Description

Design, program, wire, and build competition robots, as well as develop business plan, public relations, and promote within the community.

The high school competition will be made up of five subject matter rounds (English, science, social studies, mathematics, and fine arts) and a sixth interdisciplinary round in which questions may come from any and all of the subject matter rounds. Some interdisciplinary questions will require knowledge of at least two subject areas.

ASL Club is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn American Sign Language and gain insight into their world. This club is also fitting for Indiana, since the Indiana School for the Deaf (ISD) is only forty minutes away from the high school. Students will be able to learn the fundamentals of the language and form their thoughts. We will meet once every two weeks on a Tuesday unless otherwise specified. By the end of the year, students will be able to form a basic conversation in the language of the deaf. 

ALC consists on 2 reps from each sport offered by our athletic department. Varsity coaches determine their sports reps for the club. The clubs discusses positive leadership and how each rep can be a better leader. The goal is to engage in activities that will allow each of our teams to have the best culture possible.

The AMC serves as a manager “hub” for PHS athletics. This club provides students the opportunity to become more involved with the school, the opportunity to play important roles in the success of PHS athletic teams, and the opportunity to earn varsity letters for multiple sports.

Creative Writing Club is a place for students who enjoy writing all kinds of pieces from Poetry to Short Stories. It is really a time to create and share those pieces with other students who enjoy the same thing.
