The Portage Central Choirs and Orchestras will present their December Concert on Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 7:00 PM, in the Portage Central High School Auditorium. The concert will feature seasonal favorites, as well as the Masterwork Vespers K. 339 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.  The work will be performed by the Chamber Singers, Concert Choir, and Chamber Orchestra and will feature Portage Central Alumni soprano Lisa Borik '03 as well as WMU vocal performance majors mezzo-soprano Alicia Renney, tenor Matthew Gifford, and bass Joseph Johnson.  Lisa, daughter of Portage Central Choral Director Cindy Hunter, currently resides in Houston, Texas where she is on the faculty at Lone Star College - Montgomery, and is in the Doctoral program in Vocal Performance at University of Houston. The performance of the Mozart Vespers is made possible in part through a generous grant form Education for the Arts and the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation. Tickets for the concert are available at the door for $3.00 each or $10.00 per family, whichever is less.  Please join us for this festive concert!

Listen up students--important ACT information:  We are once again announcing that students have free access to ACT's online test prep website.  Normally you students would have to pay a fee to gain access to this website, but our GREAT PTO has given our school a gift and purchased this for us.  Letters have been mailed home to all of our 9th-11th graders that give you login instructions, and how to navigate the website.  Juniors especially-this is an awesome way to start NOW to prepare for the ACT, which you will be taking here at PCHS next March.  And you sophomores and freshmen, we recommend you login and begin to prepare as well, as you will be taking the ACT Aspire test in the spring.  So check the mail at home, and hang onto those login instructions, but if you need help, please see Mr. Phillips in the Study Lab.  Studies have shown that the more you prepare for the ACT ahead of time, the better you will do!

The new Skyward Family Portal is now open.  Thanks for your patience as it has taken us a little while to get things up and running, so that you and your son or daughter can look at grades, attendance and a host of other important things. If you have any questions on how to use this online tool, take a look at this website: It has a really useful FAQ as well as instructions for use of the portal.Voluntary Student insurance is now available.  Find out more here.

If your son or daughter is going to be away from school just a few minutes or all day, thanks for keeping us in the loop!
