Share Your Thoughts: School of Excellence Survey

Douglas Elementary is in the process of applying for a School of Excellence designation, a program through the national PTA. Part of this is getting feedback from families, administrators and teachers during the school year. We invite you to respond to the survey anonymously.

It’s Dragonfire Time!

Dragonfire — Douglas Elementary’s annual no-fuss fundraiser — raises money for programs, equipment and other needs that benefit our children and school. 100% of the funds raised go to Douglas.

Your gift matters. Any amount you’re able to contribute makes a difference. The PTA pools these funds together to make a bigger impact than any of us can do alone. You can donate online or send cash or check (payable to Douglas Elementary PTA, memo: Dragonfire) to your child’s teacher. Increase your impact by asking your employer if they’ll match your donation (our tax ID is 56-1644792).

Your voice matters. We want to know what you’d like to see done with Dragonfire funds raised. Share your ideas by the end of the week and you could win a restaurant gift card, gift basket or other fun items. Students, families and teachers/staff are eligible to participate to win.

Come Help Paint Tables for our Dragons!

Thanks to a generous donation of tables from a Douglas family, the PTA was able to add tilting umbrellas and create multiple outdoor seating areas like the one pictured above in our K-1 outdoor space.

Another set of tables is set to arrive soon, and we need your help painting them on Saturday!

We are hoping to have at least 12 volunteers, but more are definitely welcome as there are a few other projects around campus that could use a helping hand — and we would graciously accept that help on this National Day of Service.

Thank you!
