Thanksgiving Pies for Teachers

Any way you slice it, we’re thankful for our Douglas teachers and staff! Show your gratitude to them this Thanksgiving and gift a Douglas teacher or staff member a delicious pie.

Pies are $11 and sales support our neighbors at Sanderson High School’s Academy of Finance. The specific flavor of pie will be determined by the PTA. Pies will be delivered directly to the school on Nov. 21. You do not need to do anything after finalizing your purchase! Easy peasy!

We have close to 85 employees and we’d love to show our thanks each and every amazing Douglas staff member with a pie. Please purchase your pies by the end of the day, Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Thank you for supporting our awesome teachers and staff!

Dragon Fire is Here!

Dragon Fire — Douglas Elementary’s annual no-fuss fundraiser — starts today! Dragon Fire is one of our two main fundraisers for Douglas, and it raises money for programs, equipment and other needs that benefit our children and school. 100% of the funds raised go to Douglas. No selling stuff to friends and family!

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. Increase your impact by asking your employer if they’ll match your donation (our tax ID is 56-1644792)!

Our goal is to raise $16,000 in the 16 school days of November. 

The $16,000 will allow PTA to fund:

  • Staff appreciation
  • Campus interior and exterior beautification
  • Teacher grants
  • Cultural arts programs
  • Portable projectors
  • Soccer goals
  • Updated furniture for the Media Center
  • Decodable texts for students

 How can I contribute? 

Thank you so much for supporting our Douglas community!

Dragonfire is Coming!

Dragonfire — Douglas Elementary PTA’s annual no-fuss fundraiser — starts November 1! Dragonfire raises money for programs, equipment and other needs that benefit our children and school. And the best part is that since Dragonfire is a nofuss fundraiser, 100% of the money raised go back to Douglas and we don’t have to sell coupon books, wrapping paper, or magazines to family and friends. Dragonfire is an easy way for the PTA to start investing in campus and classroom projects. Dragonfire is only one of two fundraisers for the entire school year.

This year, our goal is to raise $16,000 in 16 days. Your donations will go toward: Maintaining our teacher grants, ongoing staff appreciation, and landscaping plans. We are planning to add portable projectors, install soccer goals, complete an interior refresh, and purchase updated furniture for the media center and decodable texts.

Get ready to donate, Dragons!
