Raice Dalgliesh is really getting into the Holiday Spirit! He wore a Santa hat to school on the day before Thanksgiving! Merry Christmas, Raice. Santa's going to love your smile! Raice is a first grade student in Cindy Schumacher's class. Photo provided by PES.

Shown is a collage of the PHS Jr. English class' headline poetry projects with a 9/11 theme. See the article at left for some closeups.

The Junior Class of PHS is selling raffle tickets to raise some money for Junior/Senior Banquet, and they are hoping to have some extra cash saved up for prom next year. So far they have all worked together as a great team selling nearly $1900 dollars worth of tickets. Mrs. Remacle and the first hour English III class believed that after selling the first 1000 tickets within two days they could handle another 1000 before the Lapwai vs. Prairie game on December 2nd. So if you are at all interested in buying tickets you can contact either Mrs. Sarah Remacle, Mrs. Colleen Sonnen or someone in the junior class. Tickets are also available until Thursday at the Credit Union, Hoene Hardware, and Wells Fargo. The Junior class would also like to extend a BIG thank you to everyone who has helped with this raffle, especially Mrs. Sonnen for helping purchase the items for the baskets, Mrs. Remacle for making sure we all sold the two books of tickets needed, and lastly to all the supporters for making the tickets practically sell themselves. Shown from left are Carolyn Sonnen, Kayla Uhlenkott and Ben Schumacher.

The PHS dance team performed during halftime of the girls game against Nezperce. Shown is their finale. Shown clockwise from lower left are Ashley Nuxoll, Kayla Uhlenkott, Vanessa Hylton, Laura Gehring, Jami Riener and Heather Schumacher. 
These moms look like they are having as much fun in first grade as their children are! Lisa Dalgliesh (Raice's mom), Karrie Vanator (Terran's mom), Stacy Anderson (Brandon's mom) and Joyce Gehring (Laina's mom) helped Cindy Schumacher's class make their annual cinnamon dough ornaments. These gingerbread shaped creations will look great on the classroom Christmas tree! 
Mitchel and Adrianne Nuxoll's mom, Marci Nuxoll, recently spent the day volunteering in her children's classrooms. Adrianne is a fourth grade student in Kim Schumacher's class and Mitchel is a first grader in Cindy Schumacher's class. Mrs. Nuxoll is shown with her son Mitchel.
