Congratulations to this 7th grader for being recognized as April Athlete of the Month. He is a cross country runner, a starter on the basketball team, and captain of the golf squad. His leadership on the golf course has been monumental to the development of our young squad and his willingness to commit to multiple PES sports teams makes him an invaluable athlete. Thank you to our partner Creekside Smiles for sponsoring our Athlete of the Month program! #pesthankfulthursday

Congratulations to our April Artists of the Month! Our talented 2nd grader’s enchanting landscape showcases her thoughtful use of background and foreground elements, which help to create a captivating sense of depth and dimension in her composition.
