Donate a Pie
The PTO would like to kick off the Thanksgiving season and indulge our D103 Staff with an assortment of pies! We are asking for your help in donating a pie on Friday, Nov. 3. It can be store bought or homemade!
Drop off will take place between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 3, at each school. Please label the pie with your name and the type of pie it is. Please use a disposable pie tin or something you otherwise do not want returned.
Please sign up on Membership Tookit and list the type of pie you will bring. Visit the Membership Toolkit if you prefer to make a financial donation, instead. Please contact Marybeth Lockwood with any questions.
Power of Belonging
Join SACEE and Parent Ed virtually on Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 7:00 p.m. to discuss how to create an environment where everyone can thrive and every student feels a sense of belonging.
This critical conversation will explore why a student’s sense of belonging is so important to their overall success and well-being and the role parents can play in supporting this most basic need. Our speaker Sabrina Rahman has helped the nation's top companies and government institutions build healthy, high performing organizational cultures.
After the presentation, Sabrina will be joined by Katie Reynolds, assistant superintendent and Kendra Perri, interim principal of Daniel Wright Junior High School, to field your questions about fostering belonging in our schools.
