2017 | A Black & Gold Affaire Thanks You



In a night to remember, our senior athletes were recognized for the years of hard work and dedication. In total, the Black and Gold event raised north of 100 thousand dollars; all that will go back to our athletes athletic endeavors. In a night that featured and honored our seniors, we would also like to take a second to honor the lady that has ran this and all other events at Peninsula for the past seven years. Thank you Mitzi Cress for being more than a Principal, thank you for being a a friend, supporter and, as Mr. Kelly Johnson adequately described, “the brightest administrator PVPUSD will ever have.



Thank you in advance for your support!

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!
