PHS Sharing Tree

SHARE THE WARMTH


Once again, we have a Sharing Tree that has gone up in the lobby area of the HS, where we are accepting donations of new winter accessories (scarves, hats, gloves, etc.) for students who may require these essentials. Each year, we especially find ourselves in need of gloves for our students. We also have a number of Viking supporters that donate beautiful crocheted items every year.

If you would like to donate to the tree, donations may be dropped off at the HS office.


Thank you for your generosity! We love our Viking Family!

Mrs. Hall Named Staff Memeber of the Month of November!

Larrian Kendricks nominated Kerri Hall for Staff Member of the Month for November. Here is what she had to say about Kerri.


Kerri Hall is more than a teacher. She is a helping hand to all students, no matter if they are enrolled in her classes or not. She is a resource for new teachers to help guide them as they embark on their journey as district educators. Kerri Hall is the type of teacher I strive to be someday. Her lessons and lectures go further than just learning a language. She helps students understand different cultures and form strategies to avoid ethnocentrism and become global citizens. Whether it's taking notes at PD for a shared staff or having a place where students can come and borrow lotion or get advice, Kerri is a model teacher, co-worker, and mentor.


Congrats Mrs. Hall!

COVID-19 Vaccines Available!

The Health Office offers opportunities to receive the Covid-19 vaccine every Friday. Students 12-17 may request a consent from the Health Office at any time.

Completed consents, with parent's signature are required to reserve your vaccine. A vaccination card will be provided upon completion of the 2-dose series.

Scholarship Info


Kansas ScholarShop

The rising cost of higher education can be a discouraging factor for many Kansans in pursuit of attending their dream college or technical school. That's why the Kansas State Treasurer’s office has launched the Kansas ScholarShop initiative. ScholarShop aims to restore hope and excitement for students seeking educational and career advancement after high school. With access to 5 million scholarships worth up to $24 billion; students can search and find scholarships, grants and awards tailored specifically to their deepest passions.


UGift

With Ugift you can give a truly meaningful gift—money toward a student's education savings. This convenient, free-to-use service lets you contribute to a student's 529 college savings plan account.


K.I.D.S Matching Grant Program

The State of Kansas wants all children to have an opportunity for a college education, including those from families who otherwise may not be able to afford it. That’s why Kansas is willing to match up to $600 of contributions into a Learning Quest account for families who qualify. If you start at birth, Kansas will contribute over $10,000 to your child’s education. Your investments are managed with the help of American Century Investments.


Kansas ABLE Savings Program

There's no limit to what people with disabilities can do. Now, that includes saving, too. The ABLE Savings Program allows Kansans living with a disability the opportunity to save for their future. With the Kansas ABLE Savings Plan, you can save for qualified disability expenses without losing your eligibility for certain assistance programs, like SSI and Medicaid.


Sallie Mae-Kansas

Scholarship Search is the free way to get access to more than 6 million college scholarships worth up to $30 billion. Register and be entered to win $1,000 for college.


Local Scholarships

Local scholarship info is available to our seniors at any time. All of that information is in their 2022 google classroom. Underclassmen can contact the guidance office at any time as well.

EDUKAN Information

Beginning in the spring of 1998, the presidents of six Kansas community colleges met to evaluate an online means of offering courses to their student populations. From these early meetings, EDUKAN was formed. We are not a separate institution, but instead, a cooperative effort between member colleges to offer courses via the internet beginning Fall 1999.


Students who enroll in our online programs will be able to take coursework that can lead to an associate degree from one of four current, participating institutions.

The institutions currently involved include Barton Community College, in Great Bend; Dodge City Community College, in Dodge City; Pratt Community College, in Pratt; and Seward County Community College, in Liberal.
