WALK FOR LIFE AND HOPE!

On Friday, February 24, the Panther community will come together for our annual Walk For Life event to raise money to help support cancer patients.

Pen Students must have their parents and 5th and 6th period teachers sign the form because they will miss class for the Walk.

COURSE PREVIEWS!

To assist students in selecting a combination of 2017-18 courses that will challenge, yet not overwhelm, our counselors and teachers have developed a schedule of lunchtime presentations to provide information on course and teacher expectations as well as an indication of the time commitment. Information about Pen's newest course - AP Seminar - will be presented on Feb. 22.

#SCREENAGERS!

We miss out on the important moments of our lives as we pass the hours with our noses buried in our phones, chronicling our every move through social media and shielding ourselves from the outside world with the bubble of silence that our earphones create. Research shows that the typical teenager logs more than 7 hours a day and more than 50 hours a week glued to a television, computer, or cell phone. Screen time can be fun, but the problem is that too much of it can negatively affect your sleep and take a toll on your physical and mental health.

Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston wondered about the impact of all this screen time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time. The result is her award winning film Screenagers. This film includes insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists and reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
Peninsula High will be offering a free screening of Screenagers for the community on Thursday evening, February 23 at 6:30pm in our gym. Pen students will be watching the film that day during scheduled assemblies.
