First day of school!

I have the Dream Team! I believe it in my heart that PACHS is going to have a wonderful school year.  We have spent our Summer Institute learning how to integrate social emotional learning into our classrooms, remembering the value of our student-teacher relationships, refocusing on competency-based education, and having fun as a staff.  We even had a picnic at the park to remind us that we need to take care of ourselves too. 

With that new learning and energy building over the last few weeks we were ready to tackle the first day of school. Our young people entered the building full of excitement.  We intentionally and voluntarily Yondr phones to keep our learning space distraction free. Our students were able to fully engage with one another. I am in awe of how wonderful our first day of school went and I am anxious to start another day at PACHS!  Bright and early!!
