Congratulations to our Student Award Winners!


Huge thanks to all of the approximately 75 family members, staff, community partners, and students who gathered last night to celebrate another amazing trimester at PAHS!  Our dinner that evening was donated and prepared by our school staff, including chicken, beans and rice, salad, and many drink and dessert options.  We had presentations from both StarVista’s Insights program and the FLY program – two agencies with whom we partner for supportive services for our students – and then handed out awards!  22 awards were given for outstanding accomplishments in each academic discipline, 10 for attendance, and 30 students earned places on our honor and merit rolls this trimester – including 8 with High Honors with all A’s!  As our ceremony closed, many parents verbalized their pride in their students’ accomplishments as well as their gratitude for the teachers and staff.
