Field Ribbon CuttingThis past week, we’ve had two wonderful Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies at PHS that mark the opening of new facilities for all of our students.
On Sunday, October 9th, we gathered with members of the PHS Board of Trustee; Rev. Sunny Kang of St. Luke’s Presbyterian Church; Eileen Hupp, CEO and President of the Palos Verdes Chamber of Commerce; and PHS parents, students, and faculty to cut the ribbon and formally open ourAll Invited Guests and PHS Board & Administrators beautiful new Middle School. We were delighted to be joined by Rolling Hills Estates Mayor Steve Zuckerman and California State Assemblyman, David Hadley. Guests toured the beautiful classrooms, science lab, and office while enjoying cookies and refreshingly cold waters.
The very next day, Monday, the entire student body eagerly assembled for the Ribbon Cutting at the grass area of our athletic field. (The new all-weather track had been completed in the prior month.) The novelty for the students of running, hopping, bouncing, and even rolling in the new grass continued all day!
Thank you all for your generous donations at last spring’s Gala as well as your gifts to our Annual Giving Fund that made these beautiful facilities possible for all PHS students! Merci!

June Graduate’s Family Writes

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

We would like to share the following note from the family of one of our 8th Grade graduates addressed to “Everyone at PHS”:
“Once in a lifetime, you may be lucky enough to be in a place Middle School Sign w Ribbon Cutting Bannerwhere you feel pure contentment, where you are surrounded by loving, supporting friends, and where you know you will fit in and be cared for every day.
How fortunate were we to find that place in Peninsula Heritage School! Even more fortunate for us was to have the privilege of being here for 8 years! We cannot begin to express our gratitude for all you have given us.
PHS will be a part of us forever. We love you!”

Thank you for such a wonderful evening! Last night’s weather was beautiful, and you, our invited guests, K Door Resizedwere cheerful and ever so gracious! Thanks to Mrs. Joye once again for providing so many delectable treats! I have a feeling that we could have been here at school until midnight because we provide so many educational tools to reach and teach your children.
Gratitude goes to our staff for their hard work and diligence in providing this wonderful evening for our PHS community. We are off with a grand start to a stellar year!
