Dear PCSD Parents,
How about an easy and free option to make a difference for our students? Soon, PCEF will ask for your opinion in a short online survey . Your feedback will help shape the future of our organization and how we go above & beyond to support public education in Park City.
PCEF has partnered with the University of Utah's Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute to conduct this research.  You will receive an email with a link to an online survey that should take less than five minutes to complete.  
Make your voice heard! Thank you for your time during this busy season.

PCEF Scholar Circle Event Series at Glenwild
PCEF Scholar Circle members heard from district education leaders and PCHS students about the future of education at our annual event. It was an enlightening evening, and the students, who represented PCCAPS, Debate, and Robotics, were truly inspiring!

The PCEF Scholar Circle is comprised of families who give $1,000 or more yearly. Receiving an up close and personal look at education in our district during events like this throughout the year are one of the many benefits of membership.

Be sure to check out these photos from the event.

Nearly 400 Families Forgot Their Gift to PCEF This Fall! We Can't Provide Program Funding Without Everyone's Support.
Ooops - we forgot to send flyers home for Beat the Call, AND you couldn't give at School Registration. Now PCEF is short $40,000 from our Give $180 and Beat the Call parent appeal!
We can't sustain the 100 programs we fund in our schools, such as elementary coding and art, makerspaces, or One Book One Community, without everyone's support.

400 families who gave last year haven't given yet this year . Please consider giving your yearly gift to PCEF now.

Crystal Giles, Jeremy Ranch Coding Specialist
