    Posted by Kirk Wrinkle at 1/20/2017 6:00:00 PM

    Parents and Guardians:

     The Theatre Department's Winter play opened last night. It is a new comedy by Mark Twain entitled, “Is He Dead”.  Mark Twain’s brilliant, but rarely-seen stage comedy is the hilarious story of a talented young painter named Jean-Francois Millet, who is deeply in love, but deeply in debt. To escape his money woes and become rich and famous, he fakes his own death and masquerades as his ‘country sister’. Now a rich widow, he must find a way to get out of a dress, return to his life, and marry his true love.  Tonight and tomorrow night at 7 pm and also on Saturday, January 21st, a matinee at 2:30 pm in the Pflugerville Fine Arts Center. Tickets are $5 for Students and $8 for Adults and available at the box office an hour prior to each show. 

    Please see below our new "Important Senior Dates" for all of our senior parents.

    There is an opportunity for community input on next year's school calendar.  Please go to http://www.pfisd.net/domain/245 by next Friday, January 27 to provide feedback.  

    Out of soap!  Until next week...

    Parents and Guardians:

    Two weeks down and we now have a three day weekend! Remember that Monday, January 16, is a holiday as we celebrate MLK day.

    Lots going on at PHS this time of year.  Our winter sports are well into their district schedules, the soccer teams are both touting their tournament championships from last week and the spring sports have all begun.  A plug for tonight's game at PHS Panther Gym--the girls basketball team will be taking on undefeated in district Cedar Ridge at 7 pm.  The winner of the game will be in first place!  Come on out and yell for the girls as they continue their journey towards the playoffs!

    Out of soap!  Enjoy your three day weekend!  Until next week...
