It's time for our 8th graders to start looking down the road a little bit (both figuratively and literally) because Freshmen Year is just a few months away! 

In order to best prepare our students, I will be talking to every 8th grader the week of February 1st (through their science class) about what to expect when selecting courses for next year, what endorsements mean and how to determine the best one to pick, and exposure to career interests. It's going to be a BUSY February!

If you're curious about what all PTHS has to offer, please visit their updated Course Description Guide for 2021-2022 here

For more information about planning for high school and beyond, please visit Texas Education Agency's Graduation Toolkit.  There's a LOT of good information here, as well. 

I know many parents have questions and concerns about this next phase for their child, so please feel free to email me at [email protected] 

Also, their counselor for next year will be Mrs. Jamie Ladd ([email protected]), so she can answer specific questions about high school scheduling.
