PALPeople Aiding Learning
What is PAL?
PAL stands for People Aiding Learning, we are the parent/teacher organization for Neidig Elementary School. Our goal is to provide the foundation for a close personal relationship between the home and school community. Through events and fundraisers PAL is able to financially support access for all students to class trips, assemblies, and equipment that enhances their education. Be on the lookout for our monthly family fun nights!Family fun nights, buddy classes, the 5th grade yearbook, and the school store, are just some of the great things PAL is doing to build character in our children and unity in our families. Anyone who has a student at Neidig is part of PAL- parents, guardians, grandparents, extended family, teachers, etc!
When does PAL meet?
All families are invited to attend our monthly general information meetings where important school and event information is discussed.The first meeting of the school year will be on Wednesday, September 6 from 7:00 – 8:00 pm in the Neidig Library. Children are welcome! If you would like to bring your child to the meeting, please pack a few small items such as a book, homework, or electronic device with headphones.
What is the Race for Education/Cookie Dough Fundraiser?
Our main fundraising event at Neidig is the Race for Education. The Race for Education is a walk through various obstacles and activities that the children and teachers participate in one afternoon in October. Students demonstrate teamwork, school spirit and positive character all while raising funds to support our school! We solicit donations each year by asking families for the addresses of people who they believe will contribute money to our school. We are again offering a cookie dough sale option as well. Both of these fundraisers raise the money needed for the PAL 2017-2018 budget.A packet will be sent home with your child explaining how to participate in this very important event. All proceeds from the Race for Education and Cookie Dough fund class trips, activities and much needed educational items for our school!
