We did not actively raise much money this year as there is a healthy reserve, though the PTO did raise some money with the following:
Fruit Center School Give Back Week– Thank you to the Fruit Center and all those that shopped during the Give Back week. The Fruit Center generously donated $905 to the PTO!
Stop and Shop A-Plus Rewards – Thank you to all who registered and shopped at Stop and Shop. We just received a check for $906!
Hayward Photography – Thank you to Hayward for donating a portion of portrait sales to Pierce. The total received was $4301.
School Supply Orders – Families ordered school supplies and due to bulk purchases and a lot of volunteer effort, the PTO realized $3000 from this fundraiser. It’s a win/win – families get the convenience and fair price of the package and the PTO is able to support school activities with the funds.

Thank you for your continued support of Pierce students and staff! As we look forward to the 2018/19 school year, we have set up a calendar for Teacher Appreciation events. The incomparable Terrie McManus is moving on to MHS and we need a team to replace her. Please consider signing up to take the lead on a single Teacher appreciation event. Sign up solo or with a friend – the Pierce staff appreciates it!
The Pierce PTO wishes you a wonderful summer! If you would like to get your school supplies purchased early, the supply lists can be found here. If you purchased the school supply package, stay tuned for an email in August with assembly/pick up times.
