    Join us on the Paden campus for our annual back-to-school event. Meet and reconnect with other Paden families, have an ice cream (this year we'll be offering individually wrapped ice cream sandwiches or popsicles), and find out who your child's teacher will be for the year.*

    *you may also look up your child's teacher assignment in Aeries - but it's more fun to eat ice cream with friends!

    Back to school DATA CONFIRMATION

    IMPORTANT: Student Data Confirmation will be available through the Aeries Family Portal starting August 7th. If you are new user, you should receive an email or letter from AUSD with a temporary password and instructions to set up an account. 

    Before August 12, please update your student's information in Aeries and read documentation on the AUSD Back to School Data Confirmation page, including the Parent Handbook. Make sure your student is up to date or complete with immunizations and an oral exam. Data Confirmation needs to be completed and forms need to be received (if applicable) before your student can begin school! 


    Paden will once again be using the ParentSquare website and app (Apple; Android) for all communication for the 2021-2022 school year,

    Using ParentSquare will ensure you have the most up to date information about what is happening with the school, your child's classroom, and with the PTA.

    Use "Sign Up/Create Password" field - if it doesn't work, you are using an email that Paden does not have on record, and you will be presented with a form to fill out requesting access. These go to district office and they will work with you to get the account activated.
