Mr. Dallas Weis may be a new face to some people, but others will recognize him from his first tenure here at PAA. During this time, Mr. Weis enjoyed teaching Socials and Religion, and sponsoring a psychology club.   

He misses teaching, but does enjoy working as the PAA principal; he employs an open door policy to students and staff. He is committed to the success of PAA and is grateful for the opportunity.

Mr. Weis has a second passion of running. He has completed many marathons and half-marathons in Canada and the U.S. This passion for running has spanned over 30 years. He is committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle for all at PAA.

Principal

Mr. Dallas Weis

There have been many changes since I returned to PAA in 1998, perhaps the most significant has been the development of the Panthers Athletic Program. Today, thanks to teachers and volunteers, PAA has a great athletic program that participates in leagues and attends tournaments. PANTHERS ROAR!

My wife is also a teacher and in all our free time we operate a small farm with the usual animal collection of cows, donkeys, horses, dogs, cats and chickens. We also grow hay, garlic and Haskap berries. I enjoy photography and have a bit of a collecting bug, lots of Canadiana with the current focus being hockey cards.
