Read about Piner's 2017 Inquiry Fair. Over 60 students showed off their projects at the 2017 Inquiry Fair, Friday March 10th in the Piner High Library. Projects ranged from exploring how microwaves work to creating the best protocol for creating geodes and crystals. Students are encouraged to use the Inquiry fair as their start to hone their research skills in preparation for our STEM certificate capstone Level 3 projects- and this year there were many projects that have this potential.

Library Dedication
Piner High School and the friends of former PHS English Teacher Dick Latimer are delighted to invite current and former students, administrators, colleagues, friends of Dick Latimer, and the public to the dedication of the Piner High School Library in his honor on Wed. April 19th at 4PM. Dick Latimer, who died in 2014, was a cherished teacher, mentor, colleague and friend throughout his many years at Piner High School. He moved to Piner when it opened to serve as its first English Department Chairman, hiring and mentoring many of Piner's early teaching staff. His teaching mastery, wit, calm demeanor, and mentorship continue to be deeply valued and admired by Piner students and colleagues. Please join the entire Piner Family in honoring Dick Latimer on April 19 at 4PM at the Piner High School Library and to remember and celebrate one of Piner's Greatest Prospectors!

Please join us Tuesday March 14th. After a brief PTSA meeting, we will be having a speaker from Sonoma County Department of Health Services. See the attached flyer (Espanol) for details.
