Dear PAES Family,

It is hard to believe that we are already at the end of the first semester. WOW,  have we ever had a busy and successful fall semester here at PAES!

This year has been an exciting time for me and my family as we made the journey from Houston (we just missed the floods) to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I had the wonderful opportunity this summer to hike many of the trails in our area and was able to marvel in the abundant gifts that God has given us through nature. We are all blessed to live in such a beautiful place. It is truly amazing!

Even more amazing, however, is my time spent serving at PAES. Every morning I have the privilege to stand at the door with Mrs. C, where we have the opportunity to greet the students as they come to school ready and happy to learn with smiles on their faces excited about what the day will bring. Throughout the day I see the students and teachers working together in the classrooms solving problems and sharing experiences. It is a beautiful thing to see the little ones gathered around their teachers listening to books being read, busy in lesson activities and singing songs about Jesus. Spending time in all our classrooms I am always reminded of the value of a Christian education.

During this holiday season, a time of thanks and reflection, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you for sharing your children with us and for your commitment to PAES. Each family, each student makes PAES the special place that it is! I also want to thank our staff for their hard work, dedication and example. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Many Blessings,

Brandon O’Neal
PAES Principal
