School is about to get in gear! Our theme this year is THINK - CREATE - INNOVATE!
The dome space is being transformed into a STEAM lab and we will continue to provide project based experiences and use the Project Lead the Way modules to engage our students in real life learning experiences. .We want to help our students grow their ability to innovate - to create something new and better! It will mean that we are willing to evolve ourselves too.
This year the elementary school will be assessing a $35 fee per student to cover most of your back to school needs. This amount will pay for all classroom supplies, your planner and class t-shirt. Students will need to provide a backpack and a lunchbox (if they use one). If you need financial assistance or other supplies, please do not hesitate to ask.
We will be participating in the APEX Fun Run again this year. This is a wonderful program that teaches character traits to our students, while having some friendly competition to help the PTO raise funds to support our teachers and schools. The kids really enjoy the program and the money comes right back into their classrooms. Watch for information to come home on Monday, August 27th- we will have a kick off pep rally that morning. Thank you for supporting our schools!

This year each student will have a folder for daily communication, clearly labeled with their name. The calendar and information inside should keep you up to date with events and class happenings. This folder is also a great way to send a note to your child’s teacher if needed. As always, we want to keep you informed and answer any questions you have about your student’s education. Please call or email and we will answer promptly.
We are looking forward to a FANTASTIC year at PHES. By working our brains to think of creative and innovative solutions, we become stronger and become more critical problem solvers. Let’s get thinking!
