Palo Alto Partners in Education (PiE) is the non-profit educational foundation devoted to raising money for all Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD) schools. PiE donations provide Briones with classroom aides, art and music instruction for all grades.  Every donation makes a difference in the educational experience for each Briones student.

For the 2022-23 school year, generous donations from parents and community members have allowed PiE to provide Juana Briones with $126,903 for use on our campus. At Briones, donations to PiE help every student by:

  • Helping to fund the general classroom aides who work with kids in every regular education classroom (PiE pays for more than half of this time)
  • Funding our Spectra Art Instructor who teaches every child creativity and confidence (PiE pays for 100% of her time)
  • Funding school-based counseling that helps all staff maximize social and emotional learning for all children
  • Through a grant to the district, PiE also helps fund the music and dance programs for all elementary schools

Your 2022-23 Briones PiE Representatives are Melissa Lu,  Chris Mah, Rinat Mukhoryapov, and Casie Walker. Questions? Please email them at briones@papie.org.
