Virtual Open House and General PTA Meeting Are Wednesday

Douglas Elementary Virtual Open House and PTA General Meeting graphic

Mark your calendars!

The Douglas Virtual Open House is Weds., Sept. 15. There are two sessions: 5:30-6 p.m. and 6-6:30 p.m. Your teachers will provide their individual Google Meet codes, or you can keep an eye on this page on the school website as the teachers fill in their codes.

Following the Open House, the Douglas PTA General Meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. Principal Burns will provide an update at the PTA meeting. Join here:

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!

Slides and Recording of Principal Burns’ Back-to-School Chat

If you missed this session with Principal Burns on Monday, never fear! Here are the slides and recording  from the event.

As always, if you have questions, please feel free to reach out to the school’s main office (919-881-4894), your students’ teachers or Principal Burns. The PTA is also here to help: Contact us here.

It’s almost time to head back to school!
