Thank you all for your interest in Partners In Education - PIE. We are a group that works throughout the year to bring activities, events, and educational experiences to the students of PSES and to acknowledge and appreciate the entire staff of PSES. We sure could use your help doing all of that!
This year is in full swing and we have a lot of fun things coming up very soon!
Thank you to everyone who came to our first meeting. Attached you will find some information about our committees and projects for this year. If you would like to be a part of any of these things, we would love to have you! Please reply to this email if you would like us to include you in our committee meetings and/or communication about those specific things.

Our next PIE meeting will be January 24th. Look for more information to come!
Thank you again!
Support Pagosa Elementary without spending a dime! The City Market Community Rewards program directs a small portion of your purchases toward a qualified local non-profit of your choice. However, the program requires each cardholder to sign up within their own account (instead of having a school representative sign people up). Every new year you must sign up again. It will not renew on it's own.
To sign up, please do the following:
1. Sign into your City Market account at www.citymarketcommunityrewards.com
. If you don't have an account, you'll need to create one to get to the Rewards program. You'll need to enter your contact info, your City Market card# and select a password. You can load great e-coupons to your card this way, too.
2. Go to the Community tab and select "Community Rewards"
3. Click on "Enroll Now"
4. Type "Pagosa Elementary" in the box.
5. Click on the button next to "Pagosa Springs Elementary School", then click on "Enroll" and you're done!
This program costs you nothing and only requires the above enrollment once a year. You don't need to do anything else the rest of the year except use your City Market card when you shop there. You'll need to renew your choice every January since the program expires every Dec 31.

-Higher grades, test scores, and graduation rates
-Better school attendance
-Increased motivation, better self-esteem
-Lower rates of suspension
-Decreased use of drugs and alcohol
-Fewer instances of violent behavior
