The information below is from our Spring 2020 event. We look forward to posting details about the 2021 Benefit early in the fall.
To the PBS community…
We are excited to announce that the Spring Benefit will move online this year. As we have shared, the school relies on the proceeds from the Benefit to raise a major portion of our financial aid budget and to supplement our faculty support and development initiatives. And in the midst of a world in crisis, your support in these areas has never been more vital.
In these uncertain times, more of our students than ever before will require tuition assistance to continue their PBS journeys. All PBS families were chosen to be part of a community that stays together especially in the most difficult of times.
As we develop our distance learning program at warp speed, our faculty are facing challenges never before seen in the classroom (virtual or otherwise). With new teaching models come expanded needs for faculty development in facilitation of online instruction and materials, as well as personal support.
On behalf of the event co-chairs, the Advancement Team, and the Board of Trustees, thank you for considering supporting the Spring Benefit. We all know firsthand how difficult managing life during the shelter-in-place has been, and we are grateful for your time, attention, and generosity. Your participation at any level of this event means the world to us and to our students. So, again, thank you. You’re all stars.
