The 2020 Parent Party (and the Silent Auction) -- previously rescheduled to August 29, 2020 -- have been cancelled.

As the laws and guidelines surrounding social distancing and social gatherings are ever-changing and evolving, at this point, it seems most prudent to look ahead to planning the party for Spring 2021.  

On Monday, June 1st, we will begin to automatically refund your purchase in full to the same credit card that you used for your purchase earlier this year. That said, if you would like to donate the cost of your ticket to the PTA, we would greatly appreciation that decision. You can choose to donate 50% OR 100% of the cost of your tickets to Pacific Elementary PTA, for which you’ll receive a letter noting your tax-deductible charitable donation.  Click below if you would like to donate the cost of your tickets.

Pacific's 4th-grade Odyssey of the Mind team recently competed in the 2020 Odyssey of the Mind Virtual World Finals.

Approximately 850 teams competed worldwide, with 40 participating from California. The final awards will be aired May 30th.

The 7 member team--Reagan Ertman, Cameron Geida, Cary Geida, Natalie Held, Brady Lange, Rehaan Mehrotra and Jack Schneider--coached by 2nd-grade teacher Michelle Lautanen had placed first in the Odyssey of the Mind Regional Tournament in February, and was excited to compete at the further levels. While the Pacific team, and all Odyssey of the Mind teams around the world, were not able to further compete in person, Odyssey of the Mind did what it does best and thought outside the box and made the World Finals virtual.

The Pacific team rose to the task, and spent the last month preparing to compete: First, they had to submit online a video of their long-term problem, which required them to remotely videotape themselves talking to the Judges about their performances for their long-term skit, "The Effective Detective: The Lost City of Atlantis", as well as photograph and submit online pictures of their various creations used in their problem to be scored by Judges. Second, the team had to virtually compete live in a spontaneous problem. The team safely social distanced in a back yard to provide creative answers to one question in a 25 minute time period. Then, they had to submit their response online before time expired.
