    ASVAB Career Exploration Test

    ASVAB Logo

    On February 10 PHS will administer the ASVAB Career Exploration Test. The purpose of this test is to help students identify their skills and aptitude for different professions.

    The ASVAB assessment will help you: 

    • Learn about yourself and the world of work

    • Explore occupations in line with your interests and skills

    • Develop an effective strategy to realize your career and education goals

    Each student will receive individualized results and tools to help them further explore careers inline with their interests and aptitude.

    The ASVAB is a military test, but your scores WILL NOT be released to the military unless you tell us to release the scores.

    If you are interested in taking the ASVAB you must register by February 1.  You can register here: https://forms.gle/1nPy9tpHWG3kkJe3A

    Comparing Muscle Anatomy

    Students in Mr. Mike Bruening's Honors Anatomy and Physiology class spent time this week dissecting mink in order to identify muscles of the body.  The purpose of this activity is to use comparative anatomy to not only see what human muscles would look like, but also to discuss the physiology or function of each muscle.

    PHS Students Researchers in the Youth Built Change Collaborative

    In December, the 2020 -2021 cohort of students in the Youth Bult Change Collaborative present their project proposals to their stakeholders at the University of Cincinnati.  The Youth Built Change Collaborative is a research class funded by a grant from the National Institute of Health and is taught in conjunction with Manchester High School in order to compare issues with substance abuse in a rural vs urban setting.  This year presentations take place virtually in Zoom meetings.

    This year's research topics include: "Does involvement in sports deter drug use?", "How can isolation lead to drug use?", and "Do programs like DARE really stop kids from using drugs?"

     

    The following students are participating in the class this year and will br presenting their research on May 12, 2021:

    Jack Betz, Molly Cannon, Londondon Dennie, Jasmine Dunigan, Mariah Ellington, AnthonyFreson, Derrick Frierson, Alyssa Hardman, Kyra Johnson, Taryn Jones, Diya Patel, Eshan Shah, Ornella Siakam, Madelyn Sherwood, David Trinh, Cole Walker, Kendall Wilson and Janiyah Wright-Willingham

    Health Classes learn the Importance of Proper Hand Washing

    Mrs. Breitholle-Quigley's Health classes learned the importance of proper handwashing with their own experiments during her classes. They put five individual slices of bread in plastic zip bags. One was untouched. One was touched by a student with dirty hands. One was touched by a student with freshly washed hands with soap and water. One was touched with hands that used hand sanitizer and the last one was rubbed all over the surfaces of a student's Chromebook.

    The City of Sharonville Recognizes Princeton Business Students

    Press Release DECA: The City of Sharonville Recognizes Princeton Business Students

     

    Students in the Princeton City School District DECA Club are being recognized by the City of Sharonville with a proclamation that November 10, 2020, is DECA Day in the city. 

     

    “We want to take this opportunity to applaud their work in finding ways to connect and build our local business community,” Mayor Kevin Hardman states. “Princeton students involved in DECA are leaders throughout the school as members of the student council, National Honor Society, Key Club, athletic teams, orchestra, band, and choir. We felt compelled to recognize these students, and I am grateful that we are able to do so with this proclamation.” 

     

    DECA is an association whose mission is to prepare emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management. DECA enhances the co-curricular education of members by providing authentic, experiential learning methods to prepare members for college and careers.

     

    “At Princeton, DECA students are empowered through experience to provide effective leadership through goal-setting, consensus building, and project implementation,” explains Tom Burton, superintendent of the district. “Valuing competence, innovation, integrity, and teamwork is key. We know that these qualities enhance our efforts of empowering each student for college, career, and life success.” 

     

    Annually, DECA students attend competitions on the local, district, and state levels. Eleven PHS students qualified to attend the DECA state competition last year, with six placing in the top 10 of their event. At competitions, students are asked to solve a real-world problem in the form of role-play. 

     

    DECA members put their knowledge into action through rigorous project-based activities that require creative solutions with practical outcomes. Partnerships with businesses at local and broader levels provide DECA members with realistic insight into industry and help promote meaningful, relevant learning. 

     

    “Just as it is in our global economy, a spark of competition drives DECA members to excel and improve their performance,” explains Rebecca McCowan, DECA advisor, and business teacher. “The participating students are ambitious, high-achieving leaders equipped to conquer the challenges of their aspirations. Recognizing the benefit of service and responsibility to the community, DECA members continually impact and improve their local and broader communities. DECA members are poised professionals with ethics, integrity, and high standards.”

     

    Princeton DECA students have also participated in the Business and Community Partner Breakfast, which is held quarterly at Princeton High School since it began in 2017. Students help set up tables, greet and sign in guests, and participate in public speaking during the breakfast. This year the students are taking a more active role in planning, marketing, creating content, and running the virtual event.

     

    Senior Janiyah Wright-Willingham has been part of the club since her freshman year. “We have helped with numerous activities in our elementary schools, such as helping them carve pumpkins and worked at carnivals,” she explains.  “DECA members are very active in the school. We even managed the Viking Spirit Shop and hosted a free throw contest during halftime of basketball games.”

     

    During the 2017-2018 school year, a business program was brought to Princeton High School (PHS) in partnership with Great Oaks Career Campuses. This also marked the beginning of DECA at PHS. Students enrolled in the business program are members of DECA as well; it is a co-curricular club. 

     

    Princeton DECA had 167 members in 2019-2020. Under normal circumstances numbers would have been similar this year; however, due to the current hybrid and remote learning schedule this year, the district currently has 74 members in the award-winning club.

