SGrant image2Over $6,500 in classroom grants were recently awarded to 29 teachers by the Poquoson Education Foundation (PEF). The classroom grant program was initiated by the PEF during the spring of 2010 and has been generously supported by the Poquoson community, families, businesses, organizations and former PHS graduates. Over $17,500 in grant funds have been awarded this year. Awards are made during the fall and spring of each school year. Funds are raised through events such as the "Run for the Bulls” 5K Run/2- Mile Walk sponsored with the Poquoson Kiwanis Club in the fall and PEF golf tournament in the spring. Additionally the on-going Legacy Walk Brick Sales, sponsorships and donations also support the foundation. All funds raised or donated go toward either the classroom grant program, student grants to support national and international academic competitions or student and teacher scholarships.

Information about the PEF and its programs and fundraisers may be obtained from the website at www.pefva.org. Donations, purchase of bricks for the Legacy Walk located at PHS and tickets for fundraisers may be made thru PayPal on the website or sent to PEF, PO Box 2425, Poquoson, VA 23662.
