Congratulations to PPIE not so fast!

$4,992.08 is a very small amount compared what was raised by PPIE this year.

Plus didn't PPIE just ask all PTA's in Pleasanton for 5,000 each?

What a bunch of BS..

Innovative Projects:

Ping Pong

Chess Club

Yoga Program

Etc. Etc.

Maybe there was one maybe two projects that were Innovative.

Total BS...

Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo

@Julia, That wasn't very kind. I'm not really sure why you are even weighing in on this. Since you're from Alamo maybe you don't know what kind of activities are going on in the schools in Pleasanton. Since the students took the time and energy to write the applications and the board that reviews them believe there was a benefit in supporting the projects we should just celebrate it. It might not be your first choice but kids are engaged and excited and I think that's worth celebrating.

Julia just sounds like an angry, sad person. I don't see how these grants are any of her business. Did she donate money to PPIE in Pleasanton, while living in Alamo? It seems like Julia may be the proverbial internet troll, just seeking attention. I sincerely hope she gets her personal issues sorted out.

Personally, I was happy to see my PPIE donations used in this way. Congratulations to the winners!
