Thank you from
Heather Frank,
PEF Executive Director

I would like to thank the people of Piedmont for offering me such a warm and enthusiastic welcome. In my first few weeks here, I have learned a great deal about this amazing community, and the strong work of the Piedmont Education Foundation. As the school year wraps up, we are deep in planning for next year – gathering data for the Directory, developing messaging for the Giving Campaign, and recruiting volunteers for upcoming events. I look forward to working with the PEF team and Board and the greater community to support Piedmont students, teachers, and parents.

Our  Elementary Schools Need Your Support
One of the highlights of this year's Spring Fling was a wonderful video created by Piedmont parent, Phil Lorin.  Featuring students from Beach, Havens, and Wildwood, this video celebrates our schools and the wonderful education they provide for our children.

A Wonderful Night for Spring Fling
From the beginning, Piedmont parents have enjoyed a good party.  20 years ago, Spring Fling started as “Piedmont Entertains” – a silent auction of Parent Parties that included such offerings as “A Shakespeare Picnic” and “A Family Affair at Stinson Beach.” Over the years, the event has grown and, in the process, raised millions of dollars for our schools.  The tradition continued on Friday, March 31st as over 350
tri-school parents came together to celebrate and support Beach, Havens, and Wildwood.
