Please be aware, based on recent IHSAA correspondence and PCSC legal counsel received on June 2, 2014, effective immediately, all participants for any school sponsored summer sport contest or practice, including open facilities and weight training, will require a pre-participation IHSAA physical and consent form on file in the Plymouth High School Athletic office by July 7th. No student will be allowed to participate without an IHSAA physical / consent form on file in any program -- fall, winter, or spring.
Current physicals, grades 9-11, along with 8th grade physicals on file at Lincoln Junior High are valid thru the final IHSAA tournament series event which is the baseball state final, June 21st. A new 2014-2015 IHSAA physical form needs to be on file in our office by Monday, July 7th for continued summer participation to occur.
Summer 2015, the date will revert to June 20th.
This is a major change to protocol for our athletic programs.
Parents will now have to schedule physicals immediately rather than wait for August 4th fall start date, if the student athlete plans to participate in summer activities.
We appreciate your help, cooperation and patience as we move forward together. In the long term, this will be a positive for our programs.

Today representatives from Lifetouch and Prestige Portraits came to PHS to meet with students regarding their senior pictures. Students were given a packet of picture options to take home and consider.
During the meeting it was stated that students needed to pay a $7 studio fee for their senior portrait for the yearbook. After checking with Lifetouch/Prestige Portraits, we were informed that this fee only applies if the student has their yearbook picture taken at the studio. If they have the picture taken at the school, then the fee does not apply. Additionally, Lifetouch has confirmed that they will again be taking senior yearbook portraits on the first day of school.
Finally, information was provided to students about summer specials from Prestige. Those are as follows:
June-Schedule our Deluxe session in June and pay only $20.15 for the sitting fee. (Regular price $40.) July-Schedule either the Deluxe or Standard Sessions in July and the session fees are cut in half. (Regular price for Deluxe $40, for Standard $20)August-Schedule your session in August and add your friend, pet, or car for free.
For more information, or to set up a studio session, please contact Prestige Portraits at 800-548-1422.

May 12, 2014 - Plymouth High School announced today that its annual Super Sunday will be this Sunday, May 18.
Super Sunday is comprised of three special ceremonies for Plymouth High School students: the National Honor Society induction ceremony, the Academic Hall of Fame induction ceremony, and Baccalaureate service for the 2014 PHS graduates.
“Super Sunday is special day for Plymouth High School students,” said Jim Condon, Principal. “It’s important to celebrate the success of our students who meet our high expectations and standards of integrity. In addition to recognizing our students’ hard work and effort, we must show our appreciation to our parents for their efforts at home.”
The National Honor Society induction ceremony starts at 1:00 PM and will be held in the auditorium at PHS. A cake and punch reception will immediately follow. NHS president Danielle Erickson looks forward to honoring the 29 students who have been accepted. “It is a privilege,” she said. “The students who will be inducted have worked very hard. The ceremony provides them a chance to celebrate their accomplishments and also honor a person who has been a huge part of their life.” In addition to the recipients acknowledging an inspirational person, the National Honor Society will also announce the winner of the annual Plymouth High School Teacher of Excellence.
At 3:00 PM, thirteen different departments will induct twelve students into the Academic Hall of Fame, which will be held in the cafeteria at PHS. The ceremony began with the class of 1986 and is approaching its 30-year anniversary. Recipients of this award must have taken classes in the respective department for a minimum of eight trimesters and have a minimum of an “A” average.
Baccalaureate service, directed by eight PHS seniors, will conclude Super Sunday centered on the theme The Path to Follow. It will begin at 4:30 PM and will be held in the Studio Theatre at Plymouth High School. The service is open to the public.
U.S. News and World Report recently ranked Plymouth High School twelfth in Indiana overall based on testing performance and college and career readiness. Of Indiana public schools, Plymouth High School ranked in the top ten.
This week the Softball team hosted it's first ever Teacher Appreciation Night. Each girl wrote a letter to a teacher of her choice, and we honored them at the start of our game. A big shout out goes to Mr. Beguin for throwing out the first pitch. (It was definitely a strike). So far this year we have only won 2 games, but it was fun to see the girls embrace the opportunity to acknowledge the work you do. The support you all give us means a lot to me and the girls in our program. Through our game we hoped to show that your efforts are appreciated!
Tonight in conjunction with the play, we are having the Tri Kappa Art Show. It is set up on the carpet walls and inside the display case at PHS. Faith and I wanted to encourage you to walk by to check out some of our best pieces created this year. We are so proud!
