The 2017 - 2018 school season has begun, and of course that means lots of materials to be handed out. Continuing with our goals to be as paper free as possible, we have created several documents here online for both students and parents to look over filled with all the information needed for the school year. There are also a couple electronic forms to be filled out as well. Below you will find the PHHS Band Handbook and the calendar for the whole year. Once you have looked at both, please fill out the Handbook Acknowledment form, to indicate that you have looked over the handbook and agree to the parameters it sets forth. If you are new to the PHHS Band Program, please also fill out the New Enrollment Form. Seniors need to take a look at the Senior Account Form, and finally ALL STUDENTS USING A SCHOOL OWNED INSTRUMENT need to fill out the School Owned Instrument Form. Make sure to take the time to look through the documents found below, and be sure to fill out the appropriate forms. Welcome Back!
