Dubois Elementary to Kick off United Way Campaign Starting Monday, October 21

October 20, 2019

It is once again time for our United Way Fundraising Campaign.  The United Way of Central Illinois provides funding for multiple programs that are utilized by our students and families daily.  Those programs include but are not limited to Compass for Kids, Boys and Girls Club After School Program, St. John’s Breadline, Contact Ministries and Helping Hands of Springfield.  This campaign is a great way to teach our students how important it is to give back to the community that we live in.  It also is a way that for a few dollars, our students can have a little fun.  Please help your student participate in the activities for United Way listed below.  All events will cost $1 per student and should be given to your child’s teacher each day.  You can either send money for each event or you can send $5 on both  Mondays for the entire week.  Thanks in advance for your participation on this important week for our school and our community.
