  • Donut Day is Thursday, March 26th from 8:00-8:25 AM.

Students can invite their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, family friends, or anyone they want to celebrate with. Due to parking and cafeteria space limitations, please only attend one of the two events. The visiting parent/guardian is expected to stay with their child from 8:00-8:25.

Bernies's Books! We give them out.... We also collect for others!

The D303 donation drive for Bernie’s Books will be the two weeks right after spring break, April 6-17, 2020. Please consider bringing in new and gently used children’s books for birth through 6th grade to Anderson during the donation drive. Parents or students may place books in the collection bins located in the front lobby. D303’s goal for the 2020 donation drive is 20,000 books. Every book will help us reach our goal.
