Simply Smart KIds parenting program.
We hope to do this 4 part parenting program again next year.

We provided meals, books, bags, t-shirts
for the parents and children for the program.

The Diary of Anne Frank - February 29, 2016
We took the 6th graders by bus, as we do each year, to the Berman Theatre in West Bloomfield to see the Jewish Ensemble Theatre's production of the play. Wendy Wagenheim spoke to the students a week before the play to set the tone. Marcy Feldman spoke to the students after to answer questions about the Holocaust, the Civil Rights Movement and the link between Jewish people and African American people.
"Summer in the City" created a mural in our Stoepel hallway
The little kids love the fun art!

WE FUNDED "SUMMER IN THE CITY" IN 2016!
We donated money again for SITC to do programming for our students the last Friday of each week of summer school. They will also host a 2-week camp in August. Last year the children had trips to Belle Isle, Wayne State, the Riverfront and more. The SITC volunteers directed art, sports and helped our kids have lots of summer fun. Because of summer school and Camp Pasteur
our students are assured of a free breakfast and lunch from Monday - Friday. There is no guarantee that our children would have these meals if not for these programs.
- Come any day for a half hour to read to a young special ed class!

WHO WE ARE
The Pasteur Elementary School Alumni Foundation is anon-profit, 501(c)(3), tax exempt organization.
We started the alumni foundation in 1996 and are dedicated to helping the current students of Pasteur Elementary School. It is located on Stoepel and Pembroke in northwest Detroit. We are the first and largest alumni association of an elementary school in Detroit.
Our database has over 1,500 alumni who attended the school since 1939. We have members who live all over the U.S., Canada and Israel. We are diverse in many ways, but all have a special feeling for our old school, friends, teachers, and neighborhood.
We publish an annual newsletter and member directory with contact information. The directory is sent only to members. Currently we have over 250 members. Many old friends have been re-connected through our Foundation. Some of our many activities include, weekly reading to classes, tutoring, giving books to all the students, dictionaries to all graduates and scholarships for college.
Please check out the whole website to view our many accomplishments, programs, letters from students, news, interesting stories, photos, facts and our newsletters. We will add more soon! We spent $18,000 last year on programs, field trips, camp, books, food, etc. for the children. To be ecologically sound we send a hard copy of the newsletter only to alumni who are not on the internet. This saves money, paper and time.
Please help by registering on our website and check it each month for news. We have also started to send current news more often. If you would like the E-NEWS please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not currently a member we hope that you join to help us continue our work at the school. We do make a difference in the lives of these children and their families.

PACKING FOOD AND BOOKS - December 18, 2014
Looking for volunteer packers to fill boxes for 50 families in need!
MAY 2012 - iPads and APPS FOR AUTISM
We purchased two iPads for the special ed teachers to use with their non-verbal autistic students. The progress the students have made in reading, math, matching games is incredible. They are so focused when using the iPads for learning! Thank you all who support what we do with your membership and contributions!
JUNE 2013 - PROMOTION
This was the first time in many years that promotion was in our auditorium. We gave large, hard cover dictionaries to all 36 sixth graders who were promoted. The alumni were thanked by student Kaitlynn Wilson with a hand-written, framed letter thanking us for all our contributions including reading, tutoring, Earth Day, painting, "The Diary of Anne Frank" performance by the Jewish Ensemble Theatre (field trip to the Berman Theatre), giving them each a copy of the diary, food for the needy at Christmas, and the new auditorium curtains!
JUNE 2013 - InsideOut Literary Arts Project
We suggested 4 years ago that this would be a great program to bring into the school. Sharon Lawson, our principal, finally got it in the budget. A professional writer worked each week with 3rd and 4th grade to produce their own poetry. The published books for Pasteur were distributed to all the authors at a ceremony in the auditorium. The excitement of the children to see themselves as authors in print was beautiful.
JUNE 13, 2012 - Journal Journey Ended
Wendy Wagenheim presented all the 4th graders with their journals which had traveled all over the country receiving entries from alumni. The children were thrilled to read some of the essays in front of their classmates. Postcards from everywhere arrived at the school each week from Pasteur alumni. Fran Gross co-chaired this program.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING SEND 28 STUDENTS
TO THE NASA SPACE LAUNCH - APRIL 2011
Everyone still talks about the NASA trip. Our students,teachers and chaperones had a great seat in the bleachers at the launch site,when they heard the launch was postponed indefinitely. Our students were still able to get a VIP tour of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida! Most of the children and some parents had never been outside of Michigan. The parents were extremely grateful that the children had this amazing experience. Upon returning they spoke about everything they had seen. Interestingly, they said how close they all feel having experienced thistrip together even though they were grades 3-5.
Many thanks to all who helped fund this project!
The Detroit Jewish Coalition for Literacy hosted a Literacy Program with Free Press writer Rochelle Riley last March. Marcy Feldman spoke about how to start an organized advocacy group in a school, sighting PESAF's accomplishments and how we do it.
