  • Every 15 Minutes: Every Fifteen Minutes is a community-based program involving a partnership of health, safety, and emergency services from throughout Sonoma County. A simulated car crash is staged on the high school campus and through student-centered experiences that transpire over the course of two days, the entire student body participates in a lesson concerning the devastation and heartache that can be caused as a result of teen choices to drink and drive. In Spring 2013 this program was presented on the Piner High School campus in a moving and highly impactful way. The video is of the "car accident" that was staged for the students of Piner High School in order to engage them in a teachable moment focused on the negative impacts of drinking and driving. Link to video.
  • Science Foundation Invitation: Piner High School's Science Department welcomes you to Piner High School. We strive to challenge your student academically and present unique opportunities to engage them in thoughtful exploration of the scientific process. With our Science and Technology Center nearing completion, we find ourselves in a position to explore the formation of a Non-profit Foundation to assist in the management and funding of programs and processes that will occur within the facility (i.e. field trips, evening events, STEM Cafes, community outreach, etc). We invite you to an informational stakeholders meeting to share your vision and expertise as well as possibly serve as a Foundation member. Please contact Judy Barcelon.
