Three Weeks to the Next Holiday!
All right, folks, hope the Thanksgiving Break was wonderful! We have a short sprint to the end of the semester - 16 more days of class followed by finals. This is a critical period to finish strong and to encourage your child to stay focused.
Please read on for updates on the Crab Feed, Holiday Cheer (helping out those in need), a request to complete the LCAP survey (closes Nov 30th), sports updates, and various PHS students "in the news." Let's make this the best December of our lives :)
Crab Feed Coming - Help Needed!
The Crab Feed Is Coming!! Save the Date – PHS Athletic Boosters Annual Crab Feed is Saturday, February 3rd, 2018. Plans are under way – we need YOUR help to make this our most successful fundraiser yet.
We’re looking for committee members to help with Silent Auction, check in & out, the bar and Live Auction. If you’ve been looking for a way to help PHS athletics and make a big difference, this is it! The Crab Feed benefits all student athletes and teams. Please come to the Boosters meeting this month or reach out to Phoebe Ellis – firstname.lastname@example.org – or Barb Brooks –email@example.com. This is an incredibly fun evening and our major fundraiser for all PHS sports teams – come be a part of it’s success! Committee members will get first dibs on tickets & tables to the event – don’t miss out!
LCAP Surveys - Please Help!
The survey will be open until Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017. We would like to have as many parents/guardians as possible participate in the survey. The survey is available in both English and Spanish. The survey is also on the PCS website. There are hard copies in the office if you prefer or just click on the links below.
We also need your help in another way. We are looking for two or three PHS parents to represent the school on the LCAP committee. The next meeting is December 5th at the district office. This is important and will ensure PHS has a voice in spending decisions and oversight. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org directly if interested.
Girls and boys soccer is ramping up too with the boys on the road versus American Canyon on Monday evening and the girls on the road at crosstown rival Casa Grande Tuesday evening.
NCS Cross Country results!

Holiday Cheer Gift Card Drive!
Join us in blessing students from Petaluma High School who are in foster care, are classified as homeless or who are socio-economically challenged. Our goal is to get 50 gift cards that will be given to the counseling department to share with these students.
The best gift cards are for Amazon, Target, Visa, Peet's, Jamba Juice, Cold Stone Creamery, In-n-Out, Converse - anything like that! Please know that ANY amount is great. Gift cards will be combined to assure that all the students will have a bright Christmas.
Please drop the gift cards off at Petaluma High School front office in an envelope that says Mrs. Jackson. Let them know it is for the Holiday Cheer program as there is a designated envelope for these gift cards. You can drop them off anytime between now andDecember 7th. Let’s show some extra love and kindness to these amazing students.
