freshman_orientationOn Wednesday, this week, January 18, Plymouth High School will open its doors to host the Freshmen Orientation and Open House.  The event will be held from 5:45 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

For decades, Plymouth High School has held a Freshmen Orientation for eighth grade students who will soon be making the move from Lincoln Junior High School to Plymouth High School in the fall.  The evening was traditionally designed to create a smooth transition for students transitioning from one school building to another.

During the past few years, the event has evolved into an open house designed to not only welcome incoming freshmen in the Plymouth School Corporation, but also to give those who are interested in transferring their child or children to Plymouth Schools, a chance to come peek inside and see what type of programs the corporation offers.

From 5:45 p.m. to 6:10 p.m., in the PHS cafeteria, parents and students will have the opportunity to visit departmental displays and speak with staff members and current students about programs and courses offered at Plymouth High School.

At 6:15 p.m., the program will officially start in the auditorium beginning with a brief welcome. Immediately following, participants will rotate every 25 minutes to three interactive and informational breakout sessions pertaining to the following:

  • Freshmen courses and graduation requirements
  • Life as a student at Plymouth High School
  • Preparing for career readiness

The 2017 Open House Freshmen Orientation is open to students and parents from any school district. If students and parents are exploring the possibility of transferring into the Plymouth Community School Corporation for the 2017-2018 school year or in the near future… this event is the perfect time to come see why PHS is ranked among the top high schools in the Hoosier state!

A team of dedicated counselors, teachers, and administrators will be on hand to answer questions that students and parents may have about the Plymouth Community School Corporation, Plymouth High School, and the Weidner School of Inquiry at Plymouth High School.

All eighth grade students who plan on attending PHS in the fall and their parents are encouraged to attend this exciting event as well as parents and students from outside of the Plymouth Community School Corporation.
Also taking part on Wednesday evening, the Plymouth High School Guidance Department will be sharing PSAT Score Report information with Plymouth High School parents of sophomores and juniors from 5:45 p.m. to 6:10 p.m. in the PHS Studio Theater. This is a change from the original school calendar.  Students already have access their scores and information has been posted to the PHS Guidance website; however, at the event, paper copies of the score reports will be distributed and students and parents will have the opportunity to ask questions. Plymouth High School is a test site for the SAT in March and understanding PSAT scores will help student prepare in the best way possible.
