    The TPSS Student Dress Code Policy is being changed so that when our students return from the holidays in January 2015, they will be allowed to wear heavy coats or jackets of any color or style outside of the school classroom/building. Please keep in mind that the coats or jackets may not have inappropriate insignia, logos, or language, and that dusters or trench coats may not be worn.  Click here to read the letter from Superintendent Mark Kolwe with more details about this change in Dress Code Policy.

  • PHS Recycled Christmas Tree
     
    Shane Kraft's AP Environmental Science students at Ponchatoula High School proudly display their Recycled Christmas Tree and Ornament Project.  The tree is made from Coke/Diet Coke bottles stuffed with tulle from PHS spirit week tutus. The students made their ornaments at home using things that they had on hand (glue, glitter, paint from previous projects) with the idea of using something that they would normally throw away.

  • REMS Young Ladies and Gentelmen Society

     
    The Young Ladies and Gentlemen Society at Roseland Montessori visited a fellow Magnet school today to learn about the culinary arts and the robotic programs. Students met with Hammond High School Magnet ProStart members to learn proper kitchen cleanliness such as washing hands for food prep.  Then they used their artistic abilities as pastry chefs to decorate gingerbread cookies made by the ProStart team.  The students in the Robotics program also welcomed the REMS students into their classroom where they showed how to use Engineering to construct a catapult, which they later used to launch marshmallows.  In addition to their catapult constructions, the students were also given a demonstration of the robot the HHS team built for the latest robotic competition.  After the visit at Hammond High Magnet, the Society members gathered at Rock's Cafe in Amite where they were given a table etiquette lesson as they were served lunch.  REMS offers much gratitude to Hammond High Magnet teachers Angelina Drago, Shelly Gaydos, as well as the students in their programs, and Rock's Cafe for arranging this opportunity for the Young Ladies and Gentlemen Society members as they continue to learn the skills needed to be respectful and responsible members of a community.  It was a great day of collaboration between two of the many successful programs that are a part of the Magnet programs in the Tangipahoa Parish School System.   Pictured above is Tristan Ackerman showing off his decorated cookie.
