A message from Mr. Brian Silipena, Assistant Principal in Charge of Athletics:
The Board of Education recognizes the value of a program of athletic/activity competition for both boys and girls as an integral part of the total school experience. Game activities and practice sessions provide opportunities to learn the values of competition and good sportsmanship. Programs of athletic/activity competition, both intrascholastic and interscholastic, offer pupils the opportunity to exercise and test their abilities in a context greater and more varied than that offered by the class or school or school district alone, and an opportunity for career and educational development. The Board of Education believes that the goals and objectives of this district are best achieved by a diversity of learning experiences, some of which are more appropriately conducted outside the regular instructional program of the school. The purpose of such extra-curricular activities shall be to develop leadership capacities and good organizational skills, to aid in the socialization of pupils, and to enable pupils to explore a wider range of individual interests than might be available in the regular curricular program.
Thank you for taking the time to navigate through the PTHS athletic website. Please join me in supporting all of our student- athletes and athletic programs by wishing them a safe and successful school year.
