Class of 2029, please join us on Thursday July 27 at 6 p.m. for 7th grade Orientation Night. Students and parents will have the opportunity to hear from their principal, assistant principal, athletic director, and counselors at this time. This will be an informative session and any questions you have regarding your student’s transition to the junior high can be answered at this time. We will have an open house/meet the teacher night closer to the first day of school for students to tour the building and their individual classrooms. Schedules will be available during orientation: Please plan to attend and pick up your student’s schedule. Due to state requirements, there has been a change to how students will fulfill some of their elective classes in 7th grade. All 7th grade students will be on a rotation schedule every 9 weeks during their 4th period class. This will allow students to have a more well rounded experience and exposure to the electives offered at PHS. We believe that this will be a beneficial experience for students and it will better prepare them to make informed choices of their future pathway (9th grade) as well as being exposed to a variety of experiences before making a final decision of what electives they wish to take in high school. Students will all receive instruction in the core classes of: English, Math, Science and Social Studies. We are looking forward to meeting all of our new 7th grade students & their families! If you have questions, or are unable to attend, but would like additional information, please contact the guidance office at - 812-723-3905.

Hello Ram Families! This is Superintendent Greg Walker with a Friday update. I want to thank all our students and staff for adapting to our temporary mask requirement. The goal of that requirement seems to be working. We had two students and one staff member who tested positive this week for Covid-19 and since we have a temporary mask requirement in place, we had to quarantine zero students for being a close contact. We do have 24 students who are quarantined for being a close contact to someone outside of school. Thanks to everyone for their cooperation, God Bless, and Go Rams!
Hello Ram Families! This is Superintendent Greg Walker with an important update. At this evening’s regular monthly meeting of the Paoli Community School Corporation Board of School Trustees, in an effort to minimize the number of students who are excluded from school due to contact tracing and quarantine guidelines, the board voted to implement a temporary mask requirement for pre-K-12 students and staff effective tomorrow, September 14th through October 18th, their next scheduled regular monthly board meeting. The board will review data gathered at that time and will remove the mask requirement if warranted. It is our hope that after this short four week span, we will be able to do that. Thank you and go Rams.
This is a reminder to all parents and guardians of students age 12 and over - Engleking Pharmacy will be at school on Tuesday, September 14th to give the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to those who have a signed consent.
