A Message from the Prisk Foundation

Dear Prisk Families,

Welcome to Prisk! We are so fortunate to be a part of the dynamic Prisk learning community that is made of students, parents, teachers, support staff and administrators. A strong community working together for our school is a Prisk tradition.

In 2007 when Long Beach Unified School District began to experience drastic budget cuts, parents created the Prisk Foundation to maintain the teachers and teaching assistants in the Science Lab and Computer Lab. This financial support of our school has continued ever since. To this day, the Prisk Foundation remains dedicated to supporting our students by raising the funds necessary to meet the growing financial needs to staff our school and to give our young scholars the superior education they deserve.

Each school year, beginning in 2017, the Foundation pays the salaries for the STEAM aides that assist with the science, engineering, and art labs at our school.

The Prisk Foundation operates under the 501(c)(3) non-profit status of the Long Beach Education Foundation (LBEF) which raises money to support education. LBEF allows schools to have their own accounts which are maintained by the LBEF. Every dollar raised by the Prisk Foundation is deposited into an LBEF account earmarked specifically for Prisk and is used exclusively at Prisk.

The money raised with your help for the Prisk Foundation is used exclusively for staff salaries at Prisk.

The Prisk Foundation team is dedicated to raising the funds necessary to support our school and the vision of the leadership team in order to offer our children the best education possible. We respectfully request your help and support with the following events:

 

Holiday Market & Gift Shop

Pancake Breakfast, Raffle & Auction

Hand-me-down Uniform Project

Prisk Monthly Family Dinners in our Community

 

Corporate or family donations to LBEF are Always welcome!

 

Any parent or community member interested in getting involved is invited to attend our Foundation team meetings held throughout the year, dates with be forthcoming.

By working together we can strengthen our school and community. Thank you in advance for your support.

 

Sincerely,

The Prisk Foundation Team
