Monday, May 31st

Good evening Mariner Families,

This is Ms. Doty with some important announcements: 

  1. It is with mixed emotions that I share that Mr. Ronnie Gilmore will be retiring this year from his position as our lead custodian and bus driver. He's been here at PHS since 1999.His shoes will be impossible to fill but we couldn't be happier to help him celebrate this next adventure in his life. He will be joining his son in the trucking business, traveling the highways together. Please join me in wishing him the very best in this next phase of life. 
  2. Field Days start this week. Detailed information is shared in the email version of this message:
