Pence School Fundraiser

Pence Families-


We have once again decided to do an all virtual fundraiser because: 1) It is safe = no contact 2) It is easy. We also understand that some of you would prefer just to make a donation to the school and that will certainly be appreciated as well! If you so choose this option, just send a check in with your student to school.


The school uses fundraiser money to benefit our students. Here are some of the thngs we have used our fundraiser money for in the past:


-To reduce the cost of field trips for familes

-School-wide STEM Fair

-Library renovation

-Student incentive programs

-Classroom furnishings such as flexible seating, etc.

-Funding for our end of the year "Pence Pride Day"

-Etc.

Club Soccer

Club soccer will begin Monday. Students should plan on staying on the days that were chosen on the form: Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. It will end promptly at 4:30 PM. Student pick-up will take place in the front parking lot. Please be here (on time) at 4:30 PM. For those riding the bus (on Tuesday/Thursday), please be patient as it may take a while for our drivers to drop everyone off as they have a wide area to cover. We look forward to having a great time together!

This is a friendly reminder that we would like for all families to appropach the school from the south on Ashby Street during drop-off and pick-up times. (Please see the map above.) We have worked with the Dayton Police Department to identify this plan to ensure the safety of our students, parents, and community. We ask that you adhere to this request on a daily basis throughout the year.


Thank you for your cooperation!
