Hello Dubois families!

Our February PTO meeting was canceled, but we hope to see you all at our next meeting on March 13th at 6:00 pm in the school library. We would like to thank all of you for participating in our monthly Market Day fundraiser. Your continued support is what makes it possible for us to help our school. Also, a big thanks to everyone for ordering during our February contest! We will let you know which class won the dessert party and gift card in the next newsletter. However, those of you who are new to Market Day will come to love it as much as we do. It is a great feeling to be able to feed your family and support your child’s school at the same time. I encourage anyone who hasn’t had a chance to participate to give it try. Normally Market Day is only available during the school year, but we are looking into continuing the program through the summer. There are some specific requirements that have to be met, one of them being a minimum order each month. As we are evaluating whether or not we can meet this minimum, it would be helpful to know if you would like to continue participating throughout the summer. If this is something you would like to see, please contact me via phone or e-mail (contact info below), or fill out the form below and send it back to school. We appreciate your input as we make this decision. Also, just a reminder that due to Spring Break, the April pick-up will actually be a few days early on March 29th.

As we draw near to the last quarter of the school year, it is time for nominations for PTO Board elections. If you would like to be on our PTO Board, please fill out the nomination form below and send it back to the school by April 1st. We will hold elections at our last meeting in May.

Again, thank you to everyone for helping out at our school. Whether it’s by sending things in to your child’s class, volunteering at the school, coming to fundraisers, making phone calls, ordering Market day, coming to our PTO and FACE meetings, or sending in Box Tops or Labels for Education, it makes a big difference! Together we create success!!
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any member of our PTO Board. We would love to hear from you.
