About Our Drive
FOPBE holds its annual Penguin Pride Contribution Drive each fall and in 2017 we surpassed our goal of $12,000 and raised over $17,000! Thank you so much to all the generous parents and community members who made this possible. We didn’t meet our goal of 100% participation, but had an impressive 46% of PBE families that contributed to our efforts.
The school year provides several opportunities to contribute financially to the school – this contribution drive, the jog-a-thon in November, the auction fundraiser in April. We are so grateful that our first fundraiser was a huge success and 100% of proceeds from the drive directly benefit our school. By contributing you have helped FOPBE continue valuable programs for our students, including science, PE enrichment and performing arts enrichment, and new in 2017, FOPBE is funding playground facilitators.
During the 2016-2017 school year FOPBE spent $520 per student!! This is an incredible amount and is only possible through the generosity of the families and community that support PBE.
The contribution drive will reopen on September 4, 2018. Please check back then to make your gift and thank you in advance for your support of PBE!
