What are you thankful for this year? - PEBC

What are you thankful for this year?

As we enter into the holiday season, there are many things to be thankful for. Here at PEBC, we’re thankful for all of the educators with whom we work across the country and for other partners, individuals and organizations working on behalf of children and educators—not to mention the hard work of our staff. We are also thankful for the continuous support we receive from the community, including businesses and donors, as we work to elevate the teaching profession!

This is the time of year that many seek out opportunities to donate to nonprofits or other charitable causes. As you consider donating during the holiday season, choose a cause or concern that is near to your heart within your community. The impact from your donation will help others and change the lives of those living around you—this is the power of supporting nonprofit organizations through donations!

One upcoming opportunity is to make a donation for Colorado Gives Day, on December 10—an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropic giving to nonprofit organizations in Colorado, such as PEBC.

Every dollar donated to PEBC helps prepare outstanding new teachers and enables practicing educators to become exceptional. If PEBC’s mission and work is near and dear to your heart, please consider scheduling your donation as early as today or donating to PEBC on Colorado Gives Day, December 10. It’s simple to make a contribution—just CLICK HERE to pre-schedule your donation for Colorado Gives Day. All gifts made on Colorado Gives Day will be boosted by the FirstBank and Community First Foundation Incentive Fund. Thank you for being an important contributor to the success of PEBC, and happy holiday season!

Student Writing

Writing Institute: Teaching Argument Writing (2025)

Teaching argument is more than offering students a persuasive prompt and a formula; it’s about teaching students to analyze the data in order to form a claim, to back that claim with valid and reliable evidence, and to create an essay that a reader wouldn’t want to put down.
