Another school year is almost upon us, and with that comes a new online registration process. PPIE is part of that process! You will find us there, continuing our partnership with Pleasanton families, to support our schools through our Annual Giving Fund Campaign. You will be able to make your annual donation to PPIE when you make your school purchases through Future Fund or Donate Now here on the PPIE website. PPIE’s suggested annual donation is $350 per student, or any amount that is meaningful to your family.
We are the 501(c)3 non-profit foundation supporting all Pleasanton students, helping maintain high quality education by raising funds for critical programs and services. Thanks to the generosity of our community, PPIE has provided funding for instructional coaches (providing support to teachers and students with technology, early literacy and math), technology needs at all schools, technology specialists and smaller class sizes in recent years.
Although the PPIE Board recently embarked on a search for a new Executive Director, the volunteers and Board members who drive our organization’s success, and the success of the Giving Fund, remain hard at work. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of our Executive Team officers: President Stephen Hilton, Vice President Kelly French, Treasurer Laurie Walker-Whiteland, Past President Bob Miller, or Secretary Jodie Fialho. If you or someone you know is interested in applying, please see our Executive Director Request for Candidates. For more information, please see our Press Release.
In addition, we would like to warmly welcome new PUSD Superintendent Rick Rubino to the Board of PPIE, and announce that Jim Hansen will remain with us as a community Board member. We’re looking forward to another great year!
