PTO

Happy March DMMS Families!


We have kicked off 2017 with the prizes for Fall Fundraiser sales being distributed. The students loved getting to spin the prize wheel and roll the dice for $$ prizes. Thank you to all the families that supported this effort.


We had a great turn out for our January PTO meeting with a lot of new faces! Thank you for coming out, and showing an interest in your child's school. If you can make it out to the early April meeting we strongly encourage you to attend. (Watch our Facebook page or the newsletter for the date and time)


Other upcoming activities for the PTO include : Spring Fundraiser kicked off this week! We will be selling Easter Candy, Tumblers and other goodies in the two catalogs. Orders and money will be due to Homeroom teachers by Monday March 6th. Checks can be made payable to DMMS PTO. Orders will arrive the first week of April before our Spring Break! The money raised from the fundraisers benefits the entire school- we make sure that each grade has money for field trips and other activities - author visits.


We will need help on March 9th with tallying the fundraiser, and of course help with distribution day in April. Please let us know if you want to help! The more the merrier!

Looking forward in March as we will be distributing snack bags to the teachers for Parent-Teacher Conferences on Friday March 10th. A few volunteers to help with that are more than welcome! Make sure to sign up for your conference spot!


Upcoming grade level events include:

7th Grade Chipotle Night on Wednesday, March 15th. Make sure to get out and support their efforts! This is a great way to help them earn extra funds needed for upcoming field trips/end of year celebrations! Spread the word!


Also, please continue to send in food for the cupboard and also any spring clothes for the clothes closet! Builders Club is collecting boxtops and we are thrilled to say we earned over $500 on the last submission! That's alot of boxtops!!


If you haven't already signed up to receive our PTO updates via email.. please visit the DMMS website and click on Parent Information tab... or visit this website: http://dmms.wps.k12.va.us/parent-information.html

That's all for this month.. let's hope that groundhogs predictions for 6 more weeks of winter is wrong and that spring shows up early! It certainly feels like it out there today!


Take care

DMMS PTO President 2016-2017
