Portland Adult Education (PAE) students and teachers papered the school with Valentine’s Day messages this week to share their appreciation, love, wishes and optimism for the school and their community. They used colorful paper hearts to write answers to the questions: What do you love? About your life? About PAE?
The purpose of the heartfelt activity was explained in a message on the PAE blog: “We thought that Valentine’s Day could be our opportunity to share positive messages of love and appreciation for ALL of our students. In this challenging environment, where there are so many questions about where our country is headed in regard to education and immigration, we hope that this Valentine’s Day we will be able to create a senses of belonging and positive connection in our school community!”
