PGE needs your help to help its students!
PGE is ready to join the Student Support Network and needs help raising the necessary startup funds of $1,800 ($200 has already been raised). The Network matches these funds, which will be used to set up the “Panda Pantry”– a location in the school where staff take students in need for food, clothing, school supplies and personal care items, and make the first purchases of these items as necessary. Can you help? Any amount would be greatly appreciated!
Donate at https://www.studentsupportnetwork.org/donations-2/ choose the tax-deductible donation amount and be sure to choose “Pine Grove Elementary” from the drop down menu. Your support will help establish a legacy of helping kids in need in your own community!
The Panda Pantry is a joint project of the PTA and school staff, under the supervision of the Student Support Network and will serve all PGE students, including 180 students qualifying for Free Meals (30% of all students), 80 students who also qualify for SNAP benefits, and 10 students who are identified as homeless.
The Panda Pride Fund Drive is underway for 2019!
This is the PTA’S biggest fundraiser so please show your PANDA POWER by helping to raise money for our school.
Our goal is $14,000 – the more we raise the more activities we can provide for our students!
Students will be celebrating their success at a healthy initiative “Fun Run” sponsored by the PTA on November 15th during their specials time! (To see your kids run, volunteer to help out on the 15th)
100% of all donations will enable the PTA to provide funding for activities like: Assemblies, Special Classroom Resources, After school Clubs, Ballroom Dancing, Homework Planners, Reading/Writing Experiences and Incentives
Students can use the pledge sheet and letter to ask friends and family members for donations. Also, ask some of your favorite local businesses to be a Business Sponsor with the Business Sponsor form.
