First Day: Looking Forward To An Exciting New Year!
August 25th marked the first day of the 2014-2015 school year here at Porter Ridge and was one filled with the usual chaos of freshmen finding their classes and massive traffic jams at Grand Central. Despite that, there was also the crisp sense of a new school year.
