Last week PHHS celebrated Random Acts of Kindness Week. Teachers were able to nominate students they witness displaying kindness. Students received recognition for being kind to others. Examples of their kind acts included picking up trash around school, helping other students with their school work, being kind and welcoming to all students even if they are not in their friend group, lending school supplies, and leaving kind notes for teachers. Students nominated were Abby Ring, Alexiea Werner, Anthony Stewart, Blaise Jackson, Cydney Metzger, Emma Marshall, Jenna Avery, Joey Mazy Franks, Keyara Halstead, Libby Johnson, Madison Blevins, Marianne Riley, Mason Richardson, Mason Winfree (Smith), Nadia Huffman, Parker Elkins, Ramsey Kohler, Sarah Morris, Sofia Abney, and William Markham.
