Administration of the NJASK will take place on April 28, April 29, April 30, and May 1 for all 7th and 8th grade PHS middle school students. Middle school students are required to attend school at normal time.
There will be a 2-hour delayed opening for all 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students to ensure students who are taking the NJASK have the optimal testing environment. All 9th-12th graders are to report to the gymnasium on April 28, April 29, April 30 and May 1. Upon arrival on the testing days, students who are not taking the NJASK are to report to the high school gymnasium by way of the gymnasium hallway entrances (doors #4 and #9). These doors will be unlocked at 9:45 a.m. on these testing days. All high school students should be present by 10:00 a.m. Once the NJASK is complete, students will follow an abbreviated schedule for their classes.
CAREER FAIR A GREAT SUCCESS!
The 2014 Palmyra High School Career Fair was held on April 17th in the high school auditorium. Tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade students visited booths attended by representatives of various career fields from the community to assist them in preparing for the future. PHS students chatted and networked with current professionals in a wide variety of fields about their career journey, a typical workday, educational requirements, and more. Additionally, the fair allowed for students to speak with someone whose career choice interested them, and provided an opportunity to explore areas they may not have considered before. The 2014 Career Fair was spearheaded by Ms. Kara Shore, PHS guidance counselor.
WORLD CULTURES CELEBRATION
On April 18, the World Language Department of PHS (Mrs. Salvo, Ms. DeMarco, and Mrs. Knowles) and their students provided a cultural treat for the entire school. The PHS staff and student body were invited to the auditorium throughout the day to partake in a celebration of the cultures of the world. While Spanish and German are the world languages offered at the high school, countries from all around the globe were featured! A slew of country projects were entered into a school wide contest too. Winners were selected in the areas of creativity and information. Students also prepared food samples, highlighting a variety of ethnic delicacies! Gracias and Danke to all who helped the day be such a success!
In addition to the fun celebration on April 18, the World Language Department held a beautiful induction ceremony for the World Language National Honor Society for German and Spanish earlier in the month. Below are pictures of the two inducted groups (and previous inductees) respectively. These students have worked hard and are very deserving of this local and national recognition!
