Vermont History Day
Congratulations to Kim Rupe, Emily Burke, and Ginger Vaughn for their stellar work this past Saturday at Vermont History Day. Emily and Ginger impressed the judges with their exhibit on Anesthesia: Mind Altering Medicine. While Kim's documentary "100 years of Innovation: Boys Scouts of America" earned her a good ranking and second place in the competition! PHS is very proud of all three of these young ladies!
The PHS Junior/Senior Prom will be May 15. More details to follow.
Rachel Jones Gets a Haircut
Rachel Jones is a 7th grader at PHS. On Saturday, March 20, the Poultney Fire Department and Rescue Squad hosted a cancer fundraiser for St. Baldrick's Foundation. Local hair stylists came to the American Legion to cut hair for free, with all donations going to the foundation. Many folks from our school community had their hair cut, but Rachel went one step further and asked to have her head shaved for the cause. When Rachel was interviewed by the principal, she had this to say: "This was a very good fund raiser. I was the youngest to have my head shaved. There was one other woman who had her hair shaved off, but she was older than me. I did this because it gave me a good feeling to do this to help someone who may have cancer. I am lucky to be healthy and I think about those who have cancer and this was one way I could help these people!"

Class of 2010 News from Greg Mulholland, Class Advisor
The PHS Class of 2012 held a spaghetti dinner on Saturday, March 20 at Poultney Elementary School, it was an amazing success! We served 88 spaghetti dinners with salad and homemade rolls (rolls thanks to Paula Mead and family). Many "thank yous" to the dessert bakers (the class members and their families). Everything was delicious! Molly Mead made two baby quilts and sold raffle tickets earning $260 for the Class of 2012. The quilts were beautiful! The winners were Taylor Hoyt and Matthew Dundon. Thank you Molly for the time and effort you put into these quilts (also to her mother Paula and some guidance from Mrs. Harmon). Taylor Parker, of Granville, won the 50/50 raffle, for $59. The winner then donated back $19 from his winnings. Thank you, Taylor! We could not have done the dinner without the great work of the following students and their parents:
Lita Norris, Molly Mead, Justin Mackey, Anthony Mazur, Josh Stiles, Zac Chesnut, Chris Loomis, Abby Teetor, Laura Lyle, Kim Rupe, Chris Shepardson, Emily Burke, Dan Cook, Alan-Glen Burnell, Jared White, Nicole Bogucki, and Deanna Coppins
Also a thank you to Kim Babcock and Paula Mead, for all their cooking and kitchen work! We received compliments on how friendly and polite the students were! I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Tammy Loomis for all her help with organization and pulling off this huge success.
