"Cosmic Adventure" and "Legends of the Night Sky: Perseus and Andromeda" featured at DVT/Planetarium on Wednesday, May 4

The PHM DVT/Planetarium will be presenting Cosmic Adventure and Legends of the Night Sky: Perseus and Andromeda on Wednesday, May 4, at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students and senior citizens and seats can be reserved by visiting the DVT webpage on the PHM Schools website, or tickets can be purchased at the door with cash, check, or card 30 minutes before the show starts.

In Cosmic Adventure, go on an all-ages roller coaster ride from the moon through the universe, our galaxy and our solar system. This high speed adventure will immerse you in some of the most amazing sites in the universe. It will be a ride you will want to take again and again.

Become a Penn Booster !!!!

We truly appreciate your dedication and support of Penn High School. The Penn Booster's main function is to enhance the overall educational experience for the students here at PHS, and we couldn’t do it without you. The Boosters provides resources for our PHS athletic and student groups through various fundraising efforts, including events, sponsorships, donations, concession stand income, and most importantly through our memberships.

Memberships are $10 a year and are open to anyone interested in supporting Penn. Becoming a Booster Member does not mean you have to be on the Booster Board. You can be a representative for your respective athletic or academic team and be the liaison to the Board, or you can just support the Booster program by becoming a member with your $10 donation.


We are also excited to have launched our new Booster website. Please visit us at http://www.pennboosters.org as we continue to connect with the PHM community.


If you are interested in sharing your gifts or talents with the Boosters, we would very much enjoy finding an opportunity for you to do that. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
