Parent Center

Welcome to PHMS Parent and Family Center
Here at the parent and family center, we aim to boost parent and family engagement for the overall success of our students. Our goal is to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere where you can come to learn and network with other parents. We have resources, hold free monthly parent information workshops, and provide a space for all volunteers to help prepare for school activities.
You can help us create meaningful workshops by filling out a workshop survey through the links below. Thank you in advance for your input!
