October Teacher Highlights


High School – Krystal Oh

Mrs Oh has created the PPHS Book Chat Wiki…

This is where students will be posting their DEAR responses, as well as their peer responses every other week. They will get 15 points for their own posting and 5 points for each of their 2 peer responses. This as an ongoing dialogue/discussion about the books we’re reading.

In addition to the Pleasant Plains High School “Acceptable Use of Computers” policy (Student Handbook), students are also expected to adhere to the following policies:

  • Students are expected to use school appropriate language when posting and commenting on this site.
  • For safety purposes, students are to refrain from posting anything that refers to their last names, phone numbers, or street addresses.
  • Students are expected to maintain respect when leaving comments to other students and Mrs. Oh. Constructive criticism is welcomed, but bullying and/or spiteful comments are unacceptable.
