Penn-Harris-Madison's commitment to providing academic excellence is being recognized on the state and national level again. Penn Math teacher Dr. Richard Robinson was recently selected as an Indiana Finalist for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). Dr. Robinson is one of three Indiana secondary mathematics teachers eligible to receive a PAEMST award, the nation’s highest honor for U.S. K–12 science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or computer science teachers. The awards program is administered by the National Science Foundation (NSF) on behalf of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. State Finalists represent the most outstanding teachers Indiana has to offer and serve as both a model and an inspiration to students and fellow teachers. This is the third time P-H-M has had teachers recognized as a PAEMST award winner. Elsie Rogers teacher Amanda Fox won in 2022 last year for Math; and Penn Biology Teacher John Gensic was recognized in 2019 for Science.
GMS Family Night
GMS is hosting a family night on Tuesday, March 28 for any current GMS students and their parent(s)/guardian(s), as well as any incoming students who are currently in 5th grade and will attend GMS next school year. Students must attend with their parent/guardian. We will meet in the GMS cafeteria (enter the main door).
This is a great opportunity to experience GMS and hear from GMS and Penn Champs!
At the event, there will be a panel of various Grissom staff members and Penn coaches discussing what it means to Build a Student Champion. There are prize drawings and 21st Century Info (free college or trade school)! We said PRIZES!!
You will not want to miss it! We hope to see you there!