    Second Quarter Attendance

    Dear Princeton Families,

     

    Welcome to the Second Quarter! The first quarter of this school year was quite unique and we thank our students, staff, and parents/guardians for your flexibility.  The second quarter may bring new challenges, but working together we can continue to live our mission of empowering each student for college, career, and life success.  

     

    We will be implementing the following attendance updates in an effort to increase student academic achievement and participation.

     

    Attendance for FULL REMOTE Students:

    • Students must participate in live sessions (synchronous learning) for English (Reading), Math, Science, Social Studies and elective classes
    • Teachers will take attendance during live sessions
    • Parents and/or students must contact teachers with a reason if they cannot attend live sessions
    • If the recording is viewed in lieu of the live session, a teacher assignment must be completed 
    • Failure to participate in live sessions will result in up to two absences for the week if the teacher receives no communication from the parent or student
    • Independent work (asynchronous learning) must also be submitted to reach full attendance for the week

     

    Attendance for Scarlet/Gray AT HOME Learning weeks:

    • Student must complete work daily as assigned by teacher
    • Teacher will grade work and provide feedback to students’ weekly
    • Secondary teachers will submit at least two assignments in the grade book weekly
    • Live learning sessions will be offered at all levels during the afternoon and students with technology are required to attend.

     

    Students who fail to meet academic expectations will be required to attend our summer school program.  Students who fail to meet attendance requirements may have truancy charges filed.  It is critical that parents communicate with their child’s teacher(s) and the school so that we can provide interventions to help with remote and at-home learning.

     

    Please contact your child’s building principal, counselor, or teacher with questions regarding student performance during the first quarter and the support that is available.

    Chromebook Care and your Student

    Does your student have a Princeton Chromebook device? 

    Keeping their Chromebook device clean is more important than ever!

    Use a soft, moist disinfectant wipe followed by a soft drying cloth. You can lightly wipe the keyboard to remove dust and germs.

    Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners directly on the device. 

    Also, periodically, check your student's device . If the device is dropped, the screen will break.  Your student will be assessed a fee for repairs.

    Your student's device is an important component to their educational success.  If they have Chromebook issues, contact:

    Mrs. Zinnecker at 864-1552 ~PHS GRID

    chromebook Zooms/Google Meets in Google Classroom, parents and their participation

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    Each year pictures and videos of students are often taken for use in district publications, press releases, school/district websites and/or as an instructional resource during remote learning activities (i.e. zoom or google meets live sessions).  If a parent, guardian, or student does not want to be photographed or videotaped for these purposes, please contact the building or grade level principals.  We will be happy to clarify any questions you may have and/or accommodate your request to not have your child photographed or videotaped.

    Also, we encourage parents to be actively involved in their child’s remote learning experience and hope that you regularly connect with teachers so that your child has a well-rounded education.  We do ask that parents refrain from participating in live sessions.  The sessions are meant for the students and parent/teacher contact should occur outside of live instructional time.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding of this request.

    Lastly, taking attendance for remote learning is new for us this year.  There are expectations set by the state that require schools to take attendance even for those students learning at home.  Students who fail to engage in learning at home will be referred to the administration for chronic absenteeism which we would like to prevent if at all possible.  We ask that if your child is not able to participate in remote learning that you notify the school so that we can mark attendance accordingly.  We will be using the same procedure that is utilized in our traditional setting.  Please contact the school if you have questions regarding attendance.  

    Sincerely,

    Tonya West Wright

    Supporting Young Minds of All Kinds.
    We all know that this upcoming school year is going to be different than any other, and that families have to adjust to big changes, such as how best to support learning from home. One of the Library’s areas of focus in our Strategic Plan is student success. We’re committed to helping young people have the resources and supports they need to succeed in school and prepare for post-secondary education, training, careers, and life. Besides library cards and access to our eResources 24/7, we can also support students with their remote learning by providing WiFi access, computers/laptops, and access to library staff to provide assistance. Here’s some important information:
     
    In-person
    Kids learning remotely, and their families, are welcome to visit any of our 41 locations during all open hours, Mon. – Sat., 10am to 6pm. 
    • At the downtown Main Library we have designated a space on the second floor for homework help for middle and high schoolers, which will be available beginning Aug. 24. We can accommodate up to 24 students at a time. 
      • To reserve a space students should call 513.369.6900. 
      • Sessions are 2 hours in length and are limited to 1 session per student per day.
      • There will be 3 sessions each weekday: Monday – Friday
        • 10AM – 12PM
        • 1PM – 3PM
        • 4PM – 6PM.
    • We do still have safety protocols in place, including requiring face coverings, reduced occupancy levels, and limits on the length a customer can stay. 
    • Right now, we are working to improve our outdoor spaces and meeting rooms at many of our locations so we can support students who need homework help, access to WiFi or devices, or assistance with their own device. 
    • We intend to use the first few weeks of school to learn what the demand is for student use of our facilities and as capacity allows, and we may try additional strategies like adding student-only hours in the evenings, and adjusting occupancy levels, if the spread of COVID-19 continues to improve in our county. 
     
    Online
    Homework HelpNow
    • Anyone with a library card can use our Homework HelpNow resource, which provides a variety of supports to students, including live homework assistance, study tools, virtual study rooms and even free assistance with filling out the financial aid form for college (FAFSA). 
    • Check out this brief video to learn more about this great resource.
