PHS is fired up as ignite day approaches

PRINCETON — Princeton Township High School has implemented Ignition, an innovative transition program, for the incoming freshman in this 2014 to 2015 school year.

The program, brought by FOCUS Training, a leadership development company, will bring together new students, upperclassmen, faculty and staff. Princeton hopes that Ignition will help boost student achievement and involvement in school organizations.
Gary Passmore and Renee Kozeal are sponsors of the program at Princeton High School.

Passmore feels very strongly about the positive influence the Ignition program provides for new students. “As a sponsor, I feel this is the best possible program that will help our freshmen be successful from the very first day of their high school careers. They are involved in activities from day one, and they will have the continued support of their mentors to help them stay focused throughout the year,” he stated.

Princeton currently hosts about 525 students that are involved in about 10 different student organizations. Representing a variety of racial and economic backgrounds, Princeton students are future-minded with about sixty percent going on to post-secondary education.

PHS is looking forward to welcoming the incoming class on Tuesday. Through Ignition, students will participate in a unique orientation and mentorship experience.
