We Need More Help to Pull Off
Cookie Day on Thursday 12/17
On December 16, the DHHS PTO will continue the tradition of providing holiday treats for teachers and staff, AND we will gather in a socially distanced way to CHEER THEM ON as they drive through to pick up their treats. 

WE NEED: 

* PEOPLE TO COME TO DHHS Students and Parents to spread HOLIDAY CHEER to our teachers. Make signs, bring megaphones and pompoms, and CHEER as they drive through for contactless cookie pickup!

* HOLIDAY TREATS Sweet and savory, cookies and other things, to distribute. For each teacher and staff member to receive one dozen treats, we need 140 DOZEN treats donated. So pull out your favorite recipes and double or triple them! Treats must be dropped off at designated neighborhood locations NO LATER THAN 8 PM on Tuesday 12/15. Please deliver treats in sealed containers that you do not expect to be returned.

* ASSEMBLY AND SETUP VOLUNTEERS To be COVID-safe, we will be collecting cookies in advance, and pre-assembling the cookie bags for the teachers and staff to pick up. You will come early on 12/16 to set up and be ready for our TEACHER DRIVE-THROUGH, which will begin at 3 pm. We also need Treat Bags and Ziplocs to assemble the treats!
