4/7/2020: UPDATE for SENIORS
One of the special events we had planned for the spring was a senior signing assembly. At the assembly, we were going to recognize all of the future plans for our seniors (military, tech school, work, 2 or 4 year school, gap year, etc). We plan to still make this happen in a video fashion. We hope you are all willing to be a part of this for the senior class!

Good Morning Students and Parents,
This is a long message, please read through all of the information. If you have any questions, please contact us at the high school. It is critical that students and parents are checking their email several times a day for information from the school. This includes updates from the office and all the different teachers. At this time, students will not return to classrooms at PWHS until April 14th.
Towards the bottom of this email is a good article on the facts of the coronavirus. I think it would help if you read and review these facts as a family and also why it is important that students not view this time similar to a snow day.
We will provide further updates as necessary.
Information on Classes for Students:
Teachers are working on a plan this week for online learning. We will be utilizing a combination of PowerSchool learning(haiku) and resources like google chat to meet virtually with students on lessons, assign work, provide support, and give assessments. We will provide students and parents more information on when online learning starts later this week.
Together, teachers are working on:
- Curriculum that will be taught online
- How it will be taught
- How teachers will support students that need help
- How it will be assessed

PWHS Pirate Treasure Program
PWHS Pirate Treasure Program
If you are interested in applying for a donation.
11/20/2019: Today at PWHS, we had our first donation meeting of the school year. Students pooled their own money ($30 each- totaling nearly $3,000) for the donations. Lakeshore Advocacy Center, Ozaukee Family Services, SES School and Port Main Street presented projects for consideration of a donation from the students.
After four excellent presentations, the students had the difficult task of choosing one to receive a donation. Today, they chose to give $2,000 to the Heart of the Harbor Main Street Project.
Thank you to PWS Rotary for their donation to the group!
