2022 PTEF Golf Outing

June 8, 2022
The 2022 annual golf outing for Perry Township Education Foundation was a success. Although the
weather was challenging it didn’t hinder anyone from taking the opportunity to give support to this
amazing cause and have some fun doing it. Our golfers, sponsors, volunteers, board members and the
new Executive Director, Mary Blake were up for a day of golf, fun, games, some friendly competition and
a little bit of rain at the lovely Legends Golf Course.
The Perry Township Education Foundation (PTEF) is a non-profit organization founded in 1994 to serve
schools, students, teachers, administrators, and staff of Perry Township Schools. Since its inception,
PTEF has funded over $1.2 million in grants and with the new strategic plan it will focus on growing the
foundation to expand the support to the Perry Township Community.
The foundation is always looking for support through sponsorships and grants to help meet the need for
increased funding right here in the community. The proceeds from events, like the golf outing, will
develop and expand programs that pave the way for our youth’s success. Sponsorships will play an
important role in transforming lives. Please visit PTEFs website at, follow up on Facebook.

Homecroft Kindergarten Academy teacher, Susan D. Thomas, is an October 2022 Helping Hand Grant recipient.  Her project was to create a pumpkin patch! “Many of our students do not have that opportunity. On October 28th we would like to set up pumpkin patches for our students as we celebrate Pumpkin Day…” “Students will go to their classroom pumpkin patch to “pick” a pumpkin. During the day students will learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin, write about their pumpkin, learn pumpkin vocabulary, measure and weigh their pumpkin, and much more! At the end of the day, students will take their pumpkin home!”
