Principal's Message

Dear PHE families,

Welcome to the Portola Hills Elementary (PHE) website. Several of our teachers have changed classrooms and grade levels this school year. Please take a moment to check out our teachers and websites page.

This year we are implementing a new English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum from Benchmark Advanced. This curriculum will help our students practice Citing claims, look for Evidence and provide their Reasoning (CER).

This school year we will be continuing the Positive Behavior Inventory Systems (PBIS) program that we began in the Spring of 2017. This program was designed to increase and reward positive student behavior at monthly PBIS assemblies.

The PHE Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) Lab continues to go and evolve. Mrs. Chan has spent the summer planning new and exciting learning opportunities from our PHE Explorers. Students will continue to engage in hands on, minds on science lessons that incorporate math and engineering. The "Arts" part of STEAM is well cover by "Dance with Dawn". Both of these wonderful programs are provided by our PHE PTA who fundraises throughout the school year to provide these engaging programs.

Please follow us through social media at PHEexplorers on Twitter and pheexplorers on Instagram.

Go Explorers!

Dr. Ledoux
