The attachment of a Mr or Ms to the front of each of our names is something unprecedented to us as students, but the aspect of “freshman” teachers helps us understand this idea. Mr. McDaniel, a first year...

         It is certain that many people will come into a person’s life, and it is just as certain that only few will stay. Mrs. Fritts, an English teacher in room 505, is the staying kind.

Mr. Kiehne Leaves PBHS

Megan Thomas

     I am sad to report that Mr. Kiehne, our principal of six years, will be leaving PBHS. In his time here we have added the advisory hour, given each student access to the MacBooks for better learning, and began Capturing Kids Hearts. The greatest part of Kiehne’s time at PBHS has been the steady improvement of student graduation rate and EOC testing scores. His experience here put down to one word was “ch...

       Colin Angle, one of the founders of the company iRobot once said: “People are fascinated by robots because they’re machines that can mimic life.” The robotics team seems to be just that. In a room with countertops that are overflowing with scattered tools and pieces, they are truly embodying the idea that Colin Angle proposed. As a team, they work together each year to create their own fully functioning, e...
