City BBQ Fundraiser – Take the night off from making dinner while supporting PD! This Thursday February 7th, City BBQ will give 25% of orders placed between 10:30am and 10pm to Pierce Downer!  Simply print or show this flyer on your phone!

Pierce Tavern Night – RESCHEDULED!- Help Pierce Downer take over Pierce Tavern! The new date for the fundraiser is February 19th from 6-9 pm. Ten percent of all sales go to our PTA!  Dine in or carry out. Click here for the flyer and click here for more information on future PTA food nights. Contact Nicki Blattner at with any questions.

Service Learning Committee – SLC & Student Council are partnering up! Have you been “tidying up” lately? Did you know cleaning out your closets can HELP OTHERS and SAVE THE EARTH! Willowbrook High School in Villa Park houses a “Warrior Boutique” in their school which provides new or gently used clothes for free to high school students in need. Many students who attend this neighboring high school come from low-income households and often times aren’t able to purchase items they need for important events like interviews, attire for a job, graduation ceremony, etc. The Student Council and Service Learning Committee are collecting professional items for men and women – bags, purses, ties, interview shirts and pants, suits, dress shoes, vocational attire, winter and other seasonal coats, and dresses (casual and formal). Not only can “tidying up” be a random act of kindness, but you will be helping the environment by recycling your clothing! Donations can be dropped off in the boxes at school. We will be collecting donations between February 12 and 22. (If you’re helping at a Valentine’s Day classroom party, bring your donations then!)

PTA Meeting– The minutes from our January PTA meeting can be viewed here.

Six Flags Great America “Read to Succeed” Program – Reminder that forms must be turned in to teachers by February 15th.  Any questions, please contact Laima Palubinskas or Nancy Deaton
SAVE THE DATE–  Pierce Downer’s Trivia Night Fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, April 13th at 7:30pm, at the Downer’s Grove American Legion.  More information coming soon, but for now- put it on your calendars!  We are currently looking for auction items!!  If you, or someone you know, would be interested in donating an item (i.e. sports tickets, restaurant gift cards, vacation options, or any other ideas), please contact Veronica Roche, at, or Megan Shoemaker, at  Thank you, in advance, for helping to support our kids!
