Breakfast will be served Saturday, December 9, from 7:00 – 10:00 am.

Ervin Patrick, PIE Board President explains, “This event is open to the public and is an excellent opportunity for our community to show their support for Craven County Schools.  Morgan’s is generously donating all proceeds from the breakfast to PIE, who will use the funds to support our local schools through PIE grant programs.  Serving our pancakes will be Morgan’s staff along with PIE volunteers consisting of teachers, school staff members, and community supporters.”

 

Brandy Popp, Chair of the PIE Fund Raising Committee explains, “It is so very giving of Adam and Candice Simmons and their employees to provide the staffing, food, and venue for this event. We all know Morgan’s dishes up excellent food and our volunteers are always up for serving some ‘PIE’!  We are absolutely thrilled Morgan’s is hosting Pancakes for PIE and we encourage everyone to bring the whole family and spend the day in beautiful downtown New Bern!  We have sent a special invitation to Santa and we are hoping he will be on hand to share holiday cheer!”

Craven County Partners In Education Announces Book Drive

 

Partners In Education and Craven County Schools, Craven Smart Start and Newspapers In Education, are providing an opportunity for our community to donate books for Craven County Schools’ media centers and classrooms. The Book Drive will take place November 13-17, 2017.

The drop-off locations are:  the Sun Journal at 3200 Wellons Blvd., all Craven County Schools, Craven County Schools Central Services/Partners In Education at 3600 Trent Road, Craven Smart Start at 2111-F Neuse Blvd., AlphaGraphics at 3731 Trent Road, and Century 21 Zaytoun-Raines at 312 S. Front St.

Brandy Popp, PIE Fund Raising Committee Chair, says, “The most successful way to improve the reading achievement of our children is to increase their access to print. Communities ranking high in achievement tests have several factors in common: an abundance of books in public libraries, easy access to books in the community at large, and a large number of classroom books per student.  Commit yourself to increasing student reading achievement and literacy in Craven County by giving to our Book Drive.”

Ms. Popp explains, “Last year, through the generosity of our community, Partners In Education was able to donate thousands of books to our classrooms and media centers and to Craven Smart Start.  Based on this success, Partners In Education is recruiting the help of all our community partners so that we are able reach more students this year.  Please think of books for all of our school children, PreK-13.”

The donated books will be made available to Craven Smart Start and Craven County Schools teachers for their classrooms at a Book Giveaway.

As school begins, school supply lists are made avail

able 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.
