Dot Day- Sept. 13th

Join us for Dot Day! We will have a parade at school on Friday, Sept. 13th at 2:40 pm. You are welcome to join as we celebrate creativity and making your mark. All students will participate in the Dot Day Parade.


International Dot Day, a global celebration of creativity, courage, and collaboration, based on the book The Dot.


The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe.

And each year on International Dot Day – with the help of people just like you –the inspiration continues. What started as a story in the pages of a book is transforming teaching and learning around the world as people of all ages re-discover the power and potential of creativity in all they do.

Brighter Bites is a non-profit organization that brings fresh fruits and vegetables to schools. All you have to do it sign up! A sign-up sheet went home with your child. Please return it to your child's teacher.


The bags of fruits and vegetables will be picked up by parents Wednesday afternoons from 3:30-4:30 by the gym.


We will need volunteers to help bag and sort the fruits and vegetables for the students from 11-1 on Wednesdays. If you are able to come and volunteer please email our school secretary, Magen Glaude, at magen.glaude@aliefisd.net .
