We currently are working on a particularly ambitious technology project that we hope to tell everyone about in the coming months.”

Beech added that as part of the website re-launch, the PEF is also looking for additional volunteers to help with the organization’s activities and administration. “Any member of the PRSD community is welcome to join us, even if it’s only to attend our monthly meetings to learn about what’s happening and to share ideas,” she said. People interested in volunteering can visit the PEF website or email

Beech also noted that the new website includes a blog, which will provide interesting opinions and perspectives on the PRSD and public education. The PEF is actively seeking students, parents and others to contribute to the blog, and interested potential bloggers can also email the PEF at the address above.

About the PEF

The Pentucket Education Foundation (PEF) was founded in 2010 in response to the intense budgetary pressures facing the six schools in the Pentucket Regional School District (PRSD). Since that time, the PEF’s grants have enabled teachers to enrich the learning experience for students district-wide with new technologies, programs and resources. The PEF has also funded infrastructure improvements such as the creation of a state-of-the-art science and math lab at Pentucket High School, and deployment of modern wireless connectivity across the PRSD.  The PEF relies on the generosity of private citizens and local businesses in its fundraising efforts, as well as the active participation of volunteers to staff its many programs and events.
