As we continue to focus on campus enhancements, our goal this year is to raise funds for a new, state of the art sound system for the gymnasium. The current system is antiquated and provides poor sound quality. A new system will allow for an enhanced audio experience during several multi-purpose academic forums such as assemblies, rallies and guest speakers, which will be enjoyed by all of our 2,000 students.
The PDHS Foundation provided every classroom and large gathering place with a five-gallon bucket stuffed with emergency supplies. In the event of a lock-down, lock-in, evacuation, or other emergency, students and teachers will have ready access to basic essentials while remaining securely in place. The PDHS Foundation restocks and refreshes supplies every year as needed.
The PDHS Foundation’s fundraising efforts enabled the purchase of over a dozen benches and tables for outdoor seating, for placement in the areas where students naturally congregate during lunchtime. More comfort = less stress = improved learning!
A campus-wide benefit, funded by the PDHS Foundation. TurnItIn provides numerous benefits to aid student instruction, including plagiarism detection and computer-generated editing suggestions for draft papers. Our teachers report that student writing improvement is noticeable since implementing TurnItIn at PDHS.
ONE-WAY VISION SAFETY
Enhancing the safety of students while also beautifying the PDHS campus, PDHS Foundation is working towards the installation of window films that allow students and teachers to see outside of their windows without allowing a line of sight into the rooms.
