It's not too late to help low-income children stay safe, active, and learning this summer!
Your contribution to PAST&E today will enable "scholar athletes" like Franciso, Kassandra, Holli, Tsiyon, and Alberto (pictured) to participate in our nine-week "Serving Up Success" Summer Program at St. Johns Racquet Center (SJRC).
With full days of writing, math, history, art, science, fitness, tennis, and more, our rigorous activities keep at-risk children academically engaged, physically fit, and safe from the dangers of gang activity in their neighborhoods while their parents work.

Portland Parks & Recreation Park Rangers visited our program to share with us the important role that the Rangers play in keeping Portland's Parks safe, clean and fun for families! We even took the oath to become Junior Rangers! Thanks for visiting our program!
The 2013 St. Johns Parade theme was Vintage Family Fun, so the PAST&E Families decked out a truck with our favorite peace words and colorful flowers and took our fitness dances literally on the road! We had a blast together and even won an award for our peace theme!
Miguel, Jasmine, Natisha, and Ristom (left to right with Coaches Anna Becker, John Block and Fitz Paccione) from the Felton Factor participated in a Challenger-level tournament at the Sprinker Tennis Center in Tacoma, WA on March 22-24. Facing tough competition, they had fun, learned much, and held their own. Congratulations, scholar athletes, for bringing home trophies in the 12 and Under Divisions! Our young Felton Factor scholar athletes are making their benefactor, Matt Felton (former Board Chair) very proud!
