PBE families,

We hope you had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the cooler temperatures, it almost felt like fall!  We have another full week ahead and some exciting things happening.

 Our first big fundraiser of the 2020-21 school year is here!   The contribution drive is in full swing and this year's focus is on ensuring funding for continued social-emotional support as well as San Diego Youth Science!  Thank you again to Jessica Cohen and Maria Hawley for taking the lead on this important fundraiser.

We have our first virtual school tour on the 15th at 5 pm.  If you know families interested in PBE please pass along our website to view the full schedule of the tours.

Have a great week PBE, 

Elizabeth & Rachel
