Duveneck Elementary

For the 2023-24 school year, support from parents and community members has allowed PiE to provide $181,181 for use at Duveneck. These generous gifts will be used on campus to benefit every Duveneck student:

  • To fund nearly all of the general classroom aide time, so that all classrooms get multiple hours of vital classroom aide time weekly. Aides allow for small group instruction, differentiation in instruction, and guided reading for all students
  • To fund a Spectra Art teacher so that all classrooms benefit from regular art instruction, for multi-dimensional learning, creativity, and increased confidence
  • To fund 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 all elementary schools

Duveneck’s PiE Representatives for 2023-24 are Sandra Lebeck and Sheri Shamdasani. Questions about PiE? Please email us at duveneck@papie.org.

“PiE is pivotal in enhancing Duveneck students’ academic journeys by generously contributing funds to vital areas including Spectra Art, mental health services, music, and dance. Perhaps most importantly, PiE funds classroom instructional aides who enable teachers to provide personalized attention through small-group and individual interactions. Please join me in supporting PiE so we can continue to support the educational journey for each student!”
