Welcome to Parchment High School, where we strive to create a safe and supportive educational community where our students can thrive academically, socially, and personally.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and everyone did not over eat as I did! Well, I cannot believe how quickly the year is going, it is now December, exams were last week, the first trimester is over and we are starting the new trimester today.
This week we have a few events and activities going on. Tonight is the NHS Induction, rescheduled from November 18th due to inclement weather. The ceremony is being held in the high school commons and will be starting at 7:00 with dessert immediately following the ceremony.
Tomorrow morning is our Academic Letter Breakfast and if your son or daughter has earned this letter and recognition you should be aware at this point. To qualify, students must have earned a 3.5 GPA or above for three consecutive trimesters and maintain a 3.0. So if your student did qualify congratulations! The awards breakfast will start tomorrow, Tuesday December 2nd at 7:50 in the morning. We will have a guest speaker, Ms. Reh Starks, who is a Parchment Alumni and now is a lawyer with Ligget & Ripley law firm. We are excited to have Ms. Stark speak to our students and also to honor and recognize them for their academic efforts!
This Wednesday is the 10th annual Parchment Wassailing from 6-8 pm. Please join us and visit many of businesses in downtown Parchment that will be participating. All of our schools will be represented at the Middle School. Many of the locations will be offering free food and beverages and there will be a free trolley available to help transport you through the different locations throughout Parchment. I hope you can make it!
That is all I have for this week, winter sports will be in full swing next week, there is girls basketball this Tuesday at Paw Paw High School. All three levels will be competing with the freshman starting at 4:15, good luck ladies!
Have a great week!
