Pebble Hills Early College

Monthly Newsletter: March 2021

Note From Mr. Talamantes - PHEC Director

PHEC family,


I hope that all is well. We are starting the last grading period. It is important that your child continues to work hard and attend school everyday. It is also important that you have your child log into blackboard and share their progress of their dual credit classes. Please e-mail me if you have any concerns about their progress. We will be having a virtual Spring Parent Teacher Conference Night on March 31st. Please contact your child's teacher to set up an appointment to meet with them. PHEC teacher's emails will be list below. We will also will be holding a mandatory virtual parent meeting for our new Pebble Hills Early College incoming 9th graders (class of 2025) on March 23rd at 6:00 pm link to the meeting will be sent to parent's and students e-mails.
