PWHS Mannequin Challenge

By. MaKayla Cooper


Students from Mrs.Wilkinson’s and Mrs. Copley's Digital Technology class recently set up to film the Mannequin Challenge during a basketball pep rally. All of the high school students participated. This video turned out nicely, and everyone cooperated very well with the digital technology students while filming. The video was a success. Unfortunately, there were technical difficulties with uploading the video as it contained errors. We will need to have a second take, so, get your Mannequin Pose ready. Date and time to be determined. The Digital Technology class would like to thank all of the students who participated.

On December 2, the annual Mistletoe Ball was held and students were invited to attend the ball. Students dressed semi-formal with music and dancing. The students had to pay $5 admission and proceeds helped fund the Choral Department. Levi Gleim, sophomore, attended the Ball and expressed his experience as enjoyable stating "I had lots of fun and really enjoyed dancing and hanging out with friends."
