Fun Friday 9/23


In efforts to build community and celebrate students' individuality, Ms. Victorio, Mr. Nolasco and Mr. Bagsik focused on exploring identity through the creative arts with students.  Students reflect on the multiple identities that run throughout our community, here at PAHS. In alignment with the Olympic theme, the top 3 projects will be awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze at a later time our website. Staff felt it would a great way for students' to take ownership of themselves as well as serve as an opportunity for students to learn more about each other. 


Students, District Personnel, and Community Members Enjoy the PAHS Cafe


Above are photos of our Culinary program in action.  On Fridays, they run their cafe program.  These photos were taken from Friday September 16th.  The top picture is of student Jacinto Cano proud of his seasoned chicken.  The middle picture is of student Aiden Stewart tending to point-of-sale.  The menu on this day was Shredded Chicken Tacos with Refried Beans and Pico de Gallo and Hulk Blood Green Juice (apple, coconut water, grapes, celery, lime, spinach).  Culinary CTE teacher Mr. Warshauer said "Students are doing an amazing job and learning both how to make well-balanced meals while learning how to run a business."  Next week is scheduled for sandwiches with side salad, and lemonade made with lemons provided by staff lemon trees, sweetened with organic evaporated cane juice. Come by during lunch for a fresh meal and a refreshing drink.

FLY's mission is to prevent juvenile youth from making bad choices through legal education, leadership training, and one-on-one mentoring.  This program gives our students life skills to become positive community leaders.   This picture was taken on the day twenty-five students completed a twelve week course and received their certificates.
