Happy National FFA Week to Mr. Thompson and Mr. Harris! Thank you for all that you do!
It is also CTE Month.
Happy National CTE Month
What is CTE? CTE is our Career and Technical Education program. We have three solid programs of study offered here at PHS:
Applied Agricultural Engineering - Mr. Harris
Plant Science - Mr. Thompson
Teaching and Training - Mrs. Marquez
Each program offers its own certification students can earn.
Not only do our CTE teachers apply real world training, I know ours offer so many added life lessons that are priceless in developing successful adults.
Thank you, Mr. Thompson, Mrs. Marquez, and Mr. Harris, for all that you do for our students, staff, and school! We appreciate you all!
The Front Office is celebrating Random Act of Kindness Day with an act of kindness from TK and Dianne Taylor.
Thank you for the Sonic Drinks. It was a sweet surprise!
