Students participated in a special Easter service in chapel this morning, followed by the flowering of the cross and the traditional campus egg hunt. Pastor Eric gave a special message to students, and the choir presented two musical selections. Classes will resume on Tuesday, April 23, after a short Easter break for our students and staff.
Today’s pep rally featured the cheerleaders performing a “Baby Shark” dance routine, and also recognized all of the athletes from the winter and spring sports. And, no Pan Am pep rally would be complete without the traditional money game (won by the Freshmen) and spirit competition (won by the Juniors)!
Students from various science classes participated in a campus-wide Science Symposium this afternoon. As opposed to a traditional science fair, students selected topics they were interested in learning more about and worked in pairs to research and present information on a variety of creative topics ranging from polymer slime to orange electricity.
This morning Pan Am students and staff gathered at the flag pole with their Rwandan classmates, wearing purple ribbons, in remembrance of the 25th anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsi (April 7, 1994). We prayed for the millions of people affected by the violence and gave thanks for the remarkable progress Rwanda has made as a nation since that dark time. Then, over lunch, six of our students shared a presentation with the student. We are grateful for our Rwandan students and their leadership on campus.
PPAS hosted its first College Fair on April 1, which was a huge success! Over 20 colleges and organizations were in attendance, and our juniors and seniors, along with students from 5 high schools in the local area had an opportunity to meet with representatives, gather information, and ask questions about the college admission process.
