For the 2020-21 school year, generous donations from parents and community members will allow PiE to provide $266,358 for use at Ohlone. These generous funds will:

  • Pay for 90% of the general classroom aide time, so that all classrooms receive multiple hours of vital classroom aide time weekly. Aides are an important part of the classroom experience at Ohlone, allowing teachers to work in small groups or individually with students in every classroom
  • Fund part of a math specialist to mentor and coach classroom teachers, benefitting all children at Ohlone
  • Fund 100% of Spectra Art at Ohlone, so that all students can benefit from regular art instruction to enhance curriculum and build creativity every week
  • Pay for part of the farm science instructional assistants, so that all students can learn from the beauty and wonder of the live and growing things on the Ohlone farm
  • Pay for two sessions per classroom of Junior Museum and Zoo hands-on experiential science instruction linked to the PAUSD curriculum
  • Fund a Acknowledge Alliance counselor who works with students one-on-one or in small groups to help facilitate and optimize classroom and social-emotional skills in students
  • Support the Project Resilience program which builds developmental assets and resilience for students in the upper grades

Through a grant to the district, PiE also helps support the traveling music and dance programs for all elementary schools.
