#GivingTuesday is a national movement celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and after the widely-recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, inspiring people to come together to help communities and give back.
Congratulations to our 2019 Chuck Miller Teacher Grant recipients! Because of your generous donations, PEF has awarded 33 grants to PVPUSD teachers at 13 different schools in support of innovation in the classroom.
In 1990, Peninsula Education Foundation established the Chuck Miller Teacher Grant program due to the generosity of Chuck Miller, former Rancho Vista Elementary principal, past president of PEF and local business leader. PEF’s Chuck Miller Teacher Grants are an important resource for teachers to provide unique experiences and learning opportunities for students that are outside of the classroom budget.
For 40 years we have worked together to create bright futures for all students in the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District. We are so fortunate to live in a community that values excellent education. A high-quality education requires more than what the state can provide, but because of our generous parents, community supporters and local businesses, our students receive the best! Thank you for continuing to support all students in 17 Palos Verdes Peninsula public schools. We couldn’t do it without you!
PEF’s Kindergarten Club recognizes families who donate to PEF as they enter PVPUSD with their kindergarten student. Kindergarten Club is now open to incoming kindergarten students for the 2019-2020 school year. For just over $2/day ($750), you can be part of the PEF family, help keep our schools strong and receive a free PEF yard sign!
