Had a great time touring the U of O! This was the first of many college visits our PT&E academy members will be participating in as they prepare for college next fall. The academy was also fortunate enough to have a small discussion with one of Oregon's awesome faculty members from the college of education about life experiences, higher education and the search for the perfect school & major. Thank you to Dr. Subramani for the coffee and words of wisdom! #ScoDucks
And we are back!!! The scholar athletes of PT&E returned to the St. John's Racquet center for after school program today for the first time this school year. They worked hard on and off the court. The year is off to a good start! #weback #afterschool #scholars #hardwork #swag

The Little Chimps have been working very hard on their models of animals and plants affected by climate change this week. So far, they have made honey bees (Monday) and polar bears (Tuesday). Today they continue and will make penguins. Finally, on Thursday, they are going to attempt to make dragon trees! #kidssavningtheearth #art #awesome #swag
