The spirit of the 12s is alive and well in Peninsula Schools. Robert drives bus 12.
This morning, some of his Discovery Elementary students surprised him with a special signed "Thank You Robert" 12 flag!
We are pleased to announce that PHS DECA has qualified three 30-page Written Community Service Projects to compete at the State DECA Competition in March. All three community service events were held on the campus of Peninsula High School during first semester with support of the entire school. These projects raised over $8,200 for their charities. The projects are:
Charity Water "Walk The Walk"- Jessica Brewster, Kalya Gleza
Project Linus "Coins For Comfort" - Julia Kilcup, Justin Crippen, Emily Mishko
Hoops 4 Hope 2.0 "PHS Staff vs GHHS Staff"- Josie Self, Kaitlin Flanigan, Sophie Alvestad
The State competition is March 5th-7th in Bellevue. Top seven teams at state will advance to the national championships in Orlando, Florida. Best of luck to these amazing PHS students! Go Hawks!
Gig Harbor High School COFIA Club and student volunteers made over 80 'tie-blankets' to be donated to the children at St. Jude Primary School in Rubongi, Uganda. Children in Rubongi live in dire poverty. Even the most basic items, such as a blanket to keep warm, are often not available. Way to go, GHHS!
