Farewell Mr. King - A PHS Giant

More than 500 people crowded into the Elks Lodge on Saturday to pay tribute to a Petaluma High legend. Bill King passed away earlier this month, finally succumbing to cancer. As many in the assembled group mentioned, Mr. King was responsible for training thousands of students in the complexity of agriculture in our county. His Ag Mechanics teams dominated at the state level, winning 14 state championships.


Starting in 1965 at PHS, Mr. King shaped the program, a legacy which his former students, Kim Arntz and Jake Dunn, carry on today. It is one of the traditions of PHS that we are very proud of. On behalf of the PHS community, thank you, Mr. King.

Emergency Drill Week

Special thanks to Tracy for leading us through the various drills last week. These systems have to be tested, reworked, and retested to be sure they are effective. I know it takes time and interruption, but ultimately we are safer and better prepared for those emergencies we hope never come. We know we have much more to do here still, and will continue to refine plans, go deeper with drills, etc.


If you have any questions or ideas that we haven't included in the plans, please forward on to Tracy. Thanks again.

Seasons End!

All good things do come to an end...


Varsity Football travelled to Martinez and competed well into the second half. A couple of defensive stands by Alhambra on 4th down and a talented receiver broke the game open, but we were very proud of Coach Krist and the boys for the effort...


Girls Volleyball took a strong Acalanes team to four sets in the East Bay before exiting the NCS quarters. Coach Brown and the girls had a nice run. Well done!


Girls soccer never stopped competing against a Montgomery Viking team stacked with D1 prospects. After falling behind midway through the first half, Gabby Lemos equalized. Eventually, the Vikings went ahead in the second half, but right up till the end, the Trojans were peppering the Viking goal. Coach Daly should be very proud!
