Wall of Honor

Attention PHS "Veteran" Grads (prior to 1998):

We are excited to announce an addition to  

 our Wall of Honor in the commons. 

Our current Wall of Honor recognizes graduates

of the current PHS building 1998 to present,

who have served or are serving in the Armed Forces.

 

We will be adding a plaque to recognize

as many Veterans, service men and women,

who graduated from Portage High School

prior to this building opening in 1998. 

If you are one of those PHS veteran graduates,

please email Principal Kvalo,

with your full name, date of graduation and branch of service.

Spread the word. 

We'd like to display this new addition by Spring 2015.

Party Like It's November 9, 1989!

 
The German students celebrated 25 years
since the Fall of the Berlin Wall
and the beginning of the end of the Cold War.
 
In the words of Chancellor Angela Merkel,
"Nothing needs to remain the same,
no matter how high the hurdles may be.”
Good message!
 
Thanks to the German National Honor Society members
who organized this event and to all the students
who "protested" the very idea of a wall
dividing a people by leaving their graffiti mark
on the Wall and then tearing it down!
