Guerin Day information:

  • Tomorrow morning students will go to their 1B class for attendance @ 8:00 a.m. However, Guerin Day is not in the rotation of an A or B Day, so when you return on Monday you will be on a B Day.  We just need students to report to their 1B class on Guerin Day by the 8:00 a.m. bell for attendance.  After attendance has been taken and reported to the office, we will begin calling students to the auditorium for our guest speaker.
  • Students may wear jeans, sweat pants, capris, or appropriate-length shorts with a House T-Shirt, House Theme Shirt, or Providence Spirit Wear. No other shirts are to be worn.
  • Also, the hallway doors will be locked on the 2nd and 3rd floors, so students will not have access to lockers after being dismissed from house meetings. All personal belongings will need to be locked in cars, lockers, or left at home.
  • You will not need your ID cards or lanyards to get into the building or for lunch; it would help if you know your ID number for lunch purposes. If not, the cafeteria staff can look it up.
  • The hallway doors will be opened back up after the day is finished since you will report to your 1B class for attendance at the end of the day. You may get your personal belongings out of your lockers once the bell rings to dismiss you from school.
  • Lunch tomorrow will be served between 11:30 – 12:30. Pizza, chips, fruit, and the usual drinks will be served. The snack line will also be open. Students may eat in the cafeteria or in the bleachers outside nearest the PAC.  
  • School will dismiss at approximately 2:00 tomorrow, so if you are being picked up be sure to remind your parents that the time of dismissal is 2:00 for Guerin Day.
  • We are looking forward to a great Guerin Day on Friday!!

Next week is Homecoming, and to celebrate, each day will have a different theme/event. Houses will also have a Bulletin Board Competition.

Monday’s theme is FALL into Homecoming: Fall Colors Day. In honor of the first day of autumn, students, faculty and staff can wear Fall colors with spirit wear bottoms (jeans/sweat pants). PHS Spirit wear can also be worn as an alternative.

Seniors: Need help with college essays? Lilly essay? Mrs. Van Laan will be at PHS to help you edit your essay! If you are finished with the Lilly essay, or would rather work with her on your Common App or IUB, or other essay, you may bring that instead. She’ll be here during BLUE Days on Monday and Tuesday on Sept. 9-10 in the Counseling Conference Room to help you.

It might be a good idea to bring a paper copy for her to review/make notes on. We could print a copy if needed, but it would also save time in the morning if you have it with you already.

Also, if you need help identifying which topic to write about, bring your ideas and she can help with that as well. You could brainstorm Monday, draft that evening, and bring back for further discussion and feedback on Tuesday. See you Monday/Tuesday in the Counseling Conference room for essay writing help!
