We're Looking For Pickerington Alumni

Pickerington Schools receives frequent calls about where alumni are and how they can be contacted. The district has no means to keep these records, so the Pickerington Education Foundation has taken on this challenge to connect alumni with each other for gatherings, for reunions, or just to be able to reestablish old friendships.

Help the PEF begin the process of finding Pickerington alumni by completing this form. This data will be used by PEF and the Alumni Committee to inform alumni of events for Pickerington graduates. Information provided here will not be released to any other group or entity.

Register today and get your classmates to register too.

Donations support long-term capital, building, facility, technology, and equipment needs for teachers and students.

Through your donations, the foundation provides grants and matching programs for classroom opportunities and solutions; new ideas and programs develop life skills and promote service learning across the district.


Tools for Teachers

Grants allow educators to seed new ideas and approaches to teaching and learning that support creativity. These ideas demonstrate widespread impact across students in the classroom and throughout the district.

Through the Foundation, thousands of grants have been awarded to elementary, middle school, junior high and high school staff for innovative programs in all core curriculum areas, music, physical education, special education and counseling.

The period for grant applications is not currently open.
