Chili Cook-Off

Save the date! Our Chili Cook Off is back by popular demand and will be held Friday, January 24th. 6 - 7:30pm. We are looking forward to some entries in this competition to rival Mr. Weed! I am sure he's rooting to win again this year, so lets give him some strong and tasty competition! Please email Mr. Weed at if you would like to enter. If you are planning on attending but not entering a chili, please bring a side dish to share. It is always an enjoyable evening with our PFE friends.

Also, just a reminder to let you know that PFE collects
box tops and we would LOVE it if you would collect them and send them in to your child’s classroom. You can clip tops or use the new BTFE app to scan receipts. Look for it in your app store.


PFE also participates in Amazon Smile! If you shop on Amazon Smile, 0.5% of your purchases will be donated to the PFE PTO to benefit our children. To sign up, go to and sign in with your account.
