Ohlone Elementary

For the 2022-23 school year, generous donations from parents and community members will allow PiE to provide $214,239 for use at Ohlone. These generous funds will:

  • Pay for 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 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 one 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 sessions of Junior Museum and Zoo’s hands-on experiential science instruction linked to the PAUSD curriculum
  • Fund a counselor who works with students one-on-one or in small groups to help facilitate and optimize classroom and social-emotional skills in students
  • Through a grant to the district, PiE also helps fund the music and dance programs for all elementary schools

Ohlone PiE Representatives for 2022-23 are Angie Sanaee, Rowena Chiu, Maria Brown, Kyla Farrell, Mandi Lin, and Jenny Hernandez. Questions? Please email them at ohlone@papie.org.

“Every student at Ohlone benefits from PiE donations. Thank you, Donors! PiE funds provide enriching experiences for all students, in many areas of study. The addition of music and art instructors, mental health counselors, and science programs create many amazing opportunities for Ohlone students. I am especially grateful for the small-group, individualized instruction made possible by the classroom aides funded by PiE.”
