  • Due to a situation that arose at the end of school today, the administration made the decision to cancel all on campus after school activities for Wednesday, January 30,2019.  Through joined investigation with Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office ,  the administration deemed the the possibility of a threat was unsubstantiated.  The safety of our students and our staff is our priority.  We appreciate your patience.  We will have a regular day of school tomorrow, January 31, 2019.

  • Highlights of our PHS Ag. Dept. and FFA Chapter!

    Recently, PHS senior and FFA chapter President, Cheyenne Hano, was interviewed on national television by RFDtv for our FFA chapter being named a top 10 Model of Excellence in the nation. You can watch that video clip here:

    FFA Video Link CHano

    Our students were also recognized at the school board meeting last Tuesday for their many state and national achievements. Video footage from Action News 17 on that is at the link below, and they also recently published a summary in The Daily Star. However, it is a link to Facebook, so you may have to view it from a non-school device for it to open. Footage about Ponchatoula High FFA begins at about 6:00 minutes into the video.


    Finally, Bradley Coleman was pleased to represent Ponchatoula High School and Louisiana at the National Teach Ag Day celebration in Chicago, IL last week. He was invited to share brief remarks about the profession on stage, which was broadcast live nationally. That video can be found here, if you care to watch. If you'll fast-forward, my remarks begin at about 1:23:15 and last only about three minutes.
