Piedmont Parents Clubs
Fifteen organizations provide support to specific schools or programs in our District. They include seven parents’ clubs that provide financial, volunteer and communications support to each elementary and secondary school.
As independent non-profit organizations with separate boards, these organizations coordinate annual fund-raisers and volunteer efforts throughout the school year, fund general education, enrichment and extracurricular programs; administer teacher grant programs, and serve as the interface between the school and families through monthly board meetings, parent education forums, and the distribution of weekly or monthly communications to parents:

The Giving Campaign runs from October through January, with the recommended tax-deductible donation of $1000 per student to The Giving Campaign and $100 or more to the PEF Endowment.
