PiE News Update

Dear Palo Verde families,

Thank you to all who supported and gave during our recent Partners in Education “Donation Days” drive. Parents at our school and across the district were incredibly generous and helped us get every dollar of our $250,000 challenge grant.

At Palo Verde, 140 families have donated to PiE’s annual campaign. We are well on our way and need just 49 more Palo Verde families to reach our school’s participation goal this year.

The strength of our schools and PiE relies on the contributions of ALL of our parents. If you have already given, a heartfelt thank you. If you have not made your donation this year, we hope you will consider a donation today. Please visit the PiE website at and give what you can. Your contribution — large or small — counts!
