Because of YOU!

A couple weeks ago, my 8 year old granddaughter (and PBL student) and I were watching a movie together. She asked me if I could pause the movie. The movie was being “streamed” from an online source and I didn’t have a clue how to pause the action. She took the remote from me and pressed a button – the movie paused. “How did you know what to do?” She shrugged and said, “I don’t know, I just know.”

Our students “just know” because of the opportunities you are giving them with your financial support. They have access to so much more – enrichment programs, the latest technology and books – than they would without your support.

BECAUSE OF YOU, our PBL students have opportunities “to know” and to be the best they can be!

Robin Niewold, Chairman – Paxton Buckley Loda Education Foundation

We depend on your support to fulfill our mission and to continue offering enrichment programs in all of our PBL classrooms.


“You encourage readers and future entrepreneurs and honor alumni who have achieved much. You give each student a digital learning device and you give our teachers up-to-date teaching tools in the form of digital “blackboards” and classroom projectors. You make funding available to teachers who want to try new and engaging programs and you fund equipment for students who want to build robots. You ARE impacting lives!”
