Re-linking has to happen every year, and thus far, PHS only has 49 links. This is an easy way for us to raise money for the school, so just give your cashier our number the next time you check out. Spread the word, as VIC cards can be linked to our school at Harris Teeter stores in any city.

What an exciting school year we have in store! We are off to a great start with our remote lessons. Our faculty and staff here at PHS are excited to work with and support all of our families this school year, whether it is through remote learning or face-to-face. This page provides information about our remote learning plans, sample schedules, and Chatham County Schools' district-wide remote learning information.
Thank you for your continued support!
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.
