Mrs. Fogarty

On Tuesday, 11/19/19 Mrs. Fogarty became aware during school that her home was on fire and she immediately worried for her home and her pets.  Sadly, she lost most of the contents of her home and her beloved pets.  This kind and generous teacher and UIL coach is now in need of re-establishing a home with her husband and daughter.  Please give in any way that feels important to you.  Various Pershing clubs and teachers have shared ways to give.  The Pershing Facebook page made everyone aware of the option of bringing in Gift Cards or cash to Mrs. Garner to collect for Mrs. Fogarty.  The PTO red box by the attendance office can be used to collect gift cards for Mrs. Fogarty as well.  There will be an Amazon share site in order to select items from the Fogarty’s list (similar to a gift registry).  The GoFundMe is an excellent way to share her need with others and to get funds directly into her account for her family to use however they most need.

If you are able, please consider giving!

Girls Empowerment Network

Parent Workshop

The Girls Empowerment Network partnered with Pershing last year to work with a group of girls.  They would like to host a Parent Workshop and they have a variety of great topics to choose from.

The topics that our AP & Counselor narrowed it down to are:
Healthy Relationships
Self Compassion
Social Media
Stress Management
Please go to this survey link to select the TOPIC and the time of day that best suits your schedule.  We will hope to host the workshop on a day that we are having a PTO meeting so that you can take care of both at once.

This event will be free to all parents and there should be plenty of room for your students to attend as well.
