Teacher Grants – As this year has been such a challenging year and our teachers have gone above and beyond to nurture, enrich and keep our students safe, the PTA Board voted unanimously to award the grant to all of the teachers who applied. Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Zach Frazier, we were able to add an additional $500 to make the total dollar amount awarded $1500!  Congratulations to the following teachers: Mrs. Boyce, Mrs. Breualt, Ms. Eilers, Mrs. Minardi, Mrs. DeMarco, and Mrs. Doose!

Spring Book Fair – We are excited to be partnering with Anderson’s for our annual Spring Book Fair!  The fair is currently live and will be open for ordering through Tuesday, March 23rd.  Families can select home delivery (small fee), pickup at our local Anderson’s bookstore, or opt to have your order conveniently delivered to school.  As in years past, all profits will benefit the Pierce Downer school library. In keeping with tradition, there is also the option to purchase and donate a book to your student’s classroom library.  Teacher wish lists are currently accessible on the book fair website (see below).  This is a great way to stock your student’s classroom library!!
