Thanks School Supply Donors

Thank you to the parents who responded to our emergency call for school supply funds.  We appreciate your support!

School Supply and Summer Reading Lists Available Here

Each child was sent home on the last day of school with a list of supplies for next year and summer reading instructions and books. For your convenience, we have posted the lists here.

The Give With Target campaign is underway again. This doesn't cost any money. Anyone with a Facebook account can access the Give With Target app and vote weekly through September 21st.  Target will donate a $25 gift card to for every 25 votes to PAS.  These gifts provide great supply support for our teachers.  Please vote now and again each week, and spread the word. 


Garden Blog Entry

Lily Johnson and Cousin Enjoy PAS ArugulaLily Johnson and Cousin Enjoy PAS ArugulaMrs. Gilbert asked my family to fill in this week at the garden due to a schedule change.  We were at the beach with family, but got to the garden today (Friday, August 9th) in time to do a little bit of weeding, watering, and mostly harvesting.  Thankfully, it was a good week to leave the garden untended because it rained several times.  I have been shy to take on garden duty because I perceive myself as a terrible gardener and I believe I am being generous to myself with that assessment.  Lucky for me, I had a PAS student with me who has spent the past three years in Mrs. Gilbert's room learning and talking about gardening.  Lily knew just what to do and got very excited about having the opportunity to visit the PAS garden.
