Spring Donation Drive & End of Year T-shirts

Each year our PTO provides activities and enrichment for our students, teachers, and their families. Those activities (i.e. Teacher Appreciation & Treats, PTO events such as the Family Game/Movie Night, and Daddy/Daughter & Mother/Son events, and Field Day) are funded annually by the PTO through the funds raised at DolphinFest, our annual carnival & silent auction.

This year, due to pandemic restrictions governing gatherings and the challenges procuring external auction items, our typical DolphinFest simply wasn't feasible. While we searched for every fundraising option, it became evident that the best option available was hosting a Family Donation Drive.

We know it’s the end of the year and we are all winding down and getting ready for summer, but this drive will ensure that we are prepared and ready to support our school community full speed ahead in the Fall. We’ve had tremendous success with Family Donation Drives in the past and know we can do it again!

All donations of any amount are welcome! You may also purchase our End of Year T-shirt to commemorate such a special year! And watch your Wednesday Folder and the PTO Facebook Page for more information on Special Sealed Bid Auction Items!!!

Field Day

We are so excited for our students to participate in Field Day this year! It’s always an unforgettable favorite for our Dogwood Dolphins. This year will look a little different from years past, with specialists and assistants as our lane volunteers and our PTO assisting with tent set up and equipment. 

What hasn’t changed is that your help is needed to make Field Day a success! You will be receiving more information from your room parents on how you can help your class and details about your child’s Field Day.

We are excited that parents will be able to attend Field Day! We will have a parent cheering section/viewing area on the north side of the field (classes will be set on the south side). Parents are asked to arrive from Dogwood Rd between the fire station and the playground to a check-in area, and then to remain in the parent viewing area for the entire event. All attendees will be required to check-in and wear a mask. No siblings will be allowed to attend (so make your arrangements now!) We look forward to sharing this special and fun day with you!
