Literacy and Publications

Grab a cup of coffee at the Purple Perk and read a copy of the award-winning Purple Press, Yearbook or Gazebo Literary Magazine! These clubs are great complements to student life at PAHS, providing fun and valuable content through the year. The Purple Perk is located in the PAHS Library.

Book Club
The Book Club is for avid readers in all grades. Students meet on cycle day 6 during Flex in I-5 to discuss a variety of novels and genres.  We focus on literature that is typically not read in the academic classroom and have lively discussions. All members have input into our reading selections regardless of seniority.  If you love to read, analyze, and talk about books, this is the club for you. Advisor: Julie Spinozzi

Gazebo is a writing circle dedicated to cultivating and sharing the artistic talents of students at the high school. Writers of all abilities are welcome to meet in a supportive setting to compose and receive feedback on poems and short stories. Our work culminates in the publication of a literary magazine showcasing the creative writing and visual art of the school. If you’re interested in joining, you can speak to Mr. LaLuna.
