4th Grade Fundraiser for Pitching in for Kids and The Alanna and Joshua Foundation

The 4th grade is raising money for Pitching in for Kids and The Alanna and Joshua Foundation, in memory of Alanna DeMella, who was a third-grade teaching assistant at Peirce.

  • Tuesdays 4/21, 4/28: Dine at Not Your Average Joe’s to Support 4th Grade Fundraising. Bring this flyer and 15% of your total purchase (excluding alcohol/tax/gratuity) will be donated to the fundraiser.
  • Peirce School sweatshirts are on sale to support the fundraiser. With spring sports starting again, this would be a great new sweatshirt to wear to practices and games! To order, see the notice sent home with your children!

5/6 – Massachusetts Walk and Bike to School Day

Come celebrate Massachusetts Walk and Bike School Day on May 6th, at Peirce!  Participating in the MA Walk and Bike to School Day is a great way to celebrate our long awaited warm weather and get students excited for the spring.  Walking to school gets your brain in gear for the day, helps the environment, and makes it safer for everyone to make their way to school.  There will be music on the big playground and small prizes for Peirce students who walk to school or do laps around the playground.

Flamingo Flocking Fundraising

Volunteers Needed for Spring Fair

This year the Peirce PTO will again host the annual Spring Fair in June. We are looking for some folks to assist the current organizers (a few lovely ladies who have been running the fair for many years!) in planning this year’s fair and then take it over next year. If you are interested in running the Crafts, Food, or Planning please contact Lori Pescatore. We would love to be able to show you the ropes this year and then hand it off next year. This is a wonderful tradition we have had at Peirce for many years and we would love for it to continue.

Benefit the PTO by Running the Cause + Event 5K

Sign up to run the Cause + Event Boston 5K on Sunday, May 17th, choose Peirce Elementary PTO as your nonprofit, and $15 will be donated to the PTO! The more runners we have, the more money we raise; if you would like to start or join a Peirce team, please contact Angela Snyder. This race is extremely family friendly featuring a kids fun run and other kids programming; it has also been chosen as the goal race for the Arlington Fit Girls program, where 125 fourth and fifth grade girls including girls from Peirce will be running this race as their first 5K.

If Peirce provides 10 or more volunteers for packet pick-up or race day logistics on May 17, Cause + Event will donate $100 to our PTO. This opportunity is limited to the first five nonprofits to register 10 or more volunteers, so please let Angela know if you can volunteer!

Check out the website www.causeandeventboston.com for more information and to register runners, or email Angela Snyder to discuss a Peirce team or to discuss volunteer opportunities!
