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
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.
