PASTA FOR PENNIES!
We are thrilled to report that Palmyra High School students and staff reached deep into their pockets (and sofa cushions) to raise over $1200.00 during the Pasta for Pennies fundraiser to benefit children with blood cancer. This fundraiser is supported by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), through which proceeds are donated to support research and treatment for children affected by this illness. Despite snow days, delayed openings, and other scheduling changes, the people of PHS showed their true generosity and compassion. We are so proud of what they have done to support others in need! Thank you especially to Ms. Shore, who spear-headed the campaign at PHS!

Palmyra High School's Consumer Affairs Club competed in the Burlington County Regional of the NJ Consumer Bowl on February 19th. The competition pitted students from 10 local schools against each other in a “game show” style competition on consumer law and protection topics. Palmyra finished second out of four in group competition, narrowly losing to Rancocas Valley Regional High School in a tight lightning round of questions. Rancocas Valley moved on and fell just short of upsetting perennial winner Moorestown Friends in the championship round. This was Palmyra’s best showing to date, led by juniors Jonas Di Pinto and Sharmaine Belton. Juniors Andrew Katella and Tyler Cox rounded out the team of four and contributed at opportune times during the competition. Advisor Mr. Dyl is looking forward to competing again next year as all four team members will be returning. Any underclassman wishing to join the club and potentially compete in future competitions should seek out Mr. Dyl in Room 215. See the crew in action coming up with the battle plan:
At the regular meeting of the BOE on Wednesday, 2/12/14, the decision was made to advance snow make-up days into the Spring Break. This decision rested on the importance of obtaining quality instructional days prior to State assessments. As of date, the following makeup will occur:
