Angel Tree jars have been sent around to the classrooms. This organization helps give children Christmas presents when their parents are otherwise unable to afford it. Last year, PHS raised over $300. Our goal is to beat that. Donate to your first hour class and the winning class will get a surprise on the last day of school before Christmas break. Spread the word and empty out your spare change! Thanks for helping with Bailee Wiley's senior project.
Look through your closets and bring gently used winter coats to donate. The BPA is collecting winter coat donations to give to the SEICAA organization to help local families in need. Your donations may be dropped off in the box by the front doors or in Mrs. Larsen's Room 109 until Thursday, December 17. Please help someone in need this winter.
