Peirce Pride Savings Bank Reopening this Month

Help your child learn the importance and benefits of saving! Help them open a Peirce Pride Savings Account!  The bank will reopen the last Friday of October, and be open most Fridays before school in the lobby near the gym. 5th grade students are the bankers, and it’s a great opportunity to see schoolmates, learn about money management, and the proud accomplishment of saving to pay for something they really want!

Flyers with more information will be coming home soon!

Questions? Email the bank managers, Amy Cooper: amyd4not@gmail.com or Carmel Murphy-Kotyan: carmelmurphy@kotyan.net,

We are still looking for a few more volunteers:


Clothing Donations Needed

Our school nurse is running low on clothing for the small ones and could benefit from clothing from those who are a bit older.  If you have a 2nd grader who has outgrown his/her shorts, track pants, jeans, shirts, we would welcome the donation to the nurse’s office at Peirce Elementary School. Feel free to drop off at the box located near the main office. And thanks in advance.  Every little bit helps!
