What an amazing week we have coming up! As we wrap up the first month of an EPIC school year, I wanted to take a minute to update everyone on some important things we have going on this week.
BOOK FAIR - Our Scholastic Bookfair is upon us and last week, most of students at DDE had the opportunity to stop by and make a "Wish List."
No, you do not have to buy all the items on the wish list. IF your child picked a book or books that you would like, you can send cash or a check in to school with them on Monday or Tuesday, and one of our awesome Bookfair volunteers will help them. We also encourage parents to stop by the Book Fair during curriculum night on the 24th. Scholastic donates a percentage of every purchase directly back to the PTO, so buying a book or two now gets us on the right foot for an EPIC year.
TULLYS NIGHT - This is one of my favorite nights of the year. If you are going to have dinner, why not have dinner with some amazing DDE families. Stop by Tullys on 7th North Street Thursday, the 26th! Tully's is donating 10% of your purchase back to the PTO, but more than that, this is a great night to kick back and show a local business how our DDE Family turns out for events. Let's PACK THE HOUSE! (Be sure to bring your flyer. Don't have one, download one here!)
PAIGES PAJAMARAMA - September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and in an effort to help support Golisano Children's Hospital, the Liverpool district has partnered with Paiges Butterfly Run, Inc to take part in Paiges Pajamarama! On Friday, September 27, for a $1.00 donation, your child can wear their PAJAMAS TO SCHOOL.
WALK-A-THON - We will have some information on our this years Walk-A-Thon available at the Bookfair on Tuesday night, and more info will come home early next week. Right now we are finalizing our grand prizes, and all I can say is that this year is going to be the BEST YEAR YET. Stay tuned.
