On Saturday, November 4, our very own Javier Guyton and dance partner Destini Edwards were featured at the CASA event, “Dancing with the Local Stars!” They spent 2 months with Mrs. Redington on Sunday mornings fine-tuning their skills and learning a dance that would wow the audience! Their dance to Hallelujah/Good to Be Alive, which incorporated a variety of dance styles from ballroom to hip hop, brought the entire crowd of almost 800 people to their feet! PHS raised over $7,000 to benefit the CASA program which advocates for abused and neglected children in the Peoria area. The community of Peoria was treated to a fine example of the remarkable things that take place at the Pride of the City every day! Congratulations PSA dancers for another job well done!!!

During the 2016-2017 school year, the Peoria High School Book Club read Tayari Jones' Silver Sparrow as part of the Peoria Public Library Big Read program, so it was a special treat when the author visited the school and met with the students. A photo from that visit is featured on the National Endowment for the Arts website. Take a look: https://www.arts.gov/partnerships/nea-big-read
