Greetings from Patrick Henry High School
Good afternoon. We are gearing up for the 2015-16 school year. It has been too quiet for too long at PH! We have enjoyed having a few students in the building lately. Last Tuesday, we held our first annual Patriot Camp, attended by about 100 freshmen. We were thrilled with the student participation. Much thanks are due to our counselors for planning the games and activities. They did a great job. We ended with pizza and a selfie station complete with graduation gowns and caps!
Even in the summer months, our Patriots shine. Ted Schubert has once again shown that he is an award-winning swimmer:
At Junior Nationals (18 yeas old and under) in Indianapolis, Ted won the 200 butterfly, qualified for Olympic Trials in two more events (for a total of three) and won the Men’s High Point Award for the meet. At Senior Nationals in San Antonio, Ted placed in the top 25 of two events. And, more congratulations are due because Ted also has been accepted to Stanford.
What a summer! Thank you, Kevin Trent, for keeping us informed.
Furthermore, Mr. Trent reports that Annika Cline, Johnny Edelman, and Allyson Flinn won the Greater Richmond Aquatic League video contest for the second consecutive year. Plus, Annika won the local poster contest for Crime Stoppers. Congratulations to Annika, Johnny, and Allyson!
