The Writers’ Café members of Palmyra High School entered the 2017 Wee Authors Publishing Contest for poetry, and five members were selected to have their poems published in the 2017 Wee Authors Book. This is a national publishing contest. The purpose of the contest is to inspire students’ interest in reading and writing. A free copy of the book will be donated to the school library. Mrs. Wallace is the Club Advisor.

Students in Spanish and German classes held the annual World Culture Day celebration on April 13, 2017. Students created over 50 posters with the theme of “cultural holidays” from around the world. Students also made foods from those countries for all students and staff to sample.

The Environmental Science Club hosted an Environmental Day event on Tuesday April 25th to coincide with Earth Day on April 22nd. Students and faculty visited throughout the day and the club invited Mrs. Falcone to bring some of her students from Charles Street School to share their Styrofoam ban initiative with our high school and middle school students. We are proud to say that Environmental Day was a success and included almost 50 student-made posters and three hands-on stations.

On Tuesday, April 11, the Tomorrow’s Teachers students at Palmyra High School were provided with the opportunity to walk In Another’s Shoes. Ashley Young, Jessica Goldschmidt, Bethany McGuire, Liza Tait, and Rebekah Allen shadowed and interviewed district staff to learn their role in making Palmyra Public Schools great. It’s not every day that students are fortunate enough to see what an important role all members of the Palmyra school community have in making each day a success. Thanks to administrators, buildings and grounds staff, district support staff, school secretaries, and the media specialist, Tomorrow’s Teachers were able to get a behind-the-scenes peek at the hard work and determination that it takes to make PHS run smoothly!
