A Message from the Principal

 Dear PHS Families,

Welcome back to the 2018-2019 School Year!  I hope you had a restful and rejuvenating summer.  This year is sure to be an excellent year for our students.  Pacific High School will continue with an academic focus on Project Based Learning, and will be offering two Projects per semester.  Our projects blend a variety of academic subjects as well as provides our students with service learning opportunities and experiential field trips.

In addition to Project Based Learning, our students will have opportunities to participate in several other credit recovery opportunities through Career Technical Education class options on and off campus, Ventura City College classes, work study, and by earning hours during our after school enrichment Program/ Youth Activities. As a reminder, all PHS students are expected to participate in credit earning classes and or activities after 12:42pm.  Beginning the school year with this habit is critical to your student’s success!

I look forward to greeting our students on the first day of school, Wednesday August 22.  Youth Activities will welcome students for breakfast as early as 7:15am in the auditorium.  Homeroom begins promptly at 8:10am.  Please support your student by helping him/her be on time every day to school.  Attendance is also critical to your student’s success.

Please be sure to attend one of our registration and orientation options with your student.  This is mandatory for all new AND returning students. There are many important updates to review with you this year including the NEW student handbook, 5th year senior and 18 year old expectations, dress code, and our new safety fencing.

Tuesday, August 14th at 12:00, 2:00 or 5:00p.m.

Wednesday, August 15th at 12:00, 2:00 or 5:00 p.m. 

Thursday, August 16th at 12:00, 2:00 or 5:00 p.m.

Please consider donating a $10.00 gift card for our student recognition and Renaissance Program. You may bring this to registration or to the main office any time during the school year.  You will receive a receipt for tax purposes should you need one.  Student favorites include Starbucks, Blenders, Subway and Target.

Also, please plan to attend our Back to School Night on Thursday, September 27th from 5pm-6:30pm.

Thank you for supporting your student as they work towards their 2018-2019 education goals. All of the teachers, counselors, and staff look forward to serving you this year.
