All Sports Kick-Off A HUGE Success!

Thank you to Mark and Rosa Easton for opening their beautiful home to the Peninsula High athletic community. Co-Chairs Cheryl Philips and Dee Scott did a fantastic job organizing the event. Thank you to the ABC board for hosting the taco bar – delicious! It was great to visit with so many Panther Parents, coaches, and Peninsula administration. The highlight of the evening was the performances by our Cheer Squad and Marching Band. 2016-all-sports-party-group-shot From Left:  All Sports Kick-Off party co-chairs Cheryl Philips and Dee Scott; Steve Watts, ABC co-chair;  Mitzi Cress, Principal;  Ceci Watts, ABC co-chair; Rosa and Mark Easton, Kick-Off party hosts.  Photo credit: Tom Coombs

Great News from PVPUSD: Reduced Participation Donations

Peninsula families should have received an announcement via email from PVPHS Principal Mitzi Cress (Aug 13, 2015) regarding updates to the participation donation program that supplements necessary funding for our athletic teams.  Thanks to an additional $100,000 in funds committed by the school district, the PVPHS suggested participation donations for each sport are here for the 2015-2016 school year. Thank you to all our families who have contributed these donations, and to those who support the Athletic Booster Club activities which provide funding for teams that is not covered by the school district or participation donations!
