As we settle into this unique school year, we are reflecting on the many things we are grateful for at Peirce: an incredible group of teachers and staff members who support, care for, and educate our children everyday, a close-knit community of children and families who are committed to staying strong and staying connected through this pandemic, and a new school administrator who is engaged with the community and dedicated to making this a successful year for all at our school!
During these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever to show our support. We believe that our teachers are the most valuable resource we have, and we want to focus our work this year on providing them with what they need to feel supported and to do their jobs effectively. The Peirce School Annual Fund is the PTO’s largest source of revenue each year. While this year is different in many ways, our need to fundraise is the same. The funds we raise through the annual fund will support some of the unexpected costs related to COVID-19 and will allow us to provide each teacher and specialist with a classroom budget, to help support our library, and to provide tools and resources to our teachers. The annual fund will also help us to develop and support unique community building activities. We hope you will join us in supporting our school and donating to the Peirce School Annual Fund!
How much should I give to the annual fund?
We realize that this year is like no other. Many of us have been faced with financial burdens due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Peirce annual fund remains our school’s greatest resource to help the students and teachers in our community. Please give as generously as you can. You can make a one-time donation, or spread your gift out on a monthly basis via Paypal. Thank you in advance for your generosity. Please contact Peirce PTO with any questions.
