Thank you Monica's Baker Boy donuts for supporting the PAES Lab.  You, too, Ms. Blair, you and the donuts are great!  

The PAES Lab would also like to thank Belmar Lanes on Fort St. in Lincoln Park for supporting us by sponsoring our bowling fundraiser.  We had a great time and made some money, too.


Taylor Public Schools Foundation for Educational Excellence

Every year in December the Taylor Public Schools Foundation for Educational Excellence honors those who offer scholarships to our Kennedy and Truman seniors. This year was no exception with a breakfast at the Taylor Schools Chopping Block restaurant. Chef Ostrowski with his assistants Samantha Ansell and Christine Shiroda have a wonderful program with the student run restaurant and the food is outstanding. Thank you everyone who offers scholarships to our students!
