Addison Elementary

For the 2024-25 school year, generous support from parents and community donors has allowed PiE to provide Addison with $163,222 which will be spent on:

  • General Classroom Aides, so that all classrooms will get vital classroom aide time daily. Aides are a tangible, integral part of every child’s classroom experience at Addison
  • Spectra Art Instructors, so that all classrooms benefit from regular art instruction, to build student confidence and artistic expression
  • School-based counseling that helps all staff maximize social and emotional learning for all children
  • Through a grant to the district, PiE also helps fund the music and dance programs for the elementary schools

“The students at Addison have had unique educational experiences that support their individualized learning thanks to the generous contributions of PiE. PiE funds our aides who are invaluable as they work alongside the teachers to make sure each student makes progress in the academic content areas. Furthermore, the aides and counselors support the social/emotional development both inside the classroom and out on the playground. The Spectra Art program funded by PiE provides an enrichment opportunity for all students. The success of PAUSD students does not happen by chance; through the generous support of parents and PiE, we are creating the conditions for a strong academic and social/emotional program.”
