PCHS Family Conference Night

Dear Ramily:

 

Winter Remote Family Conferences will be held the afternoon of February 17th from 4:06 p.m. to 6:36 p.m.

To register for conferences please use the link for Parent-Teacher Conference Wizard (PTC Wizard) located on our school website (shs.portchesterschools.org). Also located on our website will be detailed instructions on how to register and make appointments to see your child’s teachers.  You may register and make appointments at the website starting January 24th and through midnight on February 16th.

Once you click on the link on our website, you will be brought to the PTC Wizard site.  On the page, you will be able to create an account for the site, by entering your name, an email address, and a self-selected password.  Once you enter your child’s name, you will be taken through a simple, step-by-step procedure, which allows you to choose from your child’s teachers’ available time slots.  After you create a conference schedule for yourself, the details of your schedule will be automatically emailed to you to use on conference night.  A bilingual instruction guide to walk you through the procedure for the first time can be found on our website beside the notice about the PTC Wizard.

You can use our website and this service from any device that has Internet access.  If you are not able to use a computer or lack access, then you may still call a secretary at Port Chester High School at 934-7958 or 934-7956 to leave contact information and schedule appointments for you. You may call when school is in session between January 24th and February 16th.

Please consult your child’s most recent progress report or report card for the names of his/her teachers and remember that to access the Google Meets on February 17th, you will need to use your child’s school issued email and password.

If you do not schedule appointments with your child’s teachers and still want to speak with them, then you may request a phone call from each teacher by emailing the teachers directly or phoning us during school hours at 934-7952.

We look forward to seeing you virtually for our Remote Family Conferences on February 17th.  This is an important opportunity for you to meet with your child’s teachers and to be involved in your child’s education.  To promote good communication, we ask you to please have your child with you for the Google Meets with his/her teachers.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Sincerely,

Luke A. Sotherden

PCHS Academic Support

Welcome!

Port Chester High School is an  institution that students and staff are proud to call home.  A culturally diverse student body is one of our greatest strengths, and together, we look to build on the school's legacy and rich traditions.

A dynamic administrative team leads a school community that is focused on teaching and learning.  Students are supported by professionals who value the importance of academic achievement and are dedicated to ensuring that students receive the highest quality education possible.  Everyone here feels part of a team whose mission is to help students do their best by creating a positive atmosphere that permits students to learn and teachers to teach.

Over a third of our students successfully complete at least one Honors, Advanced Placement or college level course at PCHS.  We are one of the few Westchester high school authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program.  College-level courses are offered in cooperation with the Westchester Community College Advanced College Experience Program and SUNY Oneonta.

Outside of the classroom, we offer opportunities for students to develop and grow through participation in numerous athletic, musical and other venues.  In the pulsing beat of the award-winning marching band one hears the drumming of the heart of this school. As our athletes race across field and court, one feels the adrenaline rush of Ram Pride.  And in art, choir, theater, journalism and a multitude of extracurricular opportunities, students rise to challenge their potential and broaden themselves.

About one-third of our students participate in at least one sport.  Our student athletes have won league championships in football, soccer, wrestling, basketball, baseball and track.  In addition, we possess a nationally recognized cheer leading program.  Award-winning theater, band and choral programs continue to be a tremendous source of pride.  Literacy publications showcase our students' journalistic talents, and the number of other clubs and numerous honor societies demonstrates the well-roundedness of our student body.

In "Hamlet", Shakespeare wrote, "We know what we are, but know not what we may be."  It is this discovering and uncovering of all of our potentials that is at the heart of education and the essence of Port Chester High School.
