Teacher appreciation week!

May 7 through May 11 is the official week we honor and celebrate the hard work and commitment of teachers across the United States. PBJHS is extremely fortunate to have both a professional and dedicated group of teachers who are willing to go above and beyond for our students. You don't have to go far in this building to see a teacher doing something extraordinary for our students, and it's because of that we honor and celebrate your perseverance and commitment to ensuring PBJHS students reach their fullest potential. Enjoy your goodies this week, courtesy of our PTO. Thank you for all you do!

Kudos to all the teachers at PBJHS who have been pushing themselves into uncharted territory by trying new things in their classrooms. Kids at PBJHS are spreading the word about the awesome things they are doing in their classrooms, and their enthusiasm toward these engaging and non-traditional activities is infectious. Keep it up, and be sure to share your experiences with your colleagues!

Poem of the week: "Practice what you preach by Ben L. Byer"

It's easier to preach than to practice
It's easier to say than to do.
Most sermons are heard by the many
But taken to heart by the few.
It's easier to cheer than to battle
It's easier to stay than to go.
To drift you but lay down the oars
Go go upstream you must row.
