ATTENTION SENIORS:

Senior teachers, please please please encourage your students to get their photographs taken for the Inside Out Project - a global street art project coming to PHS this spring! Our theme is "The Many Faces of Pennsbury: Visualizing Individuality" and we want to get as many students as we can to participate - help us celebrate them and our school community! Seniors can contact Ms. Weber or stop by the Video Production Studio (Room 232 in PHS EAST) during the end of D period or directly after school on Wednesday Jan 12 or Thursday Jan 13. We have QR codes that directly link to the permission slip in room 232 to streamline the process- the more students, the merrier! More about the project: The photographs will be part of a temporary installation on the walls of the pool house. These huge, large scale black and white portrait photographs will reflect our communities unique differences while reinforcing the concept that we are all human. It’s about celebrating people - specifically, the upcoming graduating class of 2022! To find out more about this project go to https://www.insideoutproject.net/ or contact Ms. Weber at mweber@pennsburysd.org!
