PAHS Community Night is growing!
Yesterday’s PAHS Community Night event was a great success! Huge thanks go out to our student, Amairani Lopez Sandoval who provided fantastic volunteer childcare, Jesse Warshauer and the culinary arts program students for preparing a delicious and healthy meal, Miranda Duncan from StarVista’s Insights program for the informative and engaging presentation on addressing issues of substance use, Carlos Nolasco for his tireless efforts at both outreach and translation, and, of course, all of the students, families and staff who joined together last night.
There were 26 students, family, and staff members who participated, not including our 3 Counseling Department staffers nor those in the childcare room. The students and families represented the full range of our school’s diversity in terms of academic abilities, behavioral management, socioeconomic status, culture, and geography. In addition, 20 feedback forms were returned with 8 volunteering to help with future community events.
