Greetings families & friends!
Our summer at PAES has been busy as we plan and prepare for the upcoming year. I have had the opportunity to meet with many families – some returning and some new. It’s exciting to share the great things happening here at PAES!
A quick reminder that we have summer library hours every Wednesday from 11am – 1pm. It has been awesome to see families coming in to read and work with Mrs. C each week. Her dedication to PAES is amazing... we are lucky and blessed to have her a part of our school family.
We have some fun summer events planned and they are just around the corner... I hope you can join us:
Family Skate Night is August 14th at Skate World in Gresham from 6pm-8pm. We've rented the rink out for PAES friends and family, it's going to be great!
The PAES Ice Cream Social is August 31st at PAES from 6:30pm-7:30 pm. Join us on campus and enjoy some delicious ice cream, check out your classroom, visit w/ teachers. This is a great time for Middle School students to decorate their lockers.
This summer has been busy for our teachers! In June, half of our staff attended the EXCEED conference in Loma Linda, California. The conference focused on STEM instruction and project-based learning. We had the opportunity to learn exciting and innovative strategies that will continue to enrich our school. Teachers who were not able to attend the EXCEED conference have participated in other educational conferences throughout the summer and we are looking forward to hearing about their experiences.
Please reach out to me, or any member of our staff, if you have questions or need something. Enjoy the rest of the summer with your family – we look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming events!
See you soon,
– Principal O’Neal
