PPHS November Newsletter
#R.O.A.R. #WeArePalPark #TigerTough
I am proud to state that our attendance average for the month of October at PPHS stands at 97 percent! Thank you to our parents/guardians for working with us to bring our numbers so high. This is a testament to your hard work and partnership as we continue to set high goals at PPHS.
Additionally, we are kicking off the month of November with a "You Got Caught...Doing Something Good!" campaign. Faculty and staff will be on the lookout for students who emulate our R.O.A.R. school theme. Everyday, many of our students do the right thing even when no one is watching. We are thankful to have such a caring and respectful student body and, in this month where we give thanks, we would like to honor, thank, and recognize these students. Students who are "caught" doing something good will be awarded with a ticket that serves as an entry to our raffle. At the end of the month, we will pick one lucky winner who will be awarded with a $75 shopping spree at our Palisades Park School Spirit store.
With Tiger Pride!
Mr. Andrew Garcia
