Recognition and Community Night
In the largest after-school gathering of students and parents in recent Peninsula history, our community came together last night to celebrate! The Recognition and Community Night event saw an enthusiastic crowd of around 80 cheer on our students as they were recognized for achieving full fluency in English, maintaining the highest GPAs, perfect attendance, or excellence in an academic subject. Generously catered by our local Taqueria Mi Durango, PAHS staff, and offerings from our community (thank you, Ms. Kim!), we learned about making healthy choices around food, within interpersonal relationships, and when accepting support from others. Then, after an introduction from Principal Campana, the awards ceremony began!
PAHS Gym Mural Has Arrived!!!
Our new mural for our gym has arrived and will be placed in its proper place in the upcoming weeks. Artist Steve Untag was present and the first student to see the unveiling of his artwork. Our Puma students leaving a lasting legacy.

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.
