It is hard to believe that we are already prepping for Spring Break. Pendleton High School students have been busy in many aspects. Above, students from Honors' Biology 2 class stand holding a nurse shark that is about to be dissected. Mrs. Nirschl's first grade class from Washington came over to watch the dissection and were each able to take a baby shark home with them. PHS students are able to work with these younger students and teach them a bit about the anatomy of a shark and give them some hands-on experience.
PHS students participated in a penny wars drive earlier this month. Through this competition arranged by the Leadership Class, $1,429.37 was raised with the money going to Doernbechers Children's Hospital. Congratulations goes out to Mr. Johnston's class in first place, bringing in $14.29 average per student. They will receive a pizza feed for their donations. Also, the top five classes have the opportunity to give a "Pie in the Face" to other staff for their participation. The classes that are in this category are Mr. Johnston, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Bixler, Mrs. Meighan, and Mrs. Proffitt. This will take place at the next assembly. All of this was done in the effort of giving back to the community. Congratulations to the winners and way to go Buckaroos!!
