Mr. Todd Kelly Stage Dedication Ceremony

A Teacher Hero is Honored at PGHS

Veteran teacher, Mr. Todd Kelly, was honored on Saturday evening by having the stage named the H. Todd Kelly Stage. This is most appropriate as he directed 47 plays and musicals on this stage since 1987. Mr. Kelly is a courageous man who gives tirelessly to the students of Pottsgrove. Congratulations to Mr. Kelly and his family for leaving a legacy that will continue forever in Pottsgrove.

Faculty Meeting this Tuesday at 2:20 pm

March Madness Bounces into PGHS

PGHS will be celebrating March Madness all next week as we focus on promoting colleges and universities to all students. Plus, our School Counseling Team will be sending out an email each day, for parents, on important things that you need to know about getting into the best schools.


Teacher Expectation: Teachers will begin each class by leading a discussion on their own college experience. The questions are listed below.


Montco Monday - Montgomery County Community College will be here in the lobby to answer questions and share information about their programs & wear Maroon/White MCCC's color.
Teacher Question: What college did you attend and why?


Tuesday T-Shirt Day - Those wearing Temple Gear get a free dress down pass from Dr. Z for a future Dress Down Day :)
Question: What major did you select in college and why?


Wednesday Hat Day
Question: What was the greatest obstacle you had to overcome in college and how did you overcome it?


Thursday Hoodie Day - Those wearing Temple Gear get a free dress down pass from Dr. Z for a future Dress Down Day :)
Question: How was your transition from high school to college? What helped you to find success?


Friday Fan Day - Wear your favorite March Madness team's colors/gear
Question: Did any on campus college activities support or enrich your college experience? i.e. sports, clubs, tutoring, travel.
