600th Win
Coach Bill Russell,
on your 600th career victory!
We would like to congratulate Coach Russell on his 600th win!  Coach Russell is in his 26th year as a head girls’ basketball coach.  His record is 600 wins and 228 losses.  This year’s seniors have only lost 9 times in grades 7-12 and only 1 time at home! He has been the division Coach of the Year 14 times and has carried his teams to state 10 out of 25 years! Coach Russell’s teams have won 13 division titles, have been North State Runner-up 5 times and North State Champions 4 times and have won State 2 times and were runner-up 3 other times.  We are looking forward to another State Tournament appearance this year as well as bringing our trophy home!

PHS Algebra Activity
The Algebra 1 Companion Classes at Pontotoc High School completed Part 1 of a Getting Career Ready Project.  This school year, the 2014 Mississippi College- and Career- Readiness Standards for Mathematics are being used as a guide for helping prepare students for the next grade level and life beyond high school.  The standards being addressed each day in the classroom are designed to expose students to experiences that reflect the value of mathematics, enhance students’ confidence in their ability to do mathematics, and link mathematics to the real-world.
As the end of the first semester neared, the Companion Math classes completed a booklet focusing on students’ interest in a particular career field.  The booklet consisted of a 2-page paper addressing areas such as, job description, employment facts, educational requirements, job outlook, earnings, and what generally happens in a day in the life of the career chosen.  Students also included with the paper a cover page and work cited page.  In addition, the booklet consisted of problems written by and solved by the students as it relates to their chosen career, various types of graphs, research pertaining to money markets as they begin to learn how to make money work for them, and multiple representations of data derived from situations that may occur in the their chosen career.  Each component of the booklet was driven by various standards learned during the semester.  The development of the booklet was both enjoyable and challenging to the students.

PREPS Award!
Pontotoc High School received the prestigious PREPS Value-Added Award for the outstanding work of the administrators, teachers, and students on the performance of the English II subject area test from the 2013-2014 school year.  PHS performed better than the statistical model predicted that it should based on the school's free/reduced lunch percentage.  Mr. Henry, Mrs. Rutledge (PHS Teacher of the Year), and Mrs. Parker, will attend PREPS Award Celebration at the annual conference March 17-19, 2015.  Mrs. Parker-Tutor and Mrs. Rutledge, last year's English II teachers, prepare to celebrate this accomplishment with the other PHS teachers.
