  The PHS athletic department, ABC and WE DAY want to invite you to a "football" game on Thursday March 10th at 4:30 p.m. WHICH WILL BE FILMED FOR TV!!!!  In 2015 Selena Gomez hosted the ABC broadcast of WE DAY and brought in over three million viewers by tackling big topics such as gun violence, environmental issues, and the importance of giving back. Please join us in showcasing our very own - Reilly Fox. With Reilly's nonchalant approach to being on the football team WE DAY thought she was the perfect example of a girl KICKING butt. On March 10th we will be recreating a football game for cameras to see Reilly, the team, and the school in action. So get your Paschal High colors on and come out on the 10th to help make TV history.

Do you have a daughter who loves science and math?
Is she interested in exploring options in STEM careers?  Design Connect Create is an immersive hands on experience for young women to explore and have fun with physics. Students form a deep understanding and build confidence to move forward in science knowing they will be successful. Labs, guest speakers, interactive problem solving and engineering challenges fill our day as we explore topics in physics and engineering. This physics camp is open to girls taking any AP Physics course for the first time next year.  The FWISD site for the camp is Paschal High School from June 6 - 17.  Check out their website for more information or email Linda Antinone, the Paschal Mathematics Department Chair and AP Physics teacher at this address

Foreign exchange students for the 2016-2017 school year are in need of kind and loving families here in Fort Worth.  Would your family like to host a student who would attend Paschal High School?  Exchange students come from all over the world - Switzerland, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, China, Japan and more! Host families like yours are needed to provide safe, loving homes to our students. 

You would supply:
A bed (sharing a room with a same sex sibling is fine)
Three meals a day
Transportation to/from school and activities (sports, church, doctors)

Exchange students have insurance, speak English, have strong grades and bring their own money to cover their expenses. They arrive in August and stay until school concludes in June.

We encourage you to also involve your family, friends and neighbors to help take them places. Once the student arrives, they will make friends easily through clubs, sports and church. NWSE offers trips for them to participate in, if they would like to do so.

If you would like to host...check out the online application here.

You will need to upload 5 photos with your application:
1. Front of house in daytime
2. Kitchen
3. Bath
4, Students bedroom (showing bed)
5. Students bathroom (showing toilet)

If you have extra room and would love to explore another culture, consider hosting an exchange student!

In the recent canned food drive we received approximately 900 cans for the Battered Women's Foundation of Fort Worth.  Many thanks for all the support from parents, students, teachers, staff, and administration.  The NHS members were certainly involved in making posters, posting signs, contributing cans, and helping to load the cans for transport.  Thanks also to Jodi Gibbs for coming up with idea, and to Michael Gibbs for transporting the bulk of the cans.

Sponsors Needed 
for PIP Talks
Paschal is excited to announce the return of PIP TALKS.  This program is conducted in partnership with TCU and allows students to present research on a topic of their choosing.  Last year over 300 students participated, resulting in 150 presentations.  Students have gone on to present at university academic conferences as well as use their research for scholarship proposals. 
We are currently looking for individual and corporate sponsors to provide awards and scholarships for the participants and the winning presentations.  If you are interested in partnering with us please contact Kristen Browning at

Parents, grandparents, educators, students, neighbors and community leaders are all essential members of the Paschal family. Together, through PTA, we provide support for our school, and also a powerful and effective voice for all children in our community. Thank you to all of our current members!
