Principal's Corner

Welcome to Portage High School's website.
It's home to the Portage Warriors
and the BEST students and staff in the state! 
It's hard to believe we are less than four weeks from winter break
and then semester one will wind down when we return. 
Students are working hard to stay on track with courses during this busy time.

Post Secondary Night is next week -  Dec 3 from 5:00-6:30 PM.  
Many sessions to help students and parents prepare for life beyond high school. 
Don't miss it! 
Freshman are receiving coupons for one day of  "off campus lunch" privilege
 if they had all passing grades Quarter 1.  

Those that earn a 3.5 GPA or better in semester 1
will earn open campus a quarter before their peers.  Work hard!

Lots of Senior events coming up to help them get ready for graduation. 
Make sure all Josten Cap & gown + invitation orders
have been submitted online.
The due date is DECEMBER 1.  
Coming up:  
Scholarship meeting January 5 at 2:50 PM
PHS Alumni Panel on College Life January 13 at 2:50 PM
Finals Week - Semester 1
January 20, 21 and 22
Look for more information as we get closer to those dates.
This website should provide you with information
on all these opportunities and much more.  
Don't hesitate to contact me with questions.
Visit me on Twitter for all the good news of PHS.

Post-Secondary Options Night
Thursday, December 3
4:00 - 6:30 PM

You can also turn in a favorite quote to go along with your senior picture. 

The quote should be no longer than 75 characters long.
The deadline is
December 1 for this as well.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Zeihen.



Cell Phone Policy--CHANGE


Please be aware of the 2015-16 Cell Phone Policy CHANGE
during the school day. Cell phones are not to be used during 
class time unless directed by the teacher for educational use.
We have found that cell phones in the classroom are very
distracting to our students and their learning.

If a cell phone is seen, it will be taken and held
 until the end of class. 

If you are in the habit of texting your child during the school day
and expect an immediate response, you should only hear from them 
between classes and/or lunchtime.

If you have an immediate need to get a message to your child,
please call the PHS Office (608-742-8545) and we will deliver
that message.
