Vashon Partners in Education (PIE) is a non-profit charity whose goal is to enhance the learning environment in our public schools. We do this by funding activities and materials requested by those closest to the educational process — our teachers. Chautauqua, McMurray, and Vashon High School teachers, staff, and other community members are encouraged to submit grant proposals identifying specific needs or opportunities not addressed by the existing school budget. Grants are evaluated on educational value, innovation, need, and impact. Proposals are evaluated annually in late fall and monies disbursed upon approval.
Thank you to everyone who donated to PIE in 2013. Thanks to our donors, we were able to grant over $47,000 in grants to 40 teachers in the Vashon School District, for use in the 2013-2014 school year. Visit our Grant History page to see the list of 2013 grants.
The 2013 Vashon Sheepdog Classic Smart Dog Sponsorship fundraiser was a huge success, raising $6,100 for PIE! Click here for highlights and to see a complete list of the sponsors. 2014 sponsorships will be available soon! Stay tuned!
