Update from PEG
Dear BES Parent,
Welcome back to school! Have you heard about PEG (Parent Engagement Group)? PEG is a group of BES parent volunteers who meet once a month to be involved, engaged and volunteer for Basalt Elementary School.
PEG is responsible for several school events and programs including Bingo Night, Teacher Appreciation Week, Adopt-A-Staff, Teacher Conference Meals, Fundraisers (such as popsicle & bake sales) and much more. All of the money raised from these events go directly to support our teachers. The last two years, PEG was able to honor our dedicated teachers who have been teaching for 5-25 years, with a financial award. We would like to do that again this year, as well as support teachers needs throughout the school year.
Of course, we couldn’t hold all of these events and programs and help our children’s teachers without the support of dedicated parents. However, we do understand that parents are working, taking care of younger siblings and running out of time in the day to volunteer a few times a month for all of our fundraising needs.
We know how time consuming all of the fundraising efforts are throughout the year, so PEG is continuing our efforts with the Annual Fund for 2018-2019. Last year we raised over $2,500 with the GoFundMe effort and we are hoping to surpass that amount this year.
Each family has the opportunity to donate whatever they are comfortable with, which will enable us to host MORE community building events, and do FEWER fundraising events. Our hope is to have 100% participation from BES families. Every dollar will make a difference in helping our teachers and providing them with the tools and help they may need.
Thank you for supporting BES & PEG! Together, we are making a difference.
If you are interested in sponsoring or volunteering at one of the PEG community events, like Bingo Night, Movie Night or the International Dinner, please feel free to contact Linda Consuegra or Tracy Sgroi directly.
