INVEST Dollars Touch EVERY Child

Percy Priest Elementary (PPE) is a special place because of our teachers. They went above and beyond last year to ensure that each child had what he/she needed to succeed at home and at school. This was no small feat. This year, let’s make sure we INVEST in all of our fabulous teachers so they have the tools and support they need for all our children to thrive at PPE.

What is the INVEST Campaign?

PPE PTO’s annual fundraising campaign that raises much needed dollars that go directly to our school. It is a chance for parents, grandparents, special friends and the whole PPE community to directly INVEST in our teachers, students and programs through monetary gifts.

INVEST dollars directly fund:

  • 4 Interventionist/Enrichment Teachers
    • These positions support the ability of our classroom teachers to meet the needs of every student. This includes providing:
      • Small group support and remediation for students who need more time or struggle with a particular skill or topic.
      • Enrichment activities and resources to accelerate student learning.

As a result of the support provided by these positions, classroom teachers are able to spend more time with each individual student, thus gaining a better understanding of the learning styles and academic goals for each child.  

  • Special Area Teacher Supplies and Assistance – Art, Music, Spanish, PE, Technology and Library
  • Professional Development 


Every dollar we raise will go directly to support PPE students and teachers. Every dollar counts! This year, we need to raise $110,000 to support PPE. 


Please consider INVESTing in your child’s education and future. PPE parents are encouraged to contribute $350 per student. We understand that every family’s situation is unique, so any dollar amount is appreciated. 

We know there are many grandparents and special friends of PPE students who would like to be involved. Please consider asking them to support INVEST this year. They can keep up with the latest news by signing up for the PPE FRIENDS list
