Davis Hill PTA Needs YOU!

Our last PTA meeting for the 2015-2016 school year will be held on Monday, May 16th at 7pm.  During this meeting, members will be asked to vote new Board Member volunteers into important positions, as many current board members are “graduating out.”   Please join us at this meeting and more importantly, please consider supporting your child’s school by serving as a PTA volunteer.

We support the Wachusett Food Pantry by taking food donations on the first Wednesday of every month, September – June.  In fact, our school is the biggest single donor to the pantry, after their main fundraiser The Holden Road Race.

We collect non-perishable, non-expired food items of any kind but for fun, we have a “Theme” each month with a corresponding fun theme for the kids that participate.  It is an excellent opportunity for our students to contribute to our greater community and have fun at the same time!

If you are available on Wednesday mornings, please consider helping collect & transport the food from Davis Hill to the pantry’s West Boylston location! Email us if you have any questions at davishillpta@gmail.com

Collection Date / Food Collection Theme / Fun Theme

May 4th / “Cake-Brownie Mix” / Spirit Wear Day (Students wear their favorite “Davis Hill” shirts, shorts, or pants.)

June 1st / “Drinks & Drink Mixes” / Crazy Hat-Crazy Hair Day

Once each month, thanks to a dedicated volunteer, Ms. Andrea Olson, the “School Store” is open with items available for purchase to the students.  A table is set up outside the cafeteria during lunch times and after eating, students are allowed to peruse and shop for various items.  Folder, pencils, erasers, “grippies,” bookmarks and the like are available.  This year, Ms. Olson is excited about adding new items to the store, so keep your eyes out for some cool new things for sale!

The FINAL School Store will be open on May 6th.

Please see the calendar for School Store Dates and reminders and updates will gladly be posted on our Facebook Page.

Note: This service is referred to as the “School Store” in order to differentiate it from the “Spirit Wear” sale where items of clothing (Tshirts, flannel pants, sweatshirts, etc.) with the Davis Hill logo are available for purchase at separate times.

See Box Tops For Education’s latest contest to easily win up to 5,000 free boxtops for our school here!

Simply have your child bring clipped Box Tops for Education Labels to the school. Volunteers will submit the counted labels to General Mills, who in turn give us ten cents for each Box Top! This may seem insignificant, but with all of us working together it adds up quickly.

For every submission of 25 box tops (in zip-lock bags or on the downloaded sheets), your child will be entered to win a Raffle drawing that is held on the last Friday of every month and announced during morning school announcements!

The final dates of the 2015-2016 Box Top Raffle Drawings are:

(Fridays)  May 27th, and June 17th.

For more information about Box Tops for Education and eligible products, please see their website.

Or you can do your online shopping through their website and our PTA gets a donation every time!
