Federation advocacy policies focus on wellness, curriculum needs, health, school bus safety and more. Need help? Contact us:  peihsf@edu.pe.ca / 620-3186 / 1-800-916-0664 / peihsf@edu.pe.ca

🏫 School Staff Appreciation Week 2022
School staff will be celebrated across Canada February 14-20.  Your Home and School Staff Appreciation committee can begin now to make safe plans for showing appreciation to school staff for the contributions they make to our children and their education. Keep plans simple!  A little appreciation goes a long way!  

🍎 Gift a Meal. Help a Student. Pass the plate!

Wondering how you can celebrate gift-giving celebrations?  By paying more than your own total meal value when you order from Bon Appétit, PEI’s School Food Program, you can help pay for another student’s lunch! All you have to do is order your lunches at and add a donation to the total cost of your child’s lunches. Sign up here: https://www.peischoolfood.org/
