We are so happy to welcome you to The Potter's House Academy! We look forward to a productive partnership with PHA parents and families. It is recognized that to be successful, our children need support from both home and school.
We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring they attend school daily, arrive on time, and are ready for the day’s activities.
To maintain a balanced partnership, we ask that you please read your parent handbook for all of PHA"s policies and procedures.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the office. In addition, we have provided you with a list of essential items that you will need to know about our programs.
School supplies are essential tools that facilitate students' learning. They range from basic items like pencils and notebooks to specialized resources like calculators and art supplies. These tools enable students to engage effectively with their coursework, organize their thoughts, and express their creativity, thus playing a crucial role in a successful educational journey.
Volunteer at PHA
Parent volunteers are invaluable assets to any educational environment. They contribute their time and skills to support classroom activities, school events, and various programs. As active participants in their children's education, parent volunteers foster a strong community spirit and bridge the gap between home and school. Their involvement enhances the learning experience for all students and is a testament to the collaborative effort required for educational success.
We take pride in our school uniforms at Potter's House Academy, as they reflect our spirit of unity and academic focus. Our uniforms can be purchased from Foskett Sports, available at https://foskettsports.com. For Elementary students, the uniform consists of a black polo, khaki bottoms (which can be pants, shorts, a skirt, or a dress), and black shoes. Middle School students should wear a yellow polo, black bottoms, and black shoes. High School students are required to don a blue polo, black bottoms, and shoes that are either black or white. We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to our dress code, which fosters an environment of respect and focus on learning.
