News and Announcements

It is time for the end of the year Gift of Thanks at Pacific!

We know that you would like to show your appreciation to each and every member of Pacific’s Staff, but we also know that it may be difficult to give a sizable gift to everyone. So, we are providing you with a chance to contribute a little something to anyone and everyone for whom you would like to show your appreciation. The list doesn’t include teachers, as their gifts are handled by the Room Parents.

Giving to Pacific staff members is just a few clicks away. Click READ MORE for the link. You will click on the different categories (Cafeteria, Classroom Support, Custodial, Extended Day Program, Lunch/Playground, Music, Office, Support Staff or All Staff Donation) to find each staff member.

Please enter any amount in $5 increments below the appropriate name(s) on the site. The total collected for each person will be pooled together and given in the form a gift card(s) along with a thank you card with all the names of those who contributed. If you wish to remain anonymous, please write ANONYMOUS in the spot where it says to enter your name and it will be designated as such. You can also choose ALL STAFF DONATION and your contribution will be combined with other ALL STAFF funds and divided between everyone on the list.

Please complete your online donations NO LATER than 3pm on FRIDAY, JUNE 4th. 100% of your contribution will be passed on, this is not a fundraiser. Thank you!

If you have any questions please contact: Mara McPhee at Summer Sheets at
