Summer School Announcement

Washington County Schools students and parents/guardians,

Please review the attached document regarding summer school offerings for elementary, middle, and high school students.

Romans in Appalachia

Inscriptions in stone and bronze are an invaluable source of knowledge about ancient Greece and Rome. John Walker, Patrick Henry's Latin teacher, displays plaster replicas of two such inscriptions in his classroom, and they are the subject "Romans in Appalachia," a note in the latest bulletin of the American Society of Greek and Latin Epigraphy. As Brown University's Professor John Bodel explains, replicas of inscriptions are an excellent means of exposing students to epigraphy, or the study of inscriptions. PHHS is one of only two sites in Virginia (the other being the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts) listed in the U.S. Epigraphy Project's database of Greek and Latin inscriptions.

PHHS Students Visit Emory & Henry's School of Health Sciences

Patrick Henry High School students had the opportunity to visit Emory & Henry’s School of Health Sciences. Students explored nursing program labs that include state-of-the-art high-fidelity patients that replicate real-life symptoms such as flushed skin and altered breathing. Students also met with physical therapy faculty and staff who discussed that students in Emory's programs are currently working with Team USA Paralympic Athletes. Students explored program options for both physical and occupational therapists, utilized tools such as goniometers, and discussed the importance of job shadowing as students prepare for their futures.

Students also cheered on the Emory and Henry Softball team as they played King University. The Rebels were proud to support a PH alum behind home plate!
