When we all work together we can do incredible things! Join the effort to help our schools have resources for funding some of the great educational enrichment programs that the schools couldn't offer without our help!
The commitment is only one meeting per month and small projects in-between. Many projects can be completed in your home.
Join us anytime at our monthly board meetings. Our meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of each month, in the Media Center at the Gordon W. Mitchell Middle School (unless otherwise noted) and begin @ 7:00 pm. If you want to be informed of upcoming meetings or volunteer opportunities, please call or send an email.
Please email us at EBPIE@comcast.net or call Brenda Mitchell 508-468-0141
EB PIE was formed in 1996 by a group of parents interested in ensuring continued availability of educational enrichment activities for their children.
We are a group of volunteers raising funds to help supplement the cost of educational programs and materials that enhance the classroom experience of all students.
EB PIE provides funding for enrichment programs that are both stimulating and educational, to supplement the education of all East Bridgewater students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12.
