It was so nice to see so many Dubois families and friends at our Applebee’s fundraiser. Thank you to all who came out early on a Saturday morning to enjoy breakfast with us. It was such a success and so much fun that we will try to hold this event a few times next year too! We have some things coming up this spring such as Lights for Learning, Noodles Night, and Family Fun at Skateland.

Lights for Learning“ Our Lights for Learning program will kick off on April 16th with a presentation for the kids on energy efficiency and preserving our environment. Information will come home with them on what they have learned and the brochure and order form for energy efficient light bulbs. This program donates a large percentage of sales to our school and they have great prices. When we did this program a few years ago, the bulbs from Lights for Learning were even more economical than bulbs you purchase at local hardware stores such as Lowes or Menards. Please take advantage of this opportunity by purchasing your light bulbs during our fundraiser. You will be helping the environment, saving money and helping your child’s school all at the same time.

Family Fun at Skateland - we are planning an evening of skating for our Dubois families at Skateland this spring. Information will be coming home soon in your child’s Tuesday folder.

Market Day - We would like to congratulate both Mrs. Elliott’s and Ms. Howards class on winning our Market Day contest! They had the highest percentage of students ordering delicious food from our monthly Market Day program. They won a dessert party for their classes and a gift card for their teachers. We will continue our Market Day monthly food fundraiser throughout the summer this year. There will be one delivery date on July 12 and another one on August 9th. More information will come home as we get closer to summer break. If you haven’t yet given our monthly Market Day a try, please do so. It is quick, easy and has a variety of order and delivery options, including internet ordering, paper ordering, internet pay, or payment at time of pick up. You can pay with a credit card if ordering on the website or use a check, cash, or link card if paying at pick up. We all have to feed our families and this is a great way to do just that and support our school at the same time. If you ever have any questions about Market Day, please give us a call.

Box Tops for Education - We made another submission to Box Tops for Education in March, brining our yearly total to just over $1,100.00. Great job everyone! Keep them coming and we will keep cutting, counting, and sending them in!

Please join us for our next PTO meeting on Tuesday, April 10th at 6:00 pm in the school library.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact any member of the PTO board. We enjoy hearing from you!
