PPIE Super Match Ends TONIGHT!
PPIE Super Match Ends Super Bowl Sunday. Act now and double your impact.

Through February 4, PPIE is able to double your donation with matching funds from our major donors - your donation will fund: librarians and site tech specialists, new class sections in High School, and added classroom intervention to help students with math, technology and reading.  This school year, your funds provided 2,250 extra hours for librarians and 2,070 extra hours for site technology specialists. In our high schools, you funded extra class sections for English and support counseling, a part-time library assistant, and new computers. This keeps school libraries open longer, ensures computer access and training for teachers and students, and lowers class size! Visit www.ppie.org to learn more, donate and take our survey to tell us what staff to fund!

Our students need your help to maintain the high level of education that is synonymous with Pleasanton schools. Thank you for supporting our schools!   Does your company offer corporate matching?
