Where are we at with these?

Essential Skills for students

At a date in the past, the PHS staff met to discuss the essential skills our students will need to have mastered upon leaving high school to be successful in any post high school endeavor. These skills move beyond what is taught in the mandated curriculum and need to be integrated as best we can into our everyday methods of delivering curriculum. Some of these items are part of a specific class curriculum and might need emphasis throughout the curriculum. We wanted to integrate these into everyday learning experiences…..how are we doing?
