During her junior year at PHS, student Sadie Boven, completed a captivating wall mural at Plainwell Middle School. The mural is prominently showcased in the hall of the science wing at PMS. Sadie's artwork encompasses sections dedicated to science, math, social studies and English. She attributes her inspiration to Mrs. Beltowski, “who encourages my creativity and inspires me to be bold and colorful”. Sadie's remarkable artistic skills have left a lasting impression, and we are grateful that she has shared her talents for everyone to appreciate at the Middle School for many years to come - Trojan Pride!

We 💙 our community! Recently, a PCS family experienced a need for new appliances. In working with Charlotte Korreck (PCS District Outreach Coordinator), a request was submitted through the Care Portal where local churches and The Appliance Patch stepped in to lend a helping hand. Led by The Appliance Patch Manger, Andrea and their owners Aaron and Jill, they presented the family with a new washer and dryer! We are incredibly grateful for the amazing support from our community. THANK YOU to the local churches and Appliance Patch for lending a hand to this Trojan family - Plainwell Pride!

The PHS Varsity Softball team concluded their season on a high note last Saturday, showcasing their best performance yet. Despite not securing a win against Vicksburg in the district game, they played exceptionally well. In an earlier Vicksburg vs. Plainwell game this season, it resulted in a mercy rule after three innings. However, in Districts, the team demonstrated outstanding defense by limiting Vicksburg to only one run for multiple innings. The team excelled with Samantha McDaniel's excellent pitching, Liv Perrin's solid performance as catcher, Sophia Barth's exceptional plays at first base, as well as impressive plays from Emma Preuss, Gabby Northern and Sophie Munch. Shortstop Madison Seibert made seven crucial outs during the game. The Plainwell Softball program is dedicated to continuous learning and growth, showing improvement in each game throughout the season. GO TROJANS!
