PIE Membership

Dear PIE Supporters:

You have probably seen our tag line, “Together, We Are Partners.”  What makes that so important is that together we are strong, together we  grow the seeds for the success of our beginning teachers through a new Beginning Teachers’ Cottage and Store.  Together we empower creative and innovative projects in the classroom, Stuff the Bus for our in-need students, and giveaway thousands of books as a result of our Book Drive.  I ask that as you decide to support PIE, your local education foundation, you take a moment and review the attached brochure highlighting just a few of our achievements this past school year.  From a successful PIE Spring Luncheon with Governor Hunt as our guest speaker, to the many grants and programs funded through your generous donations, we can truly say “Together We Are Partners!”

Teachers, as a member of PIE, you will receive one extra point on your total grant score for PIE Grants, International Paper Grants, and the Twin Rivers Artists’ Assn. Grants.   Give your completed membership form to your School’s Ambassador, or you can send it directly to Darlene Brown at Central Services, 3600 Trent Road, New Bern, NC  28562.   Note:  To learn more about our grants and the due dates, or to apply for one of our grants, go to www.CravenPartners.com/grants.  Note:  all grants are available on Google Docs and can be accessed by going to the PIE website, under Programs.

To download a Payroll Deduction Form, follow this link, for a One-Time Payment Form, follow this link and return it to Darlene Brown at 3600 Trent Road. 

If you are not a school employee (parent, community stakeholder, etc.), you can also join and support PIE, and you can designate your membership to the school of your choice to help them win cash for their operating funds (see below for details)!

Note:  To learn more about our grants and the due dates, or to apply for one of our grants, go to www.CravenPartners.com/grants.  Note:  all grants are available on Google Docs and can be accessed by going to the PIE website, under Grants.  Be sure that you are signed into google through Craven County Schools.

We have a new and comprehensive Grants Alert document saved in google drive (be sure you are logged on to your school email account to access). The Grants Alert includes a list of grants offered by PIE and outside resources.  This file is located at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B19oD2-jDW7FYzBZQjlsdWVPZFE and is called “A Grants Alert – August 2017.”

 

PIE Membership – Payroll Deduction:

Craven County Schools, in collaboration with Partners In Education, is offering all employees the ability to contribute to PIE through payroll deduction. The minimum contribution through payroll deduction is $100 for the year. If you are set up on a 10-month pay period, it is $10/month.  If you are on the 12 month pay period, it is $8.33/month.

Dr. Doyle is generously offering a PERSONAL Superintendent’s Challenge: EVERYONE participating in the Payroll Deduction Program will be included in an exclusive drawing at the EOM Principal Leadership Meeting, October 31, for $500 CASH!  The money awarded will be for your personal use!

  • DEADLINE FOR PAYROLL DEDUCTION is October 20, 5:00 pm, WITH DEDUCTIONS TO START WITH THE OCTOBER 31st CHECK.

The school with the highest number of participants in the Payroll Deduction Program will be awarded $1,000 (in the event of a tie, the monies will be split).

This is by far the easiest way to give!  You don’t have to write a check, or go the ATM!  All interested in participating in the payroll deduction, please print out the Payroll Deduction form, complete the form, and sign it. You may turn it in to your PIE Ambassador or send it directly to Partners In Education at Central Services.  Remember if you are currently participating in Payroll Deduction, we will need you to complete a new form for this year.  To participate in the payroll deduction program, there is a minimum commitment of $100 annually ($10/mo if you are set up on 10 month pay or $8.33 if you are set up on 12 month pay).

As school begins, school supply lists are made available to students and parents, but not all students are able to arrive the first day of school with the items required to put them on the road to success; some parents simply can’t afford to purchase the items needed.

To assist those students, Partners In Education (PIE), in partnership with Craven County Schools, established Stuff the Bus.

You can donate to Stuff the Bus throughout the year! Contact Darlene Brown at 514-6321 to arrange a drop-off! She will be sure that your donated supplies get in the hands of those most in-need by working with the principals at our Craven County schools.

A shopping list is available by following this link, and is listed on the individual schools’ websites.
