The green team is at it again! These students are excited and thrilled to be serving the school and helping out the environment. Cameron Williams, freshman, says “The recycling team is a fun way to meet new people and help the school.” The team goes around the school every Tuesday and collects what is in the recycling bins. Keeping the bins emptied as much as possible will help promote recycling and prevent recyclable items from being thrown away. Thanks to our green team, our school is beginning to grow a green thumb! If you want to join in on the fun, speak to any member of the team, or find them during seminar.

G.S.A. Club Spotlight
The Gay-Straight Alliance club has been hard at work to decide who the new leaders will be to help determine the future plans of the club; they are planning for the new themes for the upcoming months, they are also going to be putting up posters around the school to promote the club.
No Spanish club is not just sit is a class and learn. You actually get to do things! There are different cool songs and traditional music that you get to learn along with doing different service projects that help with problems that some people are having down in South America. It is a great way to learn more about the Hispanic community and communicate in different languages!
We want to help out our environment and make sure that it is being taken care of. Well, the recycling club is for you! Here at recycling cub, every seminar day they go to different classrooms and empty their recycling bins that all of their extra paper and recyclable items go into. Recycling club has been active since 2007 and they would like to keep it going. This club has not started yet but keep your ears peeled as dates are coming for signups.
Are you bored of doing things you don’t want to in art class or want to try out making your own? Well, then you should come join Mrs. Haroff’s Art Club and create your own chalk drawings, pencil drawings, and paintings. They’ll be doing lots of things and maybe you could learn how to draw a simple eye or an entire body, but you might still do some things the teacher suggests. Mrs. Haroff would love for you to join and learn even more or test your limits and expand them.
Getting bored at home? Come sign up for Mr. Krohn’s Robotic Club. Between 10 to 30 people enter this club each year to work on their robotics and engineering skills. “Michigan is the most competitive place for robotics.” - Mr. Krohn. They enter competitions every year with around 1000 other teams fighting for the number one spot. These robots take around 6 weeks to build and get ready for the event. “About 1000 entries every year, we never win but we do really good.” - Mr. Krohn. They are always looking for more people to join and help them get to their robots to the top!
As we enter a new school year, we would like to introduce you to the G.S.A. G.S.A (Gay, Straight Alliance) is a great way for students to interact with each other. The G.S.A. usually has around 15-20 members and they help make the LGBTQ community feel safe and welcomed in our school. “I feel like we’ve been fortunate at PHS to have created a culture and climate where everyone is welcome to be who they are.” - Mrs. Fliesher. The G.S.A. will be going all year and will definitely be most active during PRIDE week. They will be offering everyone in the school to sign a pledge saying that they won’t bully or harass someone because of their sexuality. The G.S.A. will be pleased if you join even if you’re straight, they welcome all allies to the LGBTQ community.
Getting good grades isn’t always just for your parents. Good grades can also get you into cool clubs like N.H.S (National Honors Society). N.H.S is a club for the kids that take academics seriously with getting all A’s and B’s in all of their classes. It does not take much to be in this club, just pay attention in class and get good grades. Also no tardies or absences profusely throughout the year. N.H.S looks very good on college applications and can get you a better job offer as well.
