partners-in-educationThe Partners in Education program connects businesses and schools from the same community to form a partnership of mutual support and encouragement. Each year, Dommerich’s PIE coordinator and the PTA PIE liaison(s) work together to foster and further develop these community relationships. The overall goal is to determine three ways that the business can assist Dommerich and, in turn, three ways that our school also can support this local business.

Some of the ways our PIES support Dommerich are by hosting family or school spirit nights (where a percentage of the revenues is donated back to DES); offering coupons and vouchers to DES students, teachers, and staff; donating items for Big Chiefs Night Out; and serving as sponsors for Chiefs on the Run 5K race. Dommerich demonstrates its support of our PIES through recognition on the school marquee, PTA website, PTA Facebook page, and DES website; highlighting PIE related events in the Smoke Signals, sending home fliers, utilizing the PTA email blasts, and spotlighting upcoming events on WDES news; and, most importantly, by encouraging our DES families to be loyal patrons to these generous businesses!

When you are at one of the venues listed below, let them know that we appreciate them by saying thank you to them for all that they do to help Dommerich.

For more questions about PIEs or to recommend a business to become a potential PIE, please contact PTA PIE liaison Cynthia Story at .
