As a social and business responsibility, instead of illegally throwing away electronics in your dumpsters or storing them in valuable office and home spaces, dispose your unwanted electronics from September 20-24!
If you haven’t had a chance to donate to PEF, it’s not too late! PEF Pledge Day is Wednesday, September 29. You can donate now or make a pledge and pay later. Because of you, our children will receive not an adequate education, but an excellent one! Your donation funds elementary music teachers, PE teachers, school librarians, academic and comprehensive counselors, student wellness, STEM programs, College and Career Centers, additional teaches and more! GO TO PVPEF.ORG to pledge or donate today!

As you go through your child’s Back to School registration online packet, we are appreciative of you remembering Peninsula Education Foundation. We are so fortunate to live in a community where everyone values an excellent education for our children. So many parents choose to donate to PEF and support our children during registration time and we are grateful!
PVPUSD is rated the #4 Best School District in the LA area and in the Top 10 Best School Districts in California (Niche 2021) but yet we are one of the lowest funded districts in the state. With your help, we can bridge the funding gap between what our district receives and what it costs to provide an exceptional education.
If you already donated to PEF this 2021-22 school year, thank you! If not, please consider supporting our students and schools by clicking HERE.
