Two PHS students and Mr. Dinkel were selected by Oregon UAS Future Farm to attend a multi-day UAS training in December that prepares them for the FAA commercial UAS certification. They are receiving valuable instruction from industry professionals who work in drone engineering, piloting, robotics, imaging, data interpretation, test range management, operations, and more. There are some amazing things happening in Pendleton that many are unaware of. For mroe information on the event, see http://www.futurefarm.tech/dronetraining.
The students at PHS are amazing! This year, Leadership Students at PHS delivered 460 coats to the Salvation Army for needy kids, groups and clubs throughout PHS via Leadership have adopted over 40 area youth to give them a great Christmas (separate from above gifts), and the food drive coordinated by the Leadership students brought in over 5000 canned foods to be donated to local charities! The class competition winner this year for the food drive at PHS was Mrs. Meighan's class. The students, parents, and community of Pendleton really know what it means to give back!
The Junior class was able to attend a career day set up by Mrs. Cooley this year. Students were able to listen to a number of individuals from multiple career paths! The second half of the day was filled with field trips to locations such as the Courthouse, police station, Newly Weds Foods, Wildhorse Resort and Casino, Interpath Laboratories, East Oregonian, Creative Signs, and the Pendleton Fire Department.
The play that was intended to run on December 7th, 8th, and 10th only ran for one day. There are plans in the works to be able to again offer the play in January. Please refer to the website for more information as it comes available. The PHS website address is http://hs.pendleton.k12.or.us/home
