PAES is excited to announce our new Pre-Kinder/Transitional Kinder (PK/TK) class. This new class will be a full day program for students who do not meet the age requirements for kindergarten or who may not be ready for kindergarten.  This will be the first year of a 2-year kindergarten experience.  Our TK class is designed to meet the developmental needs of our students and build the foundational skills that will ensure success as the students enter kindergarten, first grade, and beyond!

 

Published Author Visits PAES

Mrs C, our PAES Librarian, works closely with Barnes & Noble for our book fairs and school and classroom libraries. Recently, a representative from Barnes and Noble called Mrs. C to see if we would be interested in having a children's author come and speak to our kids and read one of her new books to them. 

Of course Mrs. C. was very excited and coordinated the visit of Annie Barrows to PAES!! Annie Barrows is a New York Times best-selling author best known for her Ivy + Bean series of children’s books. Barrows introduced and read from her new book, The Best of Iggy, to 2nd-5th graders last Thursday in our school library.  It was such a neat experience for our students to meet a real author and to hear her read her own work and explain how she came up with ideas for it.   She also left signed copies of her new book for sale here in the office. 

Thank you to Mrs. C.  and the Clackamas Barnes & Noble for such a special treat!!
