All-Region Band Selection

Help me congratulate 7th grade student Kaitlyn Luther for being selected for performance in the ATSSB Region 2 MS All-Region Band, which is an ensemble consisting of the best students in the local middle schools that audition for a spot. Only a small number of students are selected to perform in this ensemble.

UIL Academic Meet

On February 2, PJH will host the speaking, spelling and music memory events. The first event will kick off at 4:00. All other events will take place at PJH on February 17 starting at 2:30. This is a huge event that requires much planning and a plethora of faculty and community volunteers.The PJH/HS PTO has agreed to provide a hospitality room for all meet volunteers. While PJH/HS TMSCA will run our concessions. Our staff and students are working extremely hard to ensure that we continue our tradition of excellence.
