PPIE Week of the Stars 2020

We have had such a fun week celebrating teachers and coming together as a community to support teaching and learning in PUSD.  Thank you to everyone who participated in PPIE’s Week of The Stars. We are pleased to announce that we raised over $70,000 (net) for our schools; thanks to our sponsors, donors, and participants.

What's new:

2020-2021 Inspire Student Grant

Every year PPIE provides grants to fund up to $500 for student projects or special events that support student achievement in all areas.  This year, projects should also support the PUSD Strategic Plan mission: “Our students will make a better world.”  We are looking forward to your submissions and anticipate that while this year is unique, we will still be able to support our students in their independent projects in a new way.

Grant applications are now being accepted through Nov 13. Please visit to apply and know more.
