What is PME?

The Perkins Magnet Endowment Fund (PME) is an endowment working to emphasize the arts throughout our school’s entire curriculum. Created in 1995, it is a non-profit organization that strives to ensure that Perkins’ Magnet program meets and exceeds original magnet goals. PME accepts tax-deductible donations.

With oversight from Perkins Principal Tony Pleshe, Magnet Coordinator Laura Kranzel, and a volunteer board made up of Perkins parents, the PME hosts fundraisers and arts enrichment events for students and families. Funds raised from these events help pay for arts-related field trips, art camp scholarships, hosting professional performances for students, playwriting workshops, and of course, arts supplies for our many arts classes.
