    Upcoming PTA Sponsored Events

    In the coming weeks, the PTA will be bringing Growga workshops to PHS students, families, and staff. Growga is an evidence-based program focused on Social Emotional Learning, Yoga, and Mindfulness. Evidence shows mindfulness to be effective for children and young people, with school-based interventions reducing anxiety and distress, improving behavior and academic success, boosting resilience, and having positive outcomes on general wellbeing.
    The PTA will offer a Growga workshop at our next meeting on February 4th at 7:30pm via zoom to offer parents and teachers a chance to experience the calming effects of mindfulness and equip them with tools to share mindfulness with their children and students.  Meeting registration information will be coming soon.  The workshop will be followed by a brief general PTA meeting with updates from Mrs. Doty.
    Following the PTA workshop, a series of pre-recorded Growga videos for students will be available the week of February 8th to offer them a chance to connect, move, and breathe together.
    A Family Growga session will be offered on Friday, February 12th at 6:30 via zoom to give students, parents, and teachers a glimpse of what is offered through Growga classes.  Following these sessions, parents and staff will be surveyed to gather interest in the continued offering of such classes and/or the creation of an optional Growga Club for students. 

    The PTA will also sponsor a workshop for PHS staff in early March.
    More details coming soon!

  • Welcome to Mrs. Doty's Page!

    Monthly Mariner Message
         September     October     November

    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
