Our Students Went Back to School
with All Needed Supplies
Once again, you and our community ensured that all students had backpacks and school supplies for the first day of school on Monday.

A big shout-out to Lauren McCann and Anne Peterson,our new Backpack chairpeople, who coordinated donations of school supplies from many businesses and individuals in the community. Then our volunteer team loaded up over 500 backpacks with school supplies and delivered them to all PASD buildings plus two pre-schools.

If you donated supplies or funds towards this program, I would like to say a big THANK YOU on behalf of PCEF and our schools!

We'd also like to recognize local businesses that are hosting donation boxes - you can still drop off your donation of school supplies to one of these generous partners (supplies are needed throughout the school year):

Thanks also to Women of the Moose/ Uncle B's BBQ and SEI Investments for their generous donations.
Phantom Fundraiser is in MARCH This Year!
Mark your calendars now because our annual Phantom Fundraiser will be held in MARCH this year! The dinner and auction will be on Friday, March 2, 2018 at Rivercrest Golf Club and Preserve.

We are always looking for people who want to help plan this event - please email me if you'd like more information!

You'll hear more about this event in a few months - please make a note of the March 2nd date and get ready to have fun while supporting PCEF.
Here in the PCEF office, we are gearing up for another year of helping our students through programs like our Activities Access grants, teacher and principal grants, and Phantom Food Packs. You can learn more about these programs on our website here.

Of course, none of this is possible without our generous donors. Thank you to everyone who has made a donation, donated school supplies, helped with our events, and spread the word about PCEF!

Best wishes for a wonderful school year~
