Welcome Back!

We're ALL excited to be back in school--no more of that irritating sleeping in! Classes started on Wednesday with 51 students enrolled, 8 teachers, Dr. Linda Becker our new principal, and a part time office assistant. Please be sure to check your email every week for an edition of Cougar Tracks, where you can find out important, interesting, and random information. Welcome to PAA!

This has been a busy summer for PAA students and alumni. We caught up with Sam Seaton, working at the Love Gives warehouse, matching Camp Fire survivors with free furniture. Now he’s off to Southern.

This Weekend
PAA has organized a student and family worship and picnic to celebrate the start of our school year. We invite you and your family to come and fellowship. Please bring a life jacket if you plan on participating in recreational activities at the lake. We encourage you to bring camping chairs, extra water and an easy-up for more shading, as well as a lake toy to hang out in the water if you like. 
Location: Stabel Residence 20 Seth Lane, Chico, CA (Use Google Maps).
