Welcome back to school! It’s hard to believe summer is over, but I know that we’re all looking forward to another great year at Dubois. We have a very active and dedicated PTO and want to encourage everyone to get involved in any way you can. It’s a great way to build a connection with fellow parents, teachers and staff and help to support the learning and community that is a special part of Dubois School.

Our first meeting of the year will be held on Tuesday, September 8th at 7:00 p.m. in the school library. In addition, we would like to personally invite all kindergarten families and other families new to Dubois for a “Meet & Greet” at 6:30 p.m., and then join us for the PTO meeting to follow. This will be a great opportunity for new families to meet the PTO board as well as each other.

The PTO meetings generally run an hour long and we follow an outlined agenda each month. Everyone has a voice and we welcome fresh ideas! 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!
