Congratulations to Paine Primary's Little Huskies!!

Paine Primary's PE Department recieved BIG NEWS this past week! Our huskies raised over $24,000 for the American Heart Association through Jump Rope for Heart during the 2014-2015 school year!! This placed Paine Primary 2nd in its territory and 3rd in the state last year. The $2,700 received will go toward helping stock the gyms when our new schools open.

Thank you for your support! We could not have done it without you!!

Buddyin' Up on the Buddy Bench

Being the new kid on the playground or just finding a new friend to play with can be hard for young students. To help ease the anxiety of finding a new buddy, Paine Primary now has a "buddy bench". The Buddy Bench is a way that students can say, “Hey, I’m looking for someone to play with!”

The bench donated by the Coach Karen Johns and the HTHS girls' softball team is located on the large playground, and we are so very excited to see it's already been in use!! Thank you, Coach Johns and the HTHS girls' softball team for helping our students learn to be a friend to all!!
