PTSC Weekly Update: Winter Break so Soon?

PTSC-Weekly-Update-12-15-14Winter Break so Soon?
Remember those days when summer seemed to last forever and time didn't seem to move so quickly? I can't believe we are already in the last few weeks of our first semester and headed into our winter break. While I believe everyone looks forward to a few days off of school and work--I hope that we can all use this time to reflect on the past year and find things for which we are thankful.

As a result, the student will struggle to get back on track to graduate and will be ill-prepared for either postsecondary schooling or to enter the workforce directly.

One of the most successful strategies to meet such needs at Valparaiso High School started about a decade ago with the formation of the Freshman Academy.

A Spark for Change: What's a Slicer?

sparkforchange rotator2I have lived in La Porte my whole life. The amount of times I have been asked what a Slicer is has reached an astronomical number. Teams have tauntingly chanted it across gyms, and people from places I have visited have innocently inquired about our unique mascot. I would gladly regale others with the story of the local meat slicing company generously donating money to our school, but I feel now I know the reason La Porte has the Slicer mascot.
