Principal's Message

I am proud to announce that Katherine Mervosh, Joseph Korinek and Chris Risnear have been named Commended Students in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.  About 34,000 students are recognized for their exceptional academic promise. These three PTHS students have placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.  We congratulate each of them for demonstrating outstanding potential for academic success.

We will be collecting items for our Veterans Drive now through November 13th. Last year was the largest donation that the Pittsburgh VA has ever received from one group. They were overwhelmed by our support and said that so many gentleman and women veterans were helped.


St. Barbara’s After Party
The After Party offers a Friday night hangout after all Penn Trafford High School home football games. We open the doors to students after halftime and close at midnight. The night includes food and beverages, live music, games, a bonfire, and prizes. It's also just a short walk from Warrior Stadium, which has proved to be an added bonus. Bags are checked at the door, no open containers are allowed inside and adult supervision and security are on hand. |

White-Out Warrior Towels are on sale for $5.00 in the High School Cafeteria October 2 - October 13 during all lunch periods. You can also purchase one in Room 138 or at the Homecoming Game on October 13th at Warrior Stadium.
