Pembroke High School Weekly Update

Dear PHS Families,
 
Here is this week's update.  As always, please do not hesitate to reach out with questions on these or any other matters.  
 
RESCHEDULED OCTOBER CONFERENCES:
Last week's P/T Conferences, which were postponed because of last week's storm, have been rescheduled to Wednesday, December 8 from 1-6 p.m.  Soon the Pick-a-Time portal for these conferences will open, as parents will need to re-book the times for this new date.  We did not want to assume that parents would be available at the same time on this new date, so we cleared the slate.  In the meantime, our November 17 conferences are still on, and the window to sign up remains open.  The window for that date will close at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, November 16.  
 
TONIGHT'S NHS INDUCTION CEREMONY
A reminder that tonight's NHS Induction Ceremony is tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the Randall Auditorium.  All of our inductees can have two guests attend this in-person event.   The guests for each inductee can sit together, but we ask that guests leave at least one seat in between each pairing so that we are maintaining three feet of distance.  Masks are also required for all participants and guests.  
 
VACCINATION ATTESTATION:
As a reminder, the district has begun the process of ascertaining if any of our schools are approaching the 80% vaccination status required to petition the Commissioner of Education as well as local officials for an exemption to the mask mandate.  If you have not already done so, please click here to learn how that process is unfolding for our district, understand the level of confidentiality involved, and access the attestation form that parents can submit to - once again - confidentially indicate their child's vaccination status.  
 
PHS MUSICAL - MAMMA MIA:
After months of hard work, Pembroke High School's Thespian Troupe 7127 proudly presents this year's school musical, Mamma Mia, on November 19-21 (Fri-Sun).  Friday's and Saturday's shows begin at 7 p.m., and Sunday's performance begins at 2 p.m. 
 
Tickets can be reserved in advance by calling (781) 293-9281 x2128. Priority seating can be purchased for $20; otherwise, adult tickets are $15 and student/senior tickets are $10.  
 
We hope to pack the house!  Our amazing student performers, who have put in hundreds of hours preparing, won't let you down.  
 
REMINDER - PTO FUNDRAISER:
This is just a friendly reminder that one of our Parent Teacher Organization's most consistent and reliable fundraisers is from Bay State Textiles.  If you are cleaning out any closets or dresser drawers and have clothing items you'd like to donate, please bag them and place them in the bins found behind the high school or town hall.  A portion of the proceeds is sent to our PTO to help support our teachers.
