Where do P.I.E. dollars go?

 iGuyTechnology.   In the last 5 years, we've helped to purchase Promethean boards for all classrooms, the
  Library and LGI, 
 25 iPads to be used with the Music and Library curriculum, an Apple TV for use in
  the Library and a new sound system for the Gym.

after school clubs After-School Clubs. Each year, PIE underwrites teacher-sponsored fall and spring clubs for 3rd and 4th graders. Clubs take place before or after school during a 4 or 6 week period. Clubs offered in past years have included knitting, coloring, puzzles, slime making, STEM, Tag Your It, Running, Spanish, American Sign Language and more.

          • Phys Ed initiatives  and new equipment        • Support for the Kindness Collaboration

community  Community Outreach.  In 2015, TVEC and PIE began a RAIDER REACH program.
   This   program identifies food insecure families and assists them with weekly backpacks of supplemental food. Through Raider Reach, we also volunteer at the local foodbank and organize holiday gift drives and personal care product drives.  Last year, our Raider Reach program was paired with our gardening committee and TVEC began growing produce to include in the backpacks or donate to the local food banks. Additionally, PIE awards 2 scholarships to Twin Valley high school graduates each school year.
