Performing Arts Center,




Dear Patrick Henry High Community, 


I am very happy to announce that a new theater/performing arts center will be built on our campus for the benefit of all our students and our community and will break ground in late Fall of 2013!  The theater plan and funding was approved by the San Diego Unified School District Board of Education on December 13, 2011.  The completion date is set for the spring of 2015 and should add a special touch to our campus by bringing us up to the 21stcentury in style. 


Vice President School Board Member, Kevin Beiser, and Former School Board Member, Katherine Nakamura, have been instrumental in supporting the building of a performing arts center at PHHS and are currently seeking supporters to help furnish the building with state-of-the-art technology and equipment. Please go to http://cowlesmountain.org/ to find out more information on how you can be involved to help support this amazing facility that will be up and running soon. 

I also want to include a special thank you to Pat Crowder who fought for this building from the start.  She shared the vision and levied funding from every elementary and middle school to ensure we got it done regardless of Prop Z.  Jim Good is carrying the torch as he knows the vision and has the mission to make it marvelous (which he does so well).  This award is shared by so many.  I’m lucky to have come along after the hard work was done and now, WE all get to have the fun of watching it grow into something quite impressive.   

We’re looking forward to the future at PHHS which will include the use of this facility for all our visual and performing arts classes. For more information contact me at lgillingham@sandi.net 



Listy Gillingham,
Patrick Henry High
