Dear Port Angeles Families, Our hearts are heavy as we learn more about the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, yesterday. These words feel small in the face of this community's immense grief. It is a struggle for all of us, adults and children alike, to understand why and how such a horrific attack could occur at a school.
Another successful scholarship night is in the books! This night celebrated the 106 seniors who were awarded more than $2 million from 150 donors. From that, more than $500,000 came from local donors and organizations! Thank you to ALL of the incredible donors and businesses who support our students’ achievements at PAHS. Hats off to Andrea Dusenko, Katie Kozlosky, and Matthew Moore for directing and coordinating this year’s scholarship program.
The last day for seniors is Friday, June 10th. The last day for all other grades is Wednesday, June 15th. Students will have a regular start time and have an early release/half day. There is no late start.
