CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE?
PHS Interact and Junior Student Council teamed up on Friday, 2/20 to support "Love Palmyra Day". Students from PHS donated boxes of cereal and containers of juice to support our local food pantries. Our students united and did an absolutely AMAZING job. In return, our students were able to wear pajamas or relaxed clothing instead of uniforms. Mrs. Foster (Interact) and Mrs. Bostock (Junior Student Council) led the charge with their students. Photographed below: Junior Dylan Martin, "Sleepyhead" Mrs. Foster, and Junior Ian Stocker.
SAT PREP COURSES
As you have probably heard, PHS is offering 2 SAT prep sessions to prepare student for the March and May SATs. While Session I is underway, please be advised that students may still register for Session II. See dates below.
These extra-curricular courses are designed to prepare the students of Palmyra High School to take the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). English and Mathematics sessions will be offered separately during each session. These sessions are designed to provide the most up to date test structure, content and strategies for achieving the highest possible scores. Independent practice using College Board test preparation resources in tandem with teacher lead instruction will be the core of the program. Sign-ups for the sessions have been posted in 2 locations: Math – room 209; English – room 119.
- Session I – February 9 – March 12 (SAT is March 14) morning or afternoon sessions offered.
- Session II – March 23 – April 30 (SAT is May 2) morning or afternoon sessions offered.
*Please communicate with Mr. Mehler (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mrs. Foster (email@example.com) for more details. Encourage your students to sign up for this FREE opportunity to sharpen SAT test-taking skills. This program is exclusivley for Palmyra High School students.

CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!
Are you ready to make a difference in the community where you live? If so, please join Hailey Bankowski, Mrs. Foster & INTERACT in an exciting endeavor. Hailey has been asked to be the coordinator-liaison between Palmyra High School students and the Palmyra Cove Nature Park. Hailey recently met the NJ Watershed Ambassador, Nina Odunlami to obtain some very important information about our local natural reservation. Tim Robinson from the Burlington County Soil Conservation District, the watershed ambassador in our district, Joe Traum, and Mrs. Odunlami are in the works of planning for some time in April at the Palmyra Cove Nature Park. Hailey and INTERACT are calling for volunteers so that this clean up will be successful. The cove is part of our town, so it will help with cleaning up Palmyra too! PHS staff and parents are encouraged to volunteer as well. For now, mark your calendars. The BIG CLEAN UP is slated for April 18, 2015 at 8:00 am at the cove (rain date April 25). JOIN US - MAKE A DIFFERENCE! For more information and/or volunteer sign up, please email Mrs. Foster (firstname.lastname@example.org) or see Hailey Bankowski.
