From the HSA
A big thank you to all our volunteers who have helped our new kindergarteners learn the routines over the last two weeks - your support is really appreciated.
Thank you also to everyone who joined us on Monday at our First HSA meeting of the year. It was great to see so many new faces.
Please join our two Facebook pages to keep up to date with information:
Dorothy Nolan HSA, our official page and Parents of DN Elementary School, our less official page where you can ask questions and talk about educational issues of interest to you. If you need to contact us please use our email address
Easy Shopping Fundriasers:
1) Register your Price Chopper card to the school, our school code is 16358. Or you can send your details in to school and we can arrange registering your card to the school.
2) Use www.smile.amazon.com when making purchases on Amazon and register your account to Dorothy Nolan Home School Association, then 0.5% of qualifying purchase is donated to our HSA.
3) We are participating in the Hannafords Helps Schools program this Fall, from now through Dec 3rd.
Please support us by depositing your school dollars in our slot in the collection bin, AND by encouraging all your friends and neighbours to as well!
4)(Campbell's) Label for Education program is ending. We will still collect all labels for the full calendar year. The Company is not printing them on products anymore so there should not be many incoming. But we would love to have all that are sitting in drawers, pantries or on items.
Five Guys Fundriaser:
Help support the 5th grade graduation class and the Dorothy Nolan HSA on Thursday, Sept. 22nd from 4 PM-9 PM. See our flyer below.
