Seniors Walk the Walk!

The Class of 2015 have been excellent role models for the younger students of the school district.  To put more emphasis on that statement,  the Class of 2015 --in cap and gown-- walked the halls of Southern Elementary, Northern Elementary, and Sharp Middle School on Monday, June 1.  The "Senior Walk" not only shared with the younger students the importance of getting College and Career Ready, but allowed the grads to share their success and gave their former teachers a proud moment of accomplishment.  This was the first year for the Senior Walk but hopefully an annual tradition has been started  at PHS.  Congratulations Class of 2015!
