    • Cocoa & Cram
    • Week of Change

    Students take advantage of Cocoa & Cram
    PHS students were able to take advantage of a unique opportunity before semester exams in January.  Many students showed up for Renaissance’s third annual Cocoa & Cram event.  Teachers and student mentors were on hand to offer study tips and explain key concepts.  Of course, there was plenty of cocoa, too!  From left, students Emily Matz, Carrie Coy and Marrin Holliday work alongside English teacher Samantha Fettig during Renaissance’s “Cocoa & Cram” event before semester exams.  

    PHS students "Caught Being Kind"

    Twenty-one students were “Caught Being Kind” during a recent Renaissance recognition. Staff members nominated students they noticed doing something good – whether it was helping a fellow student or picking up litter in the hallways.  In every case, the student acted out of kindness without seeking any reward or recognition.  PHS Renaissance was happy to reward these 21 students with a treat from Johan’s.  Back row, from left:  Courtney Coveyou, Brittany Lightfoot, Spencer Goodrich, Brooke LaBlance, Devon Schildge, Connor Ingleson and Joe LeBlanc.  Middle row, from left:  Jordan Marihugh, Jacob Delacruz, Nikki Schlueter, Jacalyn Webster, Dana Reynolds and Jacob Foucault.  Front row, from left:  James Huntman, Rodnie Rutterbush, Alex Gutowski and Eric Hoffman.  Not pictured:  BJ Chatterson, Sean Cross, Paige Levitte and Kelly Norberg.
