The Pirate Compass
It's hard to believe that we are headed into Spring with all of the snow and cold weather in the valley. While we push hard to finish strong with students before Spring Break, we are also engaging in some planning for next year...it's an exciting time. We're hoping these updates find you well. Please reach out with questions or concerns.
Phoenix High School- Go Pirates!
Celebrating PHS Staff:
We celebrated Classified Staff Appreciation Week this week. Classified Staff is the backbone of the work in schools and we're showering them with thanks and love.
Spring Break Details:
Special Schedule: Since we have a little over a week for Spring Break, the days leading up to our release we will run a special schedule. Students will have periods 1-7 Monday through Wednesday that week.
We are encouraging students to button up their grades before the break, as the end of the quarter fast approaches upon our return (End of Quarter 3: April 7th).
Are you plugged in?!
We are thrilled to announce that we are partnering with Paper to provide free, 24/7 access to 1-on-1 tutoring and writing support for all 9th-12th grade students. There’s a lot to be excited about with Paper’s Educational Support System, including:
1:1 live-chat tutoring sessions with subject-matter experts in over 200 subjects and four different languages.
Expert review on any written work (essays, creative writing, poetry, lab reports, etc.).
Hundreds of resources and activities to help you best support your student(s) at home.
Interactive shows and activities to expand learning beyond the classroom.
And so much more!
Your student(s) can access this incredible resource today! Have them go to app.paper.co, search for their school, and log in to start a tutoring session. You and your student can also download the Paper mobile app for additional access anytime, anywhere.
