Portland Adventist Academy Holds Pink Out PE

Portland Adventist Academy (PAA) girls’ physical education students joined the efforts of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by holding Pink Out PE.

Every October, a bouncing crowd of PAA girls, dressed head-to-toe in pink, walk and wave to all who pass them along the busy roads of PAA’s neighborhood. Their leader is the PAA girls' health and PE teacher, Linda Johnson, who has a unique gift for inspiring her students and others to live an active life in creative ways.

NMSC Honors Two PAA Students

More than 1.5 million students took the PSAT last year. Only 34,000 students scored in the top 3 percent and were named Commended Students by the NMSC.
