Mission Statement

The Plum Borough Education Association (PBEA) will protect the professional rights of all its members while positively impacting the quality of education offered in the Plum Borough School District.

Festival in the Park and Costume Parade

On Sunday, October 22, 2017, the Plum Borough Education Association (PBEA) is once again proud to host the seventh annual Festival in the Park and Costume Parade.  This family-friendly event at Boyce Park will include:  a costume parade, children's activities, food vendors, and raffle baskets.  The festival is held in memory of Kim, Brenna, and Mikaela Griffith who lost their lives much too soon in a flash flood on Washington Boulevard on August 19, 2011. Last year’s festival allowed us to purchase 150 backpacks filled with school supplies for needy students in the Plum Borough School District. 

The proceeds of this year’s event will help the family of Maelynn Tribendis.  Maelynn (age 2 ½) was diagnosed at 18 months old with Periventricular Leukomalacia (PVL) and Spastic Cerebral Palsy (CP).  She currently undergoes physical and occupational therapy weekly, and under the care of many specialty doctors.  She requires orthotics and other equipment for everyday life.  Luckily, Maelynn has the determination, courage, and strength to fight through anything!  Maelynn’s parents, Kaitlyn (Hester) and Alex Tribendis graduated from Plum in 2006 and 2004 respectively have recently moved back home to Plum.
