Ms. Zawayta has a new Donor's Choose project. Her project - Peirce Panther Media: Paw-Worthy Student News - will fund the creation of a news station where students deliver important events, community initiatives, athletic games, and world news. All station activities will be exclusively student led.
Money donated in the next seven days will be doubled using the code LIFTOFF.
What a great day Peirce Day at Hopleaf was!
It's was so good to see our Peirce Village and Andersonville/Edgewater community come together to raise money for our wonderful school. We learned from Michael and Louise at Hopleaf that we raised just over $21,000! These funds will be instrumental for our arts and afterschool programs next year.
Thank you to Michael, Louise and the Hopleaf staff for their generosity and passion for our school.
