Volunteer Application Online
Please click here
to complete the first requirement of the Pepper Drive Volunteer Application. After completion, you will need to bring your Photo ID to the school office. Background checks take approximately 2 weeks. You will be notified by email when you are approved. Then you can arrange volunteer opportunities with the classroom teacher.
If you have already been approved and plan to volunteer with Peppers Too, please come any Thursday morning (8:45) to room J, after signing in at the office.
This week, your student reviewed the TIGER expectation of Integrity. The students below are some of our "Tigers of the Week"
Grades 5-8 Fundraiser!
Starting next Monday 9/19/22, we will be kicking off a two-week Fundraiser. This is a great opportunity to raise funds for 6th grade camp, and 8th grade trips!
Next week, students will be provided the below letter and "Look Book". All the steps you need to raise money with Boon Supply are stated in the letter, and it's easy!
Check out the below video to see how easy it is!
P.S. We have informed Boon Supply that they have incorrectly typed our school name as "Pepper St. School" on the letter. We are hoping they can correct the error in time for the printed letters, but if not, this will not effect the fundraiser or your student getting credit for the items that are sold their link.
Soapy Joes Fundraiser Update
On September 1st, we partnered with Soapy Joes to kick off their new location and to help Pepper Drive at the same time. We are excited to announce that Soapy Joes was generous enough to increase our proceeds percentage to 50%
and our community raised $540
for our school!
Thank you for supporting Pepper Drive!
