Dear PH School Community, 
 
Tomorrow is Veteran's Day!  󾓦
 
Please join me in thanking Mrs. Cathy Hicks, sponsor of the Rowdy Rebel Club and coordinator of our Veteran's Day Celebration, for organizing a special virtual tribute to our Veterans as we celebrate their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for all of us and our country.  
 
Special thanks to LTC Jim Hoffman, Mrs. Patty Mitchell, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew & Jillian Smith, Madison Tuggle, PH music students, and all others who helped with this important event!
