We hope everyone is back in full swing after the holiday break. We will be having a pancake breakfast at the Applebee’s on Veteran’s Parkway on Saturday, March 3rd. Teachers, staff, and parent volunteers will be serving this yummy food to our families. It will be a fun morning for all so come out and join us for a great breakfast.  Information will be coming home in your child’s Tuesday folder as the date gets closer. 

Also, a big thank you goes out to all of our loyal Market Day customers. Your continued support really means a lot to us. Hopefully all of our Dubois families will get a chance to try it out. It really is a great way to support our school and feed your family at the same time. Some things in the catalog seem expensive at first glance, but once you try it and realize how large the portion sizes are, how many you get in each package, how easy it is to prepare and the superb quality of the food, you will realize that it is very economical.

To encourage families to give Market Day a try, we will be holding a contest March 6th through the 24th. The class who has the highest percentage of students ordering will win a dessert party for the entire class and the teacher will get a $20 gift card to use in the classroom.  This means even if you order just  one item, it will help your child’s class towards winning the contest. It’s not about how much money is spent, it’s about the number of students participating. Reminders about the contest will be sent home in the coming weeks.
As always, thank you for sending in those Box Tops for Education! Keep them coming!!
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any of the PTO Board Members. We’d love to hear from you!
