Welcome to Mrs. Vaughn's PCHS class website!

Welcome Back Open House video

For a current calendar, class notes, assignments, rubrics, study guides, etc., be sure to check your class Canvas page! That is your best resource for Chemistry & Physical Science. I will not use this website for class, I will exclusively use Canvas. Click HERE to go to Canvas. Your student login is the same as your login to a school computer. Note: Passwords need to be changed at the beginning of every school year! In order to set up the new password or to set up a Parent Portal Account, click HERE. To find out what bus you ride or what time your bus will pick you up in the mornings, click HERE.

For parents: To access your child's Canvas, you will need to create a pairing code for your student's account. Please click HERE for directions to create the pairing code. Once you have the pairing code, you must go to our Canvas page in the next 24 hours, click the "Parent of a Canvas user?" link, fill out the required information (including the pairing code) and click "start participating". If you need to add additional students to your current parent account, then click HERE.

This will be an entirely new school year in many ways, and I'm excited to start it with you! You will notice some changes from last year to this year. I strive to provide you with a fun, meaningful learning experience in Chemistry & Physical Science. To prepare for my class the upcoming school year, the following supply list is suggested:
