Letter from the Principal

Dear Members of the PAA Community:

We have reached the time of year when those who are counting down the number of school days are able to do so with the fingers of just two hands. I encourage our students to savor this one last full week of school as they prepare to demonstrate how much they have grown academically during this school year. (Final exams will occur on June 1 and 2. The Final Exam Schedule can be viewed here.)

This is a good time for students to connect with students in other grades regarding the textbooks they will need for the next school year. A beautiful way for our current freshmen to welcome and connect with our incoming freshmen would be to initiate a conversation that includes an offer regarding textbooks. A beautiful way for all of us to welcome and connect with our incoming freshmen would be to cheer them on at their eighth grade graduation ceremonies (May 24: OCS, June 1: PAE, June 2: COAS).

I continue to be encouraged by the number of students who have enrolled in the freshman and sophomore classes at Paradise Adventist Academy for the 2022-2023 school year. It appears that there will be close to 20 students in the sophomore class, and close to 15 students in the freshman class. The junior and senior classes will be smaller in quantity, but still great in quality.

We continually strive to improve Paradise Adventist Academy, and we understand how important it is that we receive feedback from our students and parents. For that reason, we will soon invite you to complete a Parent Satisfaction Survey. These surveys are most useful when most of our “stakeholders” participate. For that reason, I hope that each of our students and parents will complete the survey when given the opportunity.

I continue to be grateful for the opportunity to partner with you in the ministry of Christian education, and I wish you God’s richest blessings.
