2023/2024 Parent Council Fundraising

Our 2023/2024 Parent Council is working very hard at fundraising to support PES students.  One of their big projects they are focusing on is helping us fundraise $125,000 to build our new playground.  

Some of the fundraising opportunities that can be expected this year include a bake sale at Parent Teacher Interview nights as well as selling The Mixing Spoon jars.  More fundraising events will be added throughout the year and will be shared out to parents.

If you would like to contribute to the fundraising efforts or have questions, please contact our Parent Council @

Fundraising Success in March 2023

A huge thank you to all of the parents who supported our PES Parent Council March fundraising.  

Bake Sale

The amount of items brought in for the bake sale was far surpassing what we could have expected!  Our school is surely blessed with having some amazing bakers at home and being willing to share this with us at the school.  The bake sale raised just under $1000!!  Thank you to the parents who volunteered to come in and work the sale.

The Mixing Spoon

The Mixing Spoon fundraiser was another hit with our school community.  Over $1700 was raised through this event.  For those who purchased items from the Mixing Spoon, they can attest to how delicious the food is.  Many people who purchased from this fundraiser wished they had purchased more.  Thank you to all of those parents who supported us in making this fundraiser a success.


2023 PES Parent Council Fundraising

Penhold Elementary School's Parent Council organizes fundraisers in an effort to help support PES in many ways.  It could be through purchasing books, offsetting field trip costs, supporting the purchase of technology for students or, lately, in helping to fund raise for the building of a new playground.

March 9th Bake Sale

PES Parent Council will be holding a bake sale fundraiser.  All funds raised will go towards the new school playground.  We are looking for any families who are interested in helping with this by bringing in baked goods by March 8th @ 4PM.  Students will be able to purchase individual baked goods during their lunch hour on March 9th for $1 each. Also Parent Council will be selling trays of baked goods during parent teacher interviews that evening as well.

We require all items to be nut free since there are allergies in the school.  If you are sending items in a Tupperware container please clearly label the container with your first and last name so we can ensure you get your container back.  Feel free to send in a disposable package as well (ie: Ziploc bag).  If you wish to bring something for the sale, please fill out the Google Form that was shared below.  Any questions, please email us at

Penhold Elementary School Parent Council

PES Parent and Society Councils meet on the second Tuesday of each month.  These meetings include hearing from the school administration, a member of Penhold town council, and Penhold FCSS.  Parents have the opportunity to hear and discuss with the school what is coming up as well as the school to have the opportunity to listen to parent input.  

Our PES Society Council raises money for many initiatives that support the school including supporting funding field trips, special guest speakers, special activities and resources to be used in the classroom.  

Parents are welcome to attend these meetings.  There is the possibility of child care being offered if needed.  Parents are asked to reach out to the parent council through email if child care is needed ahead of time.
