Fifth graders from Mrs. Black's class are using The Walking Classroom thanks to a grant provided by the PHM Educational Foundation. The Walking Classroom is a national award-winning program that is a way to learn and get exercise at the same time. Each student uses a walk kit preloaded with 111 podcasts aligned with 5th grade standards covering language arts, social studies, science, and health topics.
With the release of the 2016-17 Accountability Grades, Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation is proud to have nine schools received A's:
The 2017-2018 school year is off to a great start. I’d like to thank all our parents and staff who have made this possible. Our enrollment is almost the same as last year (441). This year we have four sections of kindergarten and first grade with two sections of fifth grade. All other grades have three sections.
ISTEP: We hope to have school wide ISTEP results from the 2016-2017 school year soon. Individual student reports will be mailed to parents. We continue to get mixed messages from the DOE on a release date.
With the release of the Spring 2017 ISTEP+ results, Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation now ranks in the state’s top 4% of public school districts.
Based on both Math and ELA pass results of grades 3-8, P-H-M ranks 12th out of all 292 public school districts in Indiana. For grade 10, P-H-M ranks 9th out of all 292 public school corporations—the Michiana area’s only public school district to make the top 20!
Next Wednesday, Aug. 23 is the first day for grades 1-12 (Thursday, August 24th for Kindergarten), but today Penn-Harris-Madison’s newest teachers had their first day of school!
It was a busy New Teacher Orientation Day for this group of creative, talented and energetic teachers. This year P-H-M hired 41 new elementary, middle and high school teachers, as well Exceptional Education professional staff.
All female P-H-M students grades 3-8 are invited to participate in a community-sponsored girls basketball league. The league begins on Sunday, September 10 and sign-ups are Sunday, August 27 in the Penn High School Arena from Noon – 2 p.m. The "Junior League" is for grades 3-6 and the "Senior League" is for 7th and 8th graders.
