Here is message from PBL Choir Director, Mr. Lerch: The High School choir has entered a contest through the WHMS radio station for a local high school choir to sing with the band Foreigner during their final song of the night, "I wanna know what love is". It is a contest where the school with the most votes wins. Here is the link: All voting is done through Facebook. I have asked the station and they couldn't give a date that the voting ends, so if we could get as many people's votes as soon as possible, that would be great!

The PBL School District encourages every student to attend each day of school throughout the school year. We think it's also important to educate families on the difference between "truancy" and "chronic absences." Truancy only counts a student unexcused absences, while chronic absences counts all excused absences, unexcused absences, and suspensions. A student is considered to be a chronic absentee when they miss 17.5 or more days in the entire school year.--

Did you know that as many as one in three students in the country misses 10%, or about 18 days, of the school year? Being in school supports students’ social, emotional and physical well-being, and provides students with opportunities to learn and reach for their dreams. Let’s show up together and get back into the habit of daily attendance!

Welcome Sandra Reuther to the PBL High School Math Department! Sandy is from Portage, Indiana. She graduated from Western Governor's University with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics Education Grades 6-12. Mrs. Reuther spent 10 years as a paraprofessional and is in her 9th year as a teacher. Mrs. Reuther enjoys sharing her love of math with students. She doesn't expect everyone to become mathematicians, but she knows all students can get better at math. She loves riding horses, spending time with family, playing games, and hanging out around campfires. Mrs. Reuther joined the PBL team so her husband could be the pastor at the Covenant Church in town. Mrs. Reuther states, "I talked to the people we met on our visits and everyone said great things about PBL. I decided if everyone liked the school so much it would be a great place to work. I was not wrong: It is great!" We are so glad you are here Mrs. Reuther!
