Dixon Elementary PTO is very excited about the school year and all the events we are planning. Volunteer opportunities are endless. Please consider participating in Sanity Savers, Santa Shop, Jump Rope For Heart, Teacher Appreciation Week, Fall/Spring Fundraisers, Book Fair and Fun Day to only mention a few. A full description of volunteer opportunities can be found in our Welcome Back Packet under the "Forms" section (above in blue). Even if you can't volunteer, please consider joining DES PTO for FREE. We look forward to working closely with you and seeing you at the school. Thank you so much for volunteering and supporting your school.
The Candyman fundraiser ends September 24th. If you have completed your order please have your child hand it in to their teacher. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Thank you for your support. The orders will be in the first two weeks of November. The main event and limo lunch ride will be on November 12th. We will need volunteers to help with the unloading of the orders and the day of the main event. If you are able to volunteer please contact our volunteer coordinator Barbara Pearce at email@example.com
We had our first popcorn Friday on September 12th. The next popcorn Friday will be this Friday September 26th. The future dates for popcorn Friday are Oct. 10th, Oct. 24th, Nov. 1st, and Nov. 15th. There will be no popcorn Fridays during the month of December. Bonnie Mulhern is the chair of the popcorn committee. If you are interested in serving on the popcorn committee, please contact Barbara Pearce.
The yearbook committee co-chairs are Teresa Moore and Heather Rose. If you are interested in the yearbook committee, please contact Barbara Pearce.
The sanity savers committee chair is Becky Espinoza. This is a committee designed to help out teachers in the workroom. Teachers will bring in work requests to help with projects, copying, or cutting out and laminating. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please contact Barbara Pearce.
We will be running a box top contest from December 1st until January 31st. The classroom that submits the most box tops wins $250 to spend in their classroom. The winner of each grade level wins an ice cream party. If you are interested in serving on the box top committee, please contact Barbara Pearce.
We will also be collecting Labels for Education. This is separate form box tops and unlike box tops, label points do not expire. If you have any Labels for Education please drop them off in the orange box next to the computer check in desk in the front lobby.
At the meeting, it was decided that each grade level would put together a basket for a silent auction during the fall festival. The festival is on Nov. 21st. We are still in need of volunteers to help with this fundraiser. We need to meet with each grade level and come up with a theme for each basket. If you are interested in helping, please contact Barbara Pearce.
There are many upcoming volunteer opportunities. The book fair will take place September 24th-29th. The Santa shop will run December 8th-12th. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Barbara Pearce.
Some future fundraisers are the 5K fun run and a used book sale. These take please in the spring. More information on these events in the future. The next meeting will be on October 9th 8:45 am in the cafeteria.
