Spirit Nights Galore!

There are a number of Spirit Night events on the calendar this spring, featuring everything from pizza to sporting goods to ice cream. Spirit nights are a fun way to support our school and the local community. Be sure to mention Douglas Elementary at each one!

  • March 15-31: Shop Omega Sports at North Hills, and 10% of sales go to Douglas. In addition to supporting our school, if you mention Douglas at checkout, you’ll get 10% off your purchase. Omega is also collecting donated basketballs, soccer balls and footballs for Douglas PE teacher Ms. Hamilton. These can be purchased and donated in-store, or you can bring in and donate lightly used balls.

Make a Difference for Douglas!

Dragonfire, our annual passive fundraiser, starts TODAY. Your support is more important than ever as we address new challenges brought on by COVID-19.

As always, 100% of every donation goes directly to the PTA to meet school needs. 

In past years, Dragonfire has funded everything from classroom smartboards to Arts, Science, Math and Literacy Nights. This year, we have already invested in teacher and staff support (including providing PPE, disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer), technology upgrades, a COVID Emergency Support Fund and more. 

Our 2020 goal is open! 

This year’s Dragonfire will look a bit different. We won’t have the Coin War between classes or prizes for the class who collects the most money, BUT we do have new ways to donate online!

Check out our Dragonfire flyer for more details, including a form to send to school if you’d rather pay by check, and corporate matching information. 

Despite the massive challenges brought on by COVID-19, our school community is stronger than ever. Your Dragonfire contribution will help us meet pressing needs AND create new opportunities for our students and staff.

It’s time to ROAR, Dragons! Let’s do this!

It’s Almost Time for the Fun Run!

Mindspark Mystery Lab Wild West logo

Our main fundraiser this year is the Douglas Dragons Fun Run! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a pep rally on Wednesday, March 4. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) at the Fun Run, which takes place on Friday, March 13.

Our goal is to raise $22,000 for technology, a gaga pit and artists in residence, and we need your help! We’ve asked the experts at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable and more fun.

Students will also experience a fun character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST, which combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) with character-building. While they’re teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

Please help our school by getting pledges from family and friends and entering them on FUNRUN.COM. All families are invited to come out and cheer on our students at the Fun Run on March 13. Stay tuned to the Dragoneer e-newsletter and Douglas PTA Facebook page for more details.

Thanks so much for your support!
