Temecula Preparatory School (TPS) held its first annual fundraiser for Pennypickle’s Workshop, the Temecula Children’s Museum on May 24, 2014.
Friends of the Temecula Children's Museum Ambassador, Jami McNees, stopped by to receive the check for $771. This money was raised by TPS students to support Pennypickle’s Workshop, which is a local, educational science discovery center.
In addition, Temecula Preparatory School’s Kindergarten class takes its annual field study trip to Pennypickle’s as it engages children in science through sensory play which helps students to grasp high level scientific concepts such as gravity, electricity, motion, and sound waves.
