PEF Breakfast Welcomes Back PUSD Teachers & Staff

The Pasadena Educational Foundation, with support from community sponsors, welcomed back 2,000 Pasadena Unified School District teachers, staff, and administrators this week with a breakfast held at Pasadena High School. The breakfast kicked off the PUSD All Staff Welcome Back event featuring awards, special presentations, and a day of professional development focused on the arts, math, and science for all PUSD teachers.

The start of a new year is always a magical time full of promise, excitement, camaraderie, and for our students a little bit of nervousness. PEF looks forward to welcoming back our almost 17,000 students back to school on Monday, August 13.

Thank you to all our sponsors for making this celebratory event possible: Corner Bakery Cafe, California Credit Union, Voya Financial, VALIC, Pasadena Service Federal Credit Union, Colonial Life, SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union, Blue Shield California, Foresters Financial, NTA Life, United Healthcare, and Superb Dental Care.
