Jersey Mike’s Gives Back to PEF

Jersey Mike’s Gives Back to PEF

Jersey Mike’s culture of giving is as much as part of their heritage as oil and vinegar. And not only do they make a good sub, but they also make a difference by giving back to the community. Jersey Mike’s has opened their first Palos Verdes location at the Peninsula Center. From Dec 1 thru Dec 12, Jersey Mike’s will give back to Peninsula Education Foundation to support our PVPUSD students and schools. Just use one of the coupons below!

Major Donor Reception

Major Donor Reception

In appreciation of our donors who have given $2,500 or more this school year, PEF will be hosting a special reception on November 18 at the newly renovated La Venta Inn. 

As is tradition each year, we will honor the Chuck Miller Teacher Grant recipients at this reception. Thank you to Chuck Miller for his generous support of this important teacher grant program, which allows for greater innovation in the classroom. This year, 34 grants have been awarded to teachers in the Palos Verdes Peninsula School District. Click HERE to see the list of this year’s recipients.

If you would like to join us on this special evening, donate or pledge $2,500 to PEF and you will receive an email invitation!

Thank you to our sponsors: La Venta Inn, Made by Meg and First Republic.

Back to School Registration Time

Back to School Registration Time

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.
