Porter-Gaud, We know you love Ted Richardson as much as we do. We've spent many days with him in Hawaii, visiting Florence at her grave. Many of you had classes from him, gave him a hug at the flag pole, or went on a trip with him to the Pacific. He's told me many times how blessed he was to work at such a great school. Watch this video, and remember a man who loved his wife, his God, his Marine Corps, and his school:
Virtual Reality apps created by my Porter-Gaud High School senior CS students using Unity for SteamVR. They tested them using HP & Lenovo Windows Mixed Reality Headsets. They each created at least 2 3D models themselves using Maya and imported the other models from the Unity Store and/or remix3d.com. They also created at least one sound effect themselves using Audacity. They coded the interactions using C# in Visual Studio. https://youtu.be/xddytj0hVZU
PG proud! Dante Smith scored two touchdowns for the Citadel against Alabama! Way to go, Dante!😍
Twins Day
I am writing this to reach out to Teacher Laura Orvin and a former student Sarah (Last name withheld). I am a retired Firefighter from New Jersey. I recently visited the 911 Momorial Museum and was incredibly moved seeing your thoughtful artwork. I responded to assist the FDNY on that morning and Sarah's was the first note I read, tears flowed. My two daughters we both similar ages then, Second and Fourth Grades. I felt like I was reading a note from them especially because my Sara was at the memorial with me when I was reading it. There is so much more I could write here, but I just wanted you all to know how much I appreciate what you did back then, you helped more than you may realize.

Fellow parents of Porter Gaud students... is there a rain jacket that is available with the Porter Gaud logo? I've noticed a few students with black rain jackets, but I wasn't sure if they had the PG logo on them or not. I'd like to know where I can purchase them for my two kiddos please 😊. They are NOT available via the Lands End site.
