Welcome back, students of Palmyra High School. Classes resume for students on Thursday, September 4. We look forward to seeing you soon! Students may enter doors 4 and 9 by the cafeteria starting at 7:25 am. for breakfast. They will be held in that area until 7:35, whereby students will then be able to walk about the entire building, heading to homeroom.

SUMMER SCHOOL WORK
Summer assignments were distributed to current PHS students, incoming 6th grade students from Charles Street School, and incoming freshmen from Beverly and Riverton at the end of this past school year. Palmyra High School's objective is to allow students to rest over the summer, yet keep them refreshed in the areas of Mathematics and English. If you have lost your assignments or if you are new to our district, you may find them in the "PHS Backpack" located on the top left of this page. Select the classes that you are going into this school upcoming school year. If you have any questions, feel free to email your teacher(s) directly or check their teacher websites. You may also contact your respective guidance counselor for questions about your 2014-2015 schedule. Click on "Guidance" on the top left of this page. Have a happy summer and see you this September!

ADDITIONAL SCHOOL SUPPLY...
Please be advised that students will need a set of headphones for the New Jersey state assessments (PARCC) this upcoming school year (spring). While many children already have their own headphones or earbuds, we still wanted to provide ample notice for this state testing requirement.
