Save the Music 2015-2016
Fundraising for 2015-2016 has begun! We need to raise over $98,000 to fully fund the Band/Strings for each school year. Won't you consider making a donation to help save the music?
The PUSD Music Festival 2014 was a success!
Thanks to those that supported the District Music Festival! The event was very successful. The performances were amazing. Successful as it was we know it will not be enough to fully fund the band/strings program. Won't you consider making a donation to help take us the rest of the way! We need over $98,000 to fully fund this very important program. A special thanks to the volunteers for making this event successful!
Save the Music 2014-2015
PSEE is pleased to announce that we were able to fund the Elementary Band/Strings for the 2014-2015 School year for PUSD. Funds came through donations and event revenue, as well as some funds from the foundation. Thanks to all our supporters for your help. We really appreciate it! Cumulatively, PSEE has given over Seven Hundred Thousand dollars to PUSD to benefit music education and other student enrichment since its inception in 1999!
As agreed at the December 2012 Board meeting, PSEE has transfered the accumulated foundation funds to the District. These funds are managed by the district in a special restricted account for use only to fund Arts, Sciences and other Enrichment consistent with PSEE goals. PSEE will continue to fundraise for the district and will continue to work with the district to help recommend the use of these funds. Management of the funds has simply been shifted to help off-load some of the administrative burdens for the PSEE Volunteers. Susana Lopez-Krulevich has taken over as President of PSEE, Mark Aubel as Vice President, Kirsten Dwyer as board member and Sally Baker at Secretary. Denise Watkins retired from the foundation after 13 years, being one of the original co-founders. In April 2012, PSEE transferred $722,913.65 to the district for this special fund. This brings the total that PSEE has provided to PUSD to over $1.3 Million dollars!
