A lovely note from Esme about PT&E
Our Polar Bear Pod made their own polar bears out of perler beads last week

Our Scholar Athletes spent another Saturday exploring one of Oregons most beautiful places, Silver Falls State Park. They enjoyed a rain soaked bike, walked underneath water fakks, learned about ecology, climbed trees and had fun!
It was another memorable experience made possible by @passportoregon

It may be a week off at Portland Public schools but our Scholar Athletes are staying hard at work with our Spring Break Tennis Clinics!
All week our Scholar Athletes of all ages, as well as children from the community, have been coming to the SJRC to work on their games and have fun with Coach Vu, Coach Jelena and Coach Ben.

We were excited to launch our partnership with SMART - Start Making A Reader Today this past Tuesday 3/21. SMART is an organization that works throughout the state and uses volunteer readers to provide literacy support for students in grades K-3.
Each Scholar Athlete reads with their SMART volunteer for 30 minutes per 5 and receives a book to take with them to start their own home library. There are currently 10 Scholar Athletes paired with SMART Readers and we are hoping to grow our program in the months to come.
Third grade reading level is widely considered to be a key indicator of future educational success and SMART is a key element in supporting our goal of having all of our scholar athletes reading at the 3rd grade level by 2020.

We took another trip with @passportoregon this time exploring the Oregon coast! A guide lead us on a hike near Fort Clatsop and then we hit beach. Another adventure in the books and another memorable weekend for our scholar athletes!

On Saturday, March 3rd, we kicked off our partnership with @passportoregon Our Scholar Athletes visited Hoyt Arboretum and learned all about Oregon's amazing natural diversity on a hike led by a local guide. This weekend we are headed to the Oregon Coast for more exploration and more fun!

PT&E is excited to be partnering with SMART - Start Making A Reader Today starting in March and we are looking for volunteers to read with our scholar athletes.
Reading ability and success in school go hand in hand and SMART gives children grades K-3 the extra support they need to thrive. By giving just a couple hours of your week you can make an invaluable impact on the kids we work with!
If you're interested in becoming a SMART volunteer at PT&E email Coach Patrick at email@example.com

Sometimes injuries keep our coaches and scholar athletes off the tennis court but it doesn't keep them from working hard #grinding #hardwork
