A Few More Things....

Just a few more things we were informed about after my newsletter went home. My apologies for another email this week, but a lot of these things will occur soon.

ASD Annual Fundraising Campaign

ASD's Annual Fundraising Campaign has begun and we are collecting donations. A form was sent home in the Thursday folder where you could authorize a donation through your dragon card, or you may send in cash. Thank you to those of you who have donated-- our goal is to get 100% participation.

This year we will be having a little competition. High-Five hand stickers will be given to all classrooms for students to write their message to ASD. Classes will then display their hands outside of their classrooms in creative ways. On Wednesday, April 13th, Ms. Lana and Ms. Mindy will pick the best displays from each grade level for a popcorn party prize.

The week of April 17th - 21st tables will be set up outside of gate 5 before and after for parents and students to donate with Dragon Bands. At the end of the campaign the class from each grade level the raises the most money will win a hotdog BBQ!

Library Used Book Sale

It's time for our Library annual used book sale. We will gladly accept any gently used books (clean, no pages missing) for this annual sale. The sale will be April 26, 27, and 28, including the Student-led Conferences. For every donation of three books, you will receive a coupon for one free used book.

April 5- 21: Art Competition

Students in LES and UES can enter an art competition for the chance to win one of three grand prizes, or a certificate of participation. Students can visit Ms. Stephanie (Room 1515) to pay 10qr to enter, with funds going toward Hugo and Victor, two worthy high school students who need help to pay for college! (Ms. Willcott and Ms. Boisaubin taught them in Paraguay when they were elementary students). The artwork must be one of three themes and can be submitted until April 21st. All pieces will be judged and displayed at parent/ teacher conferences.

April 11-13 @ snack/ recess: Soccer Shoot Out

Students in LES and UES have the chance to shoot goals against high school students and UES teachers! It costs 5qr for 3 attempts, and anyone who makes 9+ goals has the chance to win a fancy, new soccer ball! Find us on the soccer field. All proceeds go to Qatar Red Crescent.

April 14 @ snack/ recess: Dance-a-Thon!

LES (Prek to grade 2) students can come to the MPR to dance along to fun music videos! It costs 5qr to attend; all money raised will go to Syrian refugee children.

April 24-26 @ snack/ recess: Hockey Shoot Out

LES and UES students can take their chance at swinging a stick at hockey pucks against some talented UES goalies! It costs 5qr for 3 attempts, and if you make at least one goal you win a small prize. All funds will go to Robert's school in Kenya.
Please feel free to share with your class, put in your weekly newsletters, and/or send students to me with questions (Ms. Stephanie in Room 1515)! Any support will be greatly appreciated.
