P-H-M’s Communications Department works to not only communicate valuable information to our parents and families through the District and 15 school websites. Through marketing and brand awareness initiatives, P-H-M not only keeps our families informed of all the terrific things taking place all across our District, but we also make the greater community aware of our student and staff accomplishments. The P-H-M audience is engaged and connected to the District through the use of eye catching photos and video storytelling on social media, websites and other digital forms of communication.
