Welcome to Portage Central High School
As parents and school folk, we always want to be vigilant to see how our kids are responding to crisis that happen in our state, our nation, and our world. The school shooting in Florida being the most recent example. Part of this important work happens here, as teachers and counselors watch out for our kids who are struggling and then get them the support they need. And part of this work happens at home, where parents and kids continue to talk about the difficulties we face. With that in mind, here are two resources that when you have time we hope would be useful to you, to give you ideas and support as you have these conversations. As always, please contact us at any time if we can help. Thanks, as always, for working with us.
Parents of 8th Graders:
Thank you to all the parents and students that were able to attend our Eighth-Grade Students’ and Parents’ Night. If you were unable to attend or want to review the presentation click here and here for even more information covered that night.
As we prepare for the construction of the new McCamley Field, we are again selling commemorative bricks to friends and families so that they can leave their mark where tens of thousands of Mustangs have had wonderful experiences for decades. If you would like to be a part of this, please visit our site: www.PCBrickSale.com, or print out our brick order form. All proceeds will go toward projects that will help us remember and respect our history and that will provide additional resources for our kids on the field and in the stands, performing at halftime and celebrating their myriad accomplishments. Thank you for being a part of us today, and thank you for being part of our kids’ lives tomorrow. For more background on the brick sale click here.
We’re experiencing technical difficulties with our Parent email Service and are unable to send out parent emails at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience.
