Show your support for P-H-M principals AND help raise money for our schools.
At the P-H-M Education Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Gala on April 23, P-H-M principals will perform Vaudeville-style acts, competing against other P-H-M school teams.
All the acts will be unique and definitely entertaining, but only one of the six teams—the one with the most votes—will win the PHaMmy award!
Here’s how you can help raise money for our schools:
- Watch the brief promo videos below to see what each team is up to, then vote for your favorite—or vote for all of them!
- Votes cost $10 each and you can cast multiple votes between now and the evening of the Gala. Follow the directions provided below the videos.
- 50% of what each team raises will go directly back to that team’s schools!
The first 100 votes for each team will be matched dollar for dollar by Gary Fox of Crowe Horwath. (Mr. Fox is P-H-M Board of School Trustees President, and an Education Foundation Board Member.)
Team One: Penn Principal Steve Hope and his talented team
Team Two: Three elementary principals up for the challenge
Team Three: A 5-principal act!
Team Four: Middle School principals joining forces
Team Five: Don’t underestimate these three!
Team Six: A Wildcard entry! Upstart or underdog?

The P-H-M Education Foundation has many reasons to celebrate its 20 years of service to the P-H-M community.
Since 1996, the Foundation has distributed more than $520,000 to our schools and classrooms via innovative teaching grants. The Foundation also uses proceeds to underwrite district activities with widespread impact such as “Running is Elementary” and the “Summer Visual Arts Academy.”
