Thanks to everyone for coming to the first PTO meeting last month! It was nice to see so many familiar faces, along with some new faces this year. Some fun events are coming up this fall, so please mark your calendars now:

October 20 - Dubois Night @ Chuck E. Cheese
October 26 - Lights 4 Learning
November 15 - Barnes & Noble Bookfair

Thanks to all the students who participated in our Fall Fundraiser. Once we have the totals confirmed and the top seller determined, I will announce that in the November newsletter.

Also, you should have received an Order Form for our new Dubois Value Cards. If not, please contact the office and one can be sent home to you. For a one time cost of $10, these cards can be used for discounts at 15 different vendors in Springfield and are valid until September 2011. Be sure to pick up your card ASAP and start saving $$ on some of our favorite locations around town! PS-these would also make excellent gifts during the holidays!

PTO is also continuing to collect Box Tops and Campbell soup labels, so please send them in to your teacher as often as you can.

The next PTO meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 12th at 6:00 pm in the school library. (Please note the meeting time change this year). Please note also that child-care is available at each meeting free of charge. While the parents meet in the library, there is a responsible person assigned to watch the children who will take them to the gym or art room for free play, or during good weather, might take them outside.

If you ever have any questions about a PTO event, meeting or just PTO in general...please feel free to contact anyone on the PTO board.

Hope to see you soon!
