Dear Parents,

The long awaited Scholastic Book Fair is coming to PAES Monday-Friday, April 16-20 for your shopping convenience. It is time to stock up on books for SUMMER READING. You will be able to park in the school parking lot by using the street side lane both morning and afternoon. Bring your slip with you and we will call your child to meet you at the door. The far left door will be unlocked; you are welcome to come any time during the day to shop for or with your child/children. The children are welcome to come and shop anytime during the day, as long as they have permission from their teachers. I will be taking them to the Book Fair during Library times that week. There are, also, two other upcoming events I want to bring to your attention: K/1st Visitation Day and STEAM Night.

Fun Times

We're back from Spring Break!!! We hope that you all had a fun and relaxing time off from school.

In catching up, we want to share some pics from some school activities that happened just before we left for break... that last part of March was full of fun activities!!!

Family Skate Night

What a GREAT turn out! Family fun nights like this are always a blast and we were thrilled so many families came out. Skate World is fun for kids of all ages :) 


WWVA Acro Knights

Walla Walla Valley Academy (WWVA) visited PAES on their way to their Spring Break mission trip. We were treated to a fantastic gymnastics performance, what an incredibly talented group!!! 

The Acro Knights talked about strength, teamwork and what it means to take good risks. They taught us that gymnastics is a lot like our relationship with God... we need a solid foundation as the base of our lives (e.g. their pyramid routine). We need to have faith and trust that God will catch us when we fall. 


During Spring Break PAES students and families attended the Ten Grands for Kids piano concert downtown Portland. The concert was a lot of fun... playing Disney favorites, cartoon theme songs as well as classical pieces. 

Seeing and hearing the ten pianos all playing together was a sight to behold!!! Something really amazing was that most of the players were from local high schools... VERY inspiring for our young PAES pianists!
