Gig Harbor High School COFIA Club and student volunteers made over 80 'tie-blankets' to be donated to the children at St. Jude Primary School in Rubongi, Uganda. Children in Rubongi live in dire poverty. Even the most basic items, such as a blanket to keep warm, are often not available. Way to go, GHHS!

Do you know an outstanding PSD senior? Nominations for Students of Distinction are now being accepted through February 13. 36 Students will be recognized at a Community Banquet on May 20 in the following categories: Academics, Athletics, Business and Entrepreneurs, Community Service, Music, Arts, and Drama, Overcoming Adversity, and Science and Technology.
The Students of Distinction program was started by the Peninsula Gateway in 2003 as a way to recognize outstanding achievement from graduating seniors in the Peninsula School District. Currently chaired by Brian McLean, Communication Coordinator of Peninsula Light, and supported by the Greater Gig Harbor Foundation, the Students of Distinction program has grown to honor 36 seniors annually with post secondary scholarships.
With true community spirit, schools unite to raise money for scholarships!
Congratulations to PHS students Sophie Alvestad, Kaitlin Flanigan and Josie Self for organizing a fun event that raised $3600 for scholarships at both schools. Kudos to the leadership, staff, and students at both schools for their spirited participation.
