Attention juniors and parents of juniors, important PSAT information:
The PSAT is an optional test, and will be given on Saturday, October 15 here at PCHS.  Cost for this test is $20, and signups are in the Counseling Office.  If you are planning on taking this test, the deadline to sign up is Friday, September 30.

Two reasons you might be interested in taking this test: the PSAT is the best preparation for the upcoming SAT that you will be taking in April 2017, and there are also scholarships associated with this test. Counselors will be visiting 11th grade English classes with more information.  If you are interested in taking this test, please do not delay in signing up, as space is limited. For more information on the PSAT click here and go to the PSAT tab.

Want to know what we talked with your kids about at the class meeting?

​Every year we meet with each of our classes welcome them back, to introduce them to our Student Council leadership and to make sure they understand ​what we all need to do to make sure all our students have a safe a productive year. Hit the links below to see the presentations that serve as the framework for these meetings. If you ever have any questions or ideas, please never hesitate to contact Principal Eric Alburtus by phone (323-5255) or email (ealburtus@portageps.org). Thanks!

Join us at our Open House! Wednesday, September 21 at 6:30 p.m. starting in the Auditorium.  Hopefully we have told you how much we appreciate the work and energy you have given to your daughter's or son's education and experience here. Open House is a wonderful way to get to know our colleagues and to start a conversation that will help support all our kids in their work and progress. We know there is so much going on every evening, so we particularly appreciate your support in this way. Here is the program for the evening, as well as the presentation. Thanks -- and it will be great to see you!

The 2016-2017 Senior Guide is now available!  So much is going on during senior year, from college applications to Grad Bash, from yearbook information to where you pick up your diploma after graduation. All seniors received a copy at our class meeting, and you can also download an electronic copy here so you can make sure you are up to date with the responsibilities and rewards of being a Mustang senior!
