Dear PHS Families,

I am excited to welcome our Cohort A students to the building for the first time this school year. This will also be the first time our freshmen in this cohort are welcomed to the building, and my staff is looking forward to meeting them in person.  Please have your child bring a printed copy or a screen shot of their schedule. There will be staff available to help all student find their classrooms.  We have great students as well who are always willing to help a peer find their room so please encourage your child to ask for help if needed...we are here to help!

Dear Parents,   

Friday is the final PHS distribution day for student laptops, from 11 AM to 4 PM. Please sign up for a slot to pick up your devices.  After tomorrow, it will be difficult and time consuming to schedule individual pickups due to various COVID-related constraints.  As you know, without a functioning device, your child will have a hard time receiving instructions properly.  Here is the signup:

Hello PHS Families 

This is just a friendly reminder to login to the PowerSchool student or parent portal to fill out the Covid Screening Form between 12:00am and 7:30am each day.  It is not accessible the night before.  In light of the connectivity issues we had this morning it would be great if your child could screen shot (showing the day's date) the green completed screen in order to speed up the morning process at PHS.  I have also attached the form if you wish to print it out.  It may also be helpful for students to screenshot their schedules so they can find their rooms quickly.

The U.S. History 1 classes in Princeton High School often take on some complex issues in our history. This year, students in Ms. Dineen's and Ms. Young's history classes created a series of exhibitions that show the enduring legacies of division.

Brought to you by member of the PHS Class of 2023, each student’s exhibit was designed to share the learning they have acquired in the past year, analyze the lasting legacies of past injustices, conflict, and triumphs to the present day, and help visitors learn more, get involved, or show their support for meaningful causes.

While some of us may be at home watching different crime TV shows on Netflix to pass the time, students in Mrs. Alexis Custer’s Forensic Science course are studying it at home as part of the newly expanded popular course. The hands-on course, which was converted to a full-year course this year, provides students with a wide range of projects and activities that allow them to explore multiple facets of forensics, including crime scene investigation, DNA in forensics, lip print analysis, and so much more.
