Please Review Pacific!
One easy, zero-cost way you can support Pacific School is by writing a short review of our TK-6th school and/or Pacific Preschool. Just three minutes of your time makes a big difference! Right now we have very few reviews, which makes it harder for families to find out about our award-winning programs and small, supportive community.
Please leave a review in any of these places:
If you share your reviews with email@example.com, Elizabeth can also add them to the school website. Thanks so much!!!

Good condition children's/YA book donations wanted!
March is National Reading Month and our Pacific School Read-A-Thon! This year, we’re trying something different. In lieu of the spring Scholastic book fair, introducing Buck-A-Book swap! Students and families are encouraged to drop off gently used children’s/YA books to the office. Books will be available for purchase for – you guessed it – a buck a book (or other donation amount). You can also pay it forward and purchase tickets so someone else can pick a book. All proceeds benefit PSF/the library and our school community so clean out your bookshelves then fill them up with some new favorites! Happy reading!
Extra Tea Towels Available for Purchase
All 2022-23 students, staff and teachers created a self portrait drawing and the drawings were combined to create one school tea towel. A limited number of tea towels are available in Black, Blue or Red. Tea towels are $20 each and can be purchased in the school office.
