Peyton Elementary: Get Involved

The Peyton Elementary Building Accountability Committee (BAC) consists of parents, staff, and community members that work together to meet the charges of the School Board handed down through the District Accountability Committee as well as tackling other issues to make improvements at the Elementary level. Meetings are held most first Wednesdays of the month.

Parent Volunteers Welcome!

We have different needs that arise from time to time so we wanted to get a little information from you to utilize your interests and special skills.  Please fill out the Volunteer Form and return it to the office.

PEP, the Peyton Elementary Parents Group, is a committee of parents, teachers, and staff dedicated to providing support to Peyton Elementary School.  Every year, we hold a major fundraiser then grant the money back to the school.  Past grants include:

In addition to providing funding, we

  • welcome back students and families to school with treats at the yearly Open House

Help PEP help our school!  Look on products you buy for Box Tops for Education.  Some products have Digital Box Tops while others are the traditional clip Box Tops.  Either method works for us; each box top is worth 10¢.

Santa’s Secret Shop is a fun, PEP-sponsored event that gives children the opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts for their parents, siblings, grandparents, friends, teachers, and even the family pet! All gifts are only $1.25 each and they are returned to your child wrapped, labeled, and ready to put under the tree!  Students have a chance to “window-shop” to see what is available for purchase and to make a list.  Look for more detailed information to be sent home in the Thursday folders right before Thanksgiving break.20161212_124652

We truly appreciate all the adult volunteers who help with our Santa Shop every year! There are so many different ways you can help, from wrapping to assisting our youngest students with their
shopping! We also appreciate donations of wrapping supplies such as TISSUE PAPER, CHRISTMAS GIFT BAGS (new/used, any size), GIFT TAGS, and PLASTIC GROCERY BAGS. If you have any of these items to donate, please drop them off at the school office.  If you are interested in volunteering, fill out the form sent home in the Thursday folders right before Thanksgiving break.
