PAES Giving l We Made Stone Soup!

As we round out the month of gratitude we thank you for sending food for our canned food drive. We are donating the items to the Oregon Food Bank.

During Family Pack time last Friday, our Middle School students used reader's theater to share the story of Stone Soup.  Students read aloud and we reflected on so many reasons that we at PAES are grateful and blessed.

Younger students from each pack participated, too. At the end of pack time, students placed cans and food items in the center of the library to exemplify how coming together can have an even bigger impact than one of us alone. Individually our families sent but a few items but together our generosity overflows!


Attitudes of Gratitude

The students of PAES wanted to express their gratitude to the men and women who keep us safe and keep things running in our town.

Working together in their Family Packs, students wrote poems, letters and created paper crafts to say thank you. This week, a team of 7th and 8th graders ventured out with Principal O'Neal and Ms. Swarner to deliver the artwork and brighten up workplaces.

You can see their work displayed at the Gresham Post Office, Gresham Police Department, Legacy Mt Hood Hospital and Fire Station 174.
