March is here and it came in like a lion, as our front page picture captures perfectly. Just because the weather is less than ideal, it doesn't mean that there aren't great stories happening at PHS. This month we feature stories on CTE month, concurrent enrollment classes, upcoming spring sports, and of course a story on our state champion PHS wrestling team. Like always, all stories are completely student produced and edited.
