Innovative approaches to teaching and learning within the Port Aransas Independent School District
The PAISD staff to continually learn, apply their knowledge, share their expertise, and lead their profession
The community an opportunity to invest in the future of Port Aransas through the development and encouragement of our children
A source of funding for the PAISD
The Port Aransas Education Foundation (PAEF) was founded in August 2006 to raise funds used to create exceptional and enriching educational experiences for the students in the Port Aransas Independent School District (PAISD). Our goals and those of our supporters do not include aspects of test results but rather involve making available experiences and opportunities that will enhance education for the students at PAISD.
We encourage PAISD teachers to think outside the test!
What the Teachers Are Saying...
The symphony is such an incredibly enriching experience for our students and the parents who choose to attend. This is an opportunity most students would never have if it weren't for this grant. I cannot say enough positive things about this experience!
The virtual reality goggles have been such a great addition to our classroom! It's pretty cool to hear kids wanting to use resources PAEF has funded. Having this resource has allowed every student to be involved & being involved makes all the difference in the world.
Thank you for all the ways that I am aware of that you benefit these kids, the district, and the community-at-large. And I know there is much more than just what I've seen. Please let your Foundation colleagues know how much our students are being helped from your collective effort.
We purchased a total of 97 ACER netbooks with the combined funds from PAEF and the High School technology budget. These are being used daily. This is a wonderful asset to our school and is positively impacting the academic achievement of our students every day. Thank you again so much for all that you do.
My classes are using the new tools and equipment every day, and they are enjoying them immensely. Thanks so much!
Second grade had a fantastic time at the Corpus Christi Coast Guard Station...We got to see inside a helicopter and sit inside a jet. We saw a demonstration about the basket the coast guard uses to save lives. The students even got to sit in the basket! Thank you for our grant.
The fifth grade took a field trip to Rockport to The Fulton Mansion and the Texas Maritime Museum. The PAEF sponsored the Maritime Museum. We had a wonderful time... We are so lucky to have the Education Foundation support our school and students. Field trips truly broaden the children’s horizons and make learning exciting.
