What Do We Do Next?
The PHS Community:
Over this long weekend, I had some time on Saturday to play tennis with my daughter, spend some time with friends at Dillon Beach on Sunday, and today, go crabbing with two other principals in the Petaluma City School system. The weather was cool but gorgeous, a reminder about the wonderful place we live in.
This weekend, I also did a lot of thinking about the events of last week at Stoneham Douglas High School. I went on their school website where images of typical school life much like ours at Petaluma High were displayed - academic accomplishments, athletic contests, cheerleaders smiling. But for now, there is no normalcy in Parkland. 14 students and 3 staff members lost their lives. Students around the nation are speaking out and organizing, determined not to let the events at Stoneham Douglas fade away. Already, there are announced days of action on March 14th, March 24th, and April 20th.
During the next two weeks, our staff will engage in conversation about how we will respond. Please stay tuned to this space and our website for updates. We need everyone's voice to decide on our next steps. We will continue to do everything we can to educate your children in a safe and secure school. In order to do this, change will be necessary both locally and nationally.
Reminders for upcoming events:
- AP Honors Evening (if your child will be taking an Honors or AP class in 2018-19) THIS THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22nd at 6PM in the Multi Use Room
- We will host Casa Grande in NCS Basketball Tuesday evening at 7PM.
- The grading period ends on Thursday!
Have a great week!
