We look forward to engaging every student in a challenging and relevant curriculum, while fostering an environment of respect and support. We hope you had an exciting summer and are ready to continue the Porter tradition of excellence!
Please visit the Porter’s website www.pwcs.edu/porter for information. The website provides you with a wealth of information including: 8th grade supply list, 8th grade Summer Reading list, and uniform policy. Students new to Porter this fall are invited to orientation and all students are welcome to our “Teacher Meet & Greet” event. Please take some time to review these items and mark your calendars.
Studies show that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the strongest indicators of student achievement. We look forward to working together with parent volunteers and appre- ciate your time and interest. Thank you for the partnership in your child’s education.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact us via email or call the school. Once again, welcome to 8th grade. Let’s work together to make this a great year! Go Patriots!!
