PHS ANNOUNCEMENTS

Wednesday, January 11th

CHARACTER TRAIT: Compassion & Kindness

“Kindness is one of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon another. If someone is in need lend them a helping hand. Do not wait for a thank you. True kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of something in return.”

“Just believe in yourself. Even if you don’t, pretend that you do and, at some point, you will.” – Venus Williams

Lunch: Macaroni & Cheese, California Veggies, Cherry Tomatoes, Peach Slices, Hot Roll & Milk

ATTENTION STUDENTS & PARENTS: We are currently having some safety issues with students not using the crosswalks that are painted on the road. Please be reminded to use these areas when exiting/going to vehicles in the mornings/afternoons or crossing the road. It only takes a few more seconds of your time. Remember this is for your safety. Thank you! Officer Lane
