Dear Upper School PHAmily:
We are excited to welcome many of you back and to greet others to the Upper School community for the first time. We are ready to make this school year one of the best years in Upper School history!
Our teachers have been working hard this summer to help us continue our pursuit of excellence here at the Upper School. Our goal this year is simple: Students will be actively engaged in their education. This year we will ask our student to think more, embrace the process, and celebrate their wins.
At the Upper School, we will show students how much we care for them through our expectations of them. We expect them to be successful in all their classes. We expect them to respect one another. We expect parents to be equal partners in their children’s learning. We expect our student to do their best every day!
However, this would not be PHA if we did not have any changes. We have added a new 3 Tier Behavior Intervention System, Wizard Period, Interim Assessments, expanded our electives, and passed out ChromeBooks to all 8th, 9th, and 10th Graders.
We are looking forward to meeting you all in the upcoming months. If you have any questions in the interim, please give us a call or stop by the school. Once again, we are humbled by the opportunity to serve you, and look forward to meeting you all soon.
