The butterflies fluttering, eyes frantically searching through a seemingly endless crowd, new people that somehow know your name and a bunch of older kids looking down on you.   This may seem like a crazy concert or a crowded event, and in a way the first full day of freshmen year is exactly like a chaotic roller c...

We all know the routine. You open, you scroll, yet you don’t quite know what’s really going on in your world but, you’re not alone. In a world of 7.6 billion people you are probably one of the 3 billion social media users.    Sydney Harris, a student, a gymnast, and maybe like you, an active social media user from PLHS seems to have a slightly different sch...

As the summer season fades out, it begins to get cold and so do students. Often-times teens find themselves catching colds throughout the fall and winter seasons easier than they do during the summer and spring seasons.  It is very common that students may catch a GI virus or respiratory issue.   “Right now there’s a GI virus going around. When you get this many people together and p...

They have their eyes on you. You can sense them poised somewhere in a dark corner, ready to attack at any moment. You want to acknowledge it, to run and scream, but you’re in complete isolation. There seems to be no exits, there is no one to tell. You're on your own, under attack, terrified that at...

It’s that time of year again!  Hectic planning and rushing around to find the perfect date.  Yep that’s right, PLHS, it’s time for your annual homecoming.  Get ready to go broke and have a blast dancing the night away.  On October 6th, PLHS homecoming was one of the biggest events of the school year for the students and with such a big event, required a lot of planning.  ...

The simple “good luck!” or “you got this!” can make such a difference in performance, whether it’s academics or sports. Here at PLHS, encouragement is extremely common. PLHS believes that encouraging students will help them excel at what activities they partake in. However, there...

The games, the cheers, the music, the dances at a classic high school pep rally all start from somewhere. The school doesn’t just “wing it”. There must be practice and schedule in order to make those 30 minutes as entertaining as possible.  PLHS is having their first pep rally of the year on Friday October 5th, the night of the homecoming game. Many teams and groups of peopl...

Heavy breathing, waiting anxiously for the ball to fly up in the air, a pause, a whistle blows, RUN!  The ball is in the air, heads high. A stick then catches the ball, you look down hoping that it’s a jersey of your fellow teammate.   Tinley Strittmatter, a former freshman at PLHS r...

The air bites at what little exposed skin she has. The bright, vibrant colors of the summer long gone, instead made into dull browns and greys. Chills run down her spine as she walks down the sidewalk, the air cold and unforgiving on her exposed hand. She didn’t care, though, she was much too preoccupied....

The clock is at 10 seconds, slowly creeping down, getting toward the end. Ellie jumps for the ball, someone grabs it before her, so she snatches it out of their hands. She acknowledges the open court space, and her teammate Caitlyn past 3 defenders. She hurls the ball over all 3 of them to Caitlyn....

Arrive at airport, check. Pass through security, check. Board plane, check. Pass through customs, check. Now repeat, but you can only speak in Spanish, uncheck. Most people would say that they could never do these things in a new language, but what most people don’t realize is that after a few months...

Fall weather is often something that many people look forward to. The crisp, cool air is a refreshing change from the stifling summer heat. However, this year’s fall weather has been full of cloudy days and rain, and Sept. 29 was no exception. On that day it was raining, and it was pouring - b...
