Trojan Volleyball Heads Into Last Two Weeks of Season

The Trojan volleyball squad is heading into the last two weeks of the regular season having dropped only one match all season and remaining unbeaten in league so far. This week, the Trojans (14-1, 8-0) visit Sonoma Valley on Tuesday before hosting El Molino on Thursday at the PHS Gym. Be sure to root them on the rest of the way and in the playoffs!

Girls Golf

The PHS Lady Trojans moved to 7-0 on the season with a win over Healdsburg on Thursday. The final stroke total (264 - 304) was the lowest team score of the year! Big shout outs to Maddie Weber and Simone Smith for career lows.

This week, the season rounds out as we host El Molino on Tuesday and visit Sonoma on Thursday. Next Monday, the girls compete in the SCL Tournament as they look for the automatic bid to the NCS Sectional. #gotrojans.

Please Don't Drop Off Students at Museum Gate

Because of the field construction, we have opened the gate off Hinman by the museum to allow for pedestrian students who normally would enter the school via Ellison Field to have an access point to school. This is so these students do not have to walk all the way around to Fair Street or all the way around to the gym entrance. However, it was intended to be a drop off point by vehicle. Hinman has a blind corner and vehicles that are stopped to discharge a passenger may be at risk. PLEASE proceed to Fair Street or at the rear of the school for drop off. Any questions, please email

Skills USA Leadership Conference

On Saturday, October 14th, we will hold our annual Fall Leadership Conference. Student leadership team from all over the region will come to Petaluma High School to find out all of the latest information, ask questions, and kick-off the new year on a positive note. We will hold separate break-out sessions for students and advisers, provide time for Q&A, and present all of the latest materials for your chapter. Morning snacks and light lunch will be provided.
