Kindness Challenge for February
Students, please take some time to complete a kindness calendar for the month of February. You will notice there are some days that say “You Choose.” These days are for you to decide another act of kindness. If you would like to have us post your act of kindness on our website – you can email your photo to Mrs. Munoz. firstname.lastname@example.org
This is not a requirement, but an opportunity for us to grow our hearts.

Free School Meals Available
Did you know that breakfast and lunch are available at no cost to our students on school days through the remainder of the year? These meals are just the thing for those with an eye toward good nutrition. Our balanced meals offer the protein, the healthy fats and the right amount of carbohydrates that make for a good day of learning.
Students on campus during Plan B can get those meals when it’s time for breakfast and lunch. On remote-learning days, we’re offering meals for curbside pickup at certain schools. You’ll find a listing of those schools, plus updates about all things related to Chatham County Schools Nutrition Services, at chathamcountyschoolmeals.
PTA Meeting This Thursday!
We hope you will make plans to join us for the next PTA meeting on Thursday, March 4th at 7:30pm via zoom. In addition to our typical PTA business and updates from Mrs. Doty, our Media Specialist, Mrs. Spell, will share a presentation about teaching our students safe navigation of the internet.
Mariner Families, we are on the home stretch to finish out this challenging school year, but we have a few more things we'd like to make happen before June! Contact email@example.com
1) Bingo/Raffle Basket Event Planning- Although this will be a smaller event than year's past and likely virtual, we'd still like to hold this event and raise some funds for our school. Can you help?
2) Garden & Landscaping Projects- We need to do some tree & shrub planting and spruce up the grounds for spring, and we'd love to try again at prepping some garden spaces for the students. Come and advise us, Green Thumbs!
3) PTA Board /Committee Recruitment for the 2021/2022 School Year- By May, we will need to vote on our PTA board for the next school year, and it would be great to fill committee chair spots, too. Nominate yourself or a friend!
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.
