Attention Freshman Winter Athletes--all freshman who would like to consider a PE waiver must make the roster and fill out the proper paperwork with their counselor within 5 days of the IHSA start date for your sport. No waivers will be granted after 5 days.



Calling All Knights:  The PHS Canned Food Drive starts tomorrow and runs through Tuesday, December 4!  Last year our second period classes collected just over 7,000 cans for the Mount Prospect Food Pantry, and our donation carried them through the spring.  This year our goal is 10,000 cans, so we can help provide assistance for area families all the way through the summer months when donations are at their lowest.  As always, the second period class with the highest total number of canned and boxed food items will win breakfast and the coveted "PHS Food Drive Championship Belt," and the second period class with the highest item-to-student ratio will also receive a free breakfast.  In addition, there will be prizes for the best decorated box, and the winning division will take home the Golden Can! Looking ahead, please donate to the PHS Canned Food Drive and help make the new year a little brighter for hundreds of local families in need.
