Partners In Education
Launched in the spring of 2008, Springdale Partners In Education (PIE) pairs area businesses with local schools to provide resources not otherwise available. These resources include products, funding, talent and time.

For example, in working with a school, a partner may sponsor extracurricular activities, provide guest speakers related to curriculum areas, initiate teacher recognition programs, provide corporate release time for employees to tutor or mentor students during the school day, sponsor educational field trips, read to students and listen to students read, help beautify the campus or choose from a wide variety of other ideas.

The school also may provide services for the business, including choral and/or band entertainment for company events, writing a column for the business newsletter, sharing school and student successes and sending birthday cards to company employees among various other possibilities.

PIE is designed to foster partnerships between businesses and schools through one outlet rather than numerous contacts between schools and local companies.

You may contact Partners in Education via e-mail at PIE@sdale.org.
