May 4-8 – PHSS Rocks!

We’ve painted a bunch of rocks and hidden them around town (and the beach!). Your challenge is to find them, take a selfie with them, and email that selfie to phss@sd85.bc.ca. It is important that you leave the rocks where they are and do not handle them! The more selfies we receive, the more entries you will get to win a prize at the end of the week.

Winners: Griffin Handley & Ms. Kunstar and Brooke Mercer & Ms. Gildersleeve
