What a way to spend a Saturday! Our Scholar Athletes hit the slopes of Mt. Hood to go snowshoeing with @mazamaspdx as a part of our Passport Oregon program. This was our second Passport Oregon trip of the year and we enjoyed a day of hiking, sledding and snow ball fights.
Thank you Mazamas for the wonderful day!

A huge thank you to the Maybelle Clark MacDonald Fund for generously donating $20,000 to support our Ready, Set, Read! Community Literacy Program.
Ready, Set, Read!, which started in 2017, empowers families to improve their literacy skills. With one-on-one tutoring, ongoing assessment, and community engagement, families receive the support they need to develop their literacy skills. We saw significant positive results with the program in 2018 and the number of students in our program reading at grade level doubled!
This impactful program would not be possible without this generous support! Thank you to the MCM Fund for positively impacting the lives of our Scholar Athletes and their families.
Another thank you to Intel, Oregon Community Foundation, Wells Fargo, KCura Gifts, Spirit Mountain Community Fund, Ross Stores, Umpqua Bank Community Giving, SMART and the Clark Foundation who have supported this important program. We appreciate you!

On Wednesday 1/23 we had what is becoming a regular occurrence: an @adidas volunteer day! Our Scholar Athletes were thrilled to have 24 volunteers from adidas join us as we worked on an “I have a dream” project, played MLK Jeopardy and of course hit the courts for some tennis!
adidas has been a fantastic supporter of PT&E and we are very thankful for all of the time given to PT&E and our Scholar Athletes.
Thanks adidas we look forward to having you back at PT&E soon!

It has become a yearly tradition for the generous members of the West Hills Racquet and Fitness Club (WHRFC) to choose a Scholar Athlete to buy a Christmas book for. On Tuesday 1/15 members of the WHRFC came to deliver these wonderful gifts! Our Scholar Athletes were thrilled to get copies of some of their favorite books or ones they have been excited to read.
Thank you to all of the members of the WHRFC who participated in what has become a wonderful yearly tradition! We greatly appreciate your support and our students love their new books!

This past Sunday 12 members of the PT&E family took a trip to the Mazamas Mountaineering Center to learn how to rock climb! Our Scholar Athletes learned proper rock climbing technique and got a chance to climb with the help of 7 wonderful Mazamas volunteers.
A huge thank you to @mazamaspdx for making this day possible! We are excited to partner with you more in the future. Here are a few photos from the event.
“What you are doing is making a huge difference in the kids' lives, and I hope you realize that. These kids may not realize it initially, but they will realize the opportunities that they have been given [at PT&E] and how much that makes a difference in the path of their lives.” - James Blake, Chairperson of USTA Foundation Board
He believes in us, and we hope you do too! Click below to learn more about one of our Scholar Athlete's success story, and help us reach our goal of $20,000 before the new year! We're already more than half-way there!
