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.
Our annual passive fundraiser is well underway and we would like to highlight some reasons to donate and to present our NEW opportunities for local businesses to support Douglas! Our goal is open and so far we have raised $5,000 to be used toward our teacher support fund, our Covid Care resources such as PPE, and toward student services such as technology and arts education!
Any contribution makes a difference! Please donate online today:
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.
Our new spirit wear is all about being comfy and cozy while we learn from home. Think flannels for PJ day (every day?), soft-spun and regular tees, plush hoodies and fleece blankies to curl up with in front of your next Google Meet.
We also have some loved classics like car magnets and our popular Douglas trucker hat.
We cannot wait to see everyone in their new spirit wear, which is available now for preorder! Items will be distributed at September’s school material pickup event — stay tuned for exact dates from the school.
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 $22,000for 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.
