For the 2020-21 school year, generous donations from parents and community members have allowed PiE to provide $216,063 for use at Nixon. During this school year, these crucial funds will be used to:
- Pay for almost all of the general classroom aide time, so that all classrooms will get multiple hours of vital classroom aide time weekly. Aides are an important part of the classroom experience at Nixon, allowing children to build deeper connections to caring adults and facilitating small group work in the classroom
- Pay for 100% of the cost of the Spectra Art teachers so that all classrooms benefit from regular art instruction, for multi-dimensional learning, creativity and building confidence
- Pay for a licensed professional counselor to support students and help with social skills, school climate, and whole-classroom instruction
Through a grant to the district, PiE also helps support the traveling music and dance programs for all elementary schools.
The Nixon PiE Representatives for 2020-21 are Julia Hartung, Nike Bharucha, and Byron Hu. Questions about PiE? Email them at nixon AT SIGN papie.org
