I hope you have had a restful summer and are all ready for a great year at PHSS.
It is hard to believe that students will be back at school on Tuesday, September 5th.
For the first day of school, Tuesday, schools will be in session for half the day and will start approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes later than regular start time.
School bus services for this day will reflect the start time change. All stop locations and routes will remain the same, but morning pick up and drop off times will be approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes later. For a list of the regular morning/afternoon bus pickups please copy and paste the following link:
Parents need to register their child(ren) if they require bus service to and from school. Students will have a Welcome Assembly in the Gym at 11:15 am. From there they will meet in their Teacher Advisory Groups to take attendance, handout student packages (class schedules, planners, parent forms, collection of the $10 student fee).
In the afternoon we will have locker assignments and an opportunity for students to meet all the teachers. Dismissal on Tuesday, September 5th will be at 1:45 p.m.
Student packages will also be sent home with students on Tuesday, September 5th. This package contains forms to be completed by parents and guardians which need to be returned to the school as soon as possible. Please check with your child(ren) on Tuesday for this very important package. In addition to our calls and emails home, please take a moment to download our School APP (MYPHSS). You can download it for free from the App store or Google Play. MYPHSS is a great way to keep connected to everything that is happening in our school with Time Sensitive Push notifications.
Wednesday, September 6 is a regular school day. Our Breakfast Program will start on that day. More information on our Hot Lunch & Breakfast Programs will be sent home with students during the first week of school.
We look forward to welcoming students and parents to PHSS for the start of a great school year! Enjoy the rest of your Summer Break!
Please call/email us with any questions or concerns.
Pender Harbour Secondary serves approximately 75 students from Grades 7 to 12. Our catchment area extends from Halfmoon Bay, Madeira Park to Egmont. Our small size allows for greater one to one support from staff and creates a real "family feel" within the building. We provide a full academic program including Fine and Performing Arts, a full shop program and technology integration in the classroom. In addition, a focus on Personalized Learning allows students greater self-direction over their school program in a supported environment.
