The start of the school year is full of hope and promise. It is also the start of our Fall Giving Campaign – The 1st Give, when we ask all families to invest in the future of our children by investing in our school.

California public funding does not fund all of PEC’s educational programs and specialized teachers. Specifically, the Fall Giving Campaign is how we raise money to pay for GARDEN LAB, ART, MUSIC, P.E., and  SCIENCE but also field trips, teacher needs, and more.

In this “First Give,” the PTA is looking to us – the parents and families – to invest in the future of our children by investing in our school.  The “ask” is $250 per student per year. However, our goal is to get 100% school wide participation and we would like for all families to participate, no matter how big or small the contribution. Every dollar counts to help keep our enrichment programs going and be able to offer the other support our donations provide to our students and teachers.
