Our Corporate Campaign is an important part of our overall PTO fundraising program.  By partnering with businesses in our community, we raise funds for teacher, student, classroom and technology support, curriculum enrichment, staff appreciation, and facility enhancements.

We invite you to become our corporate partner and enrich the educational experience of each child by making a tax-deductible donation to the Pershing PTO.  Click here to learn more about our Pershing Corporate Partners Campaign. Please contact Linda Barcot at LinBarcot@gmail.com for opportunities to sponsor Pershing and receive school-wide newsletter and website recognition, school banners, neighborhood newsletter mentions, marquee signage and much more!

Panda Hurricane Relief Fund

We are glad to be back at school! However, we know many people are struggling after Hurricane Harvey. The PTO is collecting funds that will be specifically earmarked to buy school supplies and uniforms for students that were flooded. Our school social worker, Ms. Belfonte, will be in charge of identifying student needs.

Thank you for your support!
