PCEF is committed to helping our PCSD community of principals, teachers, and staff during this unprecedented time. We recognize that our PCSD community is experiencing fatigue, stress, and anxiety. We want to recognize and express our sincere gratitude for our educators during this challenging time AND we want to help in the most meaningful ways possible!

As a result, we have asked the community to help YOU and we have put together resources, activities, and discounts.  Please check this page regularly for new and limited time specials.
