October is Italian Culture and Heritage month

and every year, the President of the United States signs a Proclamation declaring it so. 

Below is an excerpt of Proclamation 8585 written by former American president, Barack Obama in 2010. It highlights the achievements of Italian Americans and their immeasurable contributions to the creation and endurance of our great nation.
 

Former President Obama said:

In the five centuries since Christopher Columbus, a son of Genoa, Italy, first set sail across the Atlantic Ocean, countless individuals have followed the course he charted to seek a new life in America. Since that time, generations of Italian Americans have helped shape our society and steer the course of our history.
 

Bound by enduring values of faith and family, Italian Americans have flourished in all areas of our public and economic life while preserving their proud Italian traditions. Upon arrival in the United States, the Italian American community faced racial, social, and religious discrimination. Yet, Italian Americans have persevered with hope and hard work to reach for the American dream and helped build our great country. As proud service members, they have also defended the liberty and integrity of the United States since the Revolutionary War.
 

Today, the legacy of these intrepid immigrants is found in the millions of American men, women, and children of Italian descent who strengthen and enrich our country. Italian Americans operate thriving businesses, teach our children, serve at all levels of government, and succeed in myriad occupations. Drawing on the courage and principles of their forebears, they lead in every facet of American life, dedicating their knowledge and skills to the growth of our country.

 


PMHS HEALTH & SAFETY

We are each responsible for one another's health. As the weather gets colder, please keep the following important health precautions in mind:

  • If you are not feeling well, and experiencing any symptoms listed on the daily health questionnaire, it is best to stay home.

  • If you are home sick, please make sure your parent or guardian contacts the main office to let the school know, and follows up with any requirements from the school, including seeing a Doctor for follow up.

While in school: 

  • Desk Guards must continue to be used
  • Masks must be worn throughout the day (recognizing the need for brief, socially distanced mask breaks outside)
  • You should be social distancing at all times.
