PHS Freshmen Orientation
Wednesday, January 15, 2020
Parents and students who make up the class of 2024 are invited to attend the annual Freshmen Orientation program on Wednesday, January 15, at Plymouth High School. The evening will begin with a PHS Information Fair starting at 5:45 p.m. followed by the annual Freshmen Orientation program in the PHS auditorium beginning at 6:15 p.m. The evening is designed to create a smooth transition for students transitioning from eighth grade to Plymouth High School in the fall. Parents interested in transferring a child or children to Plymouth High School are also welcome to attend the event. Plymouth High School teachers that represent various clubs and programs will be on hand to talk with students before the official program begins. Programs will be organized and grouped around the new IDOE graduation pathways. Dozens of PHS academic departments, clubs, and extracurricular programs will be represented as we welcome the class of PHS 2024. Those who attend are asked to park in the north parking lot and enter through Door 5. Parents and students are encouraged to attend the event together to learn about IDOE graduation pathways, including diploma requirements, employability skills, and postsecondary readiness competencies. Another special event that will be going on during this year's Freshmen Orientation is a special breakout session for those who may qualify as a 21st Century Scholar, a program that will help students pay for college costs in the future. The entire evening is expected to conclude by 8 p.m.
