Welcome Back, Porter Ridge Pirates!

Student Council painted the rock to welcome back all Pirates to Porter Ridge!

The 2014-2015 school year welcomes many changes for Porter Ridge High School! From new students, new teachers, and new course offerings to a new principal! This year Dr. Bashawn Harris will take the helm at Porter Ridge High and anticipates a successful year for all students.

When asked about his educational philosophy, Dr. Harris replied, "I want to develop lifelong learners that achieve academically, behave appropriately and contribute positively.  I also believe that every student matters. Learning is required and failure is not an option!"

Teachers and students have spent the last week preparing classrooms, decorating walls and setting up plans for the 2014-2015 school year.  The school is ready and will welcome students Monday, August 25th.  

So as athletic seasons begin, club events are planned and rigorous learning starts, come out and support the Pirates this year!
