Q. I'd like to get involved, how do I volunteer?
A. Check out our Havens Slack channel for volunteer opportunities here and also look at opportunities here (classroom and campus opportunities are limited because of distance learning). If you're looking to volunteer in your child's classroom or on field trips, you will have that opportunity to sign up in your child's classroom on Back to School night.
Q. What is Spring Fling?
A. Spring Fling is an annual celebration of Piedmont's three elementary schools that brings together our entire community in support of our children's education. Spring Fling is one of Piedmont Education Foundation's largest fundraisers and the money raised goes directly to the schools. We know how important it is to educate the whole child and since state funding alone cannot do that, we band together to ensure that all Piedmont students continue to have strong programs in science, technology, math, music, visual art, library, social-emotional learning, and more. In order for Spring Fling to be a true success, we need 100% participation from parents. Please be on the lookout for the many opportunities during the year to give time, talent, and/or treasure by volunteering, donating/purchasing auction items, and simply by attending the spring gala. We hope you will consider ways in which you can contribute to our amazing community.
Q. What is PEF?
A. P.E.F. stands for Piedmont Education Foundation. The Piedmont Education Foundation is a community-based, registered 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to promote academic excellence, champion innovation, and provide sustained financial support to the Piedmont Unified School District.
