Updated PiE Calendar
- We’ve added dates for a number of events to the second half of the school year – example Color Run, Paint Nights, Plant Sale! It is available at https://dtspie.com/
Note To School
- Tired of writing notes to the school when your child needs to stay after school or is being signed out early?
- PiE has just the answer - a notepad with the key data points the school needs already pre-printed and organized. Simply fill in your personal data and send along with your child.
- Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to order yours. One pad is $3; two pads for $5.
ShopRite Gift Card Program
- Do you shop at ShopRite? Help us earn money all year long by simply buying gift cards from PiE. Register for your increment using the form found here: https://dtspie.com/support-pie-donate/
- How it works - you register using the form, each month, you will receive the gift card increment (for example $100), and then you write a check to PiE for the $100. Super simple and if you shop at ShopRite, it doesn’t cost you anything more or less!!
- PiE makes 5% on every gift card purchase so that same $100, earns PiE $5.
- VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for PiE Events!
Want to volunteer some of your time for PiE events? Fill out the Google Form & be notified of any upcoming PiE events in need of volunteers.
There are also some PiE committees in need of a chairperson. For more information or questions contact Debbie Lubitz at email@example.com.
**Please note that lunch is no longer offered free of charge. Student lunches will be $3.50, plus an additional cost for snacks.**
Free & Reduced Lunch
Parents may apply for a free and reduced lunch at any time during the school year.
