November 2022

Thankful for This Community

What a month October has been! Fundraising, festivals, and field days...we covered it all last month! We hope you and your family were able to join us at one of our many fall events . A huge thank you goes out to our many volunteers and committee chairs for all of their efforts! Special thanks to our Business Partner Chairs, Heather Troy & Stephanie McKenna, Red Ribbon Week Chairs, Kathryn Burton, Fall Festival Chairs, Erin Krueger & Nicole Brooker and our Field Day Chair, Meghan Hagewood. Your commitment to our school is unmatched!

As we head into the start of the holidays, we want you to know how thankful we are for our wonderful community that PMES provides for our students and their families. It is truly a special place and it's because of the support we receive from our faculty, staff, administration, and our PMES families! We hope you enjoy time with your loved ones in the next few weeks and hope to see you around PMES!

ONE TRACK MIND Fundraising Initiative Update

We would like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who contributed and volunteered to help with our One Track Mind Fundraiser. From setting up and sharing FundHub pages, coordinating bake sales and lemonade stands, collecting, counting money and assisting with prizes-it takes a village and we couldn’t do it without you!

We raised $31,613 (57% of goal) as of midnight Wednesday, with almost $7,000 in donations coming in within the last 24 hours! Way to go, Hawks!

Congratulations are in order for our top 3 fundraisers for our One Track Mind Fundraiser, Trey T., Amir T., and Banks G.! These Hawks did an AMAZING JOB fundraising to help make that track happen for our school! Check out those totals and those cool prizes!

Our efforts to BUILD THE TRACK are ongoing and your Hawks can still win prizes! Weekly prizes will be awarded for the $20, $40, $60, $80, and $100 donation levels through 8am Friday, November 11th. Prizes will be awarded while supplies last.



Need a car or auto insurance quote? Be sure to call our business partner, The Glover Agency, to see how they can save you money! Brian is a PMES parent and is graciously donating $10 to our school for every quote he completes in the month of November for PMES families. Call him today for your quote and give back to our school in the process!
