Congratulations to Ms. Michiel's Spanish Class students! Back row: Grant Wingett, Daniel LaTourelle, Robert Santos, Clayton Matulich, Bradley Snetsinger, front row: Nicole Aquino, Jesus Lopez, and Sheena Blackwell (not pictured).
This year Ms. Michiels had 8 students that have been with her all 4 years of Spanish. The students are wearing a mini paella pan "medal" that has their name and 4 years with Sra. Michiels in Spanish.
• This year, on the 10th anniversary of "The March to the Test," Piner High School's AP Language students--breaking records
again with 70 students total--converged upon the quad wearing their self-designed baseball tees emblazoned with "WRITING THROUGH THE SIX WITH MY WOES!"
While some adults might wonder why Ms. Spearman would encourage sadness (woe) on the t-shirt, the connotation of "woe" in this rhetorical flourish is "friend"!
The class of 2016 marched off to the testing room, clutching two Ticonderoga pencils, two blue or black ink pens, and an ineffable amount of excitement.
Ms. Spearman is very proud of her amazing, hard-working students.
• Congratulations to Sheena Blackwell and Tony Martignoli for being selected as the 2014/2015 Piner High School Athletes of
the Year and to Daisjah Sheperd and Jacob Hayes for their selection of 2014/2015 Piner High School Scholar Athletes of the Year! Each of these individuals
exemplify the meaning of balancing athletics and academics and serve as role models for all of our student athletes here at PHS.
• Piner's Health Science Biotech Pathway was recognized by SSU to receive Jack London Award of Excellence and Innovation
for our 3 year program that inspires and challenges Piner students to participate in STEM education as it relates to Medical Science and Biotechnology.
Read more about the HSB Program here. The HSB pathway has also been recognized as a Career Technical
Educational pathway with its strong ties to the community for student job shadow experiences and preparing the students for a variety of college majors
to pursue professional degrees. Sonoma State School of Education presented the award to HSB instructors Mark Mantoani, Judy Barcelon and Principal Sally Bimrose
(Dante DePaola, treasured Year II teacher, was obligated to SRJC Football). From Judy Barcelon, "What I love most about being a teacher in the HSB program
is that it feeds my need to be an explorer and life long learner. Each year with different students come different ideas, career requests and passions-
infused with such topics as Healthcare and Biotechnology that have exponential potential and there is never a dull moment.
• Piner Principal, Sally Bimrose (center), selected SCASA (Sonoma County Association of School Administrators) High School Principal
Administrator of the Year. In the photo "Team Piner", there is also Diann Kitamura who was chosen Assistant Superintendent Administrator of the Year.
