Congratulations to PHS Graduating Seniors!
Danielle Fouty

PHS alumni who are now graduating high school seniors dropped by to reconnect with their former teachers and classmates before heading off for college in the Fall. We were so happy to hear about their college acceptances and we are cheering them on for their continued success!

PHS Educator of the Year!
Danielle Fouty

This year’s PHS Educator of the Year, Dr. Mary Wilson was honored along with other educators in Palos Verdes at the annual Educator of the Year dinner and program on April 13, 2022, sponsored by the PVP Rotary Club and co-chaired by PHS’s Joan E. Behrens. Dr. Wilson spoke at the event and recounted her journey in the teaching profession and interesting incidents in her science lab preparations and experiments! Congratulations, Dr. Wilson!

“I was overwhelmed,” reflects Dr. Wilson. “It was wonderful! And thanks to my colleagues who joined me to celebrate this honor.”
