Seniors and parents,

It’s that time!  Graduation is around the corner, and Mrs. Copley would like to create a slideshow to run the hour before the ceremony starts. The slideshow will have the theme of “then and now,” and, thus, we will need a baby (birth to age 4ish) picture and a current picture.  They can be either digital files or printed pictures or a combination of both. Send digital files to and printed photos to Mrs. Copley, PWHS librarian. Because it takes a considerable amount of time to scan and save over two hundred image files, all pictures must be submitted to Mrs. Copley by Friday, May 4.  

Note: You may come back to pick up any printed photos after May 11 or send a self-addressed and stamped envelope for them to be returned by mail. Please be sure to label any printed baby photo.

Senior Kaelee Leavitt signed a letter of intent to play soccer at Kentucky Christian University on March 28, 2018. Leavitt will be a second generation soccer player for KCU, following in the footsteps of her father.
