PHS Staff Update
January 20th, 2015
Welcome Back from a Three Day Weekend!
(Near the bottom of this update is a little audio clip from This American Life (thank you, Debi, for passing this on). If you can, take a listen to the clip (about 6 min long) which focuses on expectations. It's pretty cool! (Click on the link, then on Launch Player to start the audio). We'll talk about this at an upcoming staff meeting.
Cheerleaders Dominate at Regionals, Shine at Awards Night
Cheer also had their awards evening Sunday night. All the girls turned out in their formal wear to celebrate superb accomplishments and hard work. Thanks to all the parents who decorated the multi and to Christina Davis for leading the program. AD Kathryn Teeter was there setting up at 4:30 and breaking it all down at 8:30. Thanks to all who make out programs a success!
8th Grade Family Night - PHS Tours and Information (CLHS - Denny!)
We will be presenting our 8th Grade Family Night and School Tour this Thursday, January 22nd. The evening will begin at 6PM with a very short presentation in the Multi, followed by school tours led by ASB students and staff. Debi is organizing and has developed a nice tour schedule shared at PAC. She will remind us of the specifics this week as we gear up for Thursday.
Thursday afternoon is also the recognition for our Teacher of the Year, Denny Plyler, up in Healdsburg. Some of you may be heading up there to represent. I asked that Denny would be up first so that those of us who must return for 8th Grade NIght can make it back. The event starts at 4PM at Villa Chanticleer. See David or Krista for more info!
LumaCon is Wildly Successful
The success of the event reminds us how critical our libraries and the librarians who run them are to our school and broader community. They can see the joy of reading and tools of research from an unique perspective. The city of Petaluma and PHS are blessed to have such excellence in our midst! LumaCon is sure to continue and grow even further next year. Thanks, Connie, for being a visionary and having the energy to create these kinds of events!
Online Registration Continues
Wild applause for our counselors and counseling staff for stepping into the unknown of online registration! So far, so good!
