Dragonfire is Here!

dragonfireDragonfire is Douglas’s annual passive fundraiser. Held in the fall, this is a fun and easy way for the PTA to kick off the school year and start investing in campus and classroom projects.

The Dragonfire fundraiser allows the PTA to retain 100% of the money raised to support all of the PTA programs for your children. Please consider asking your employer if there is a matching donation program where you work.

Our 2018 goal is $12,000 and our campaign is planned for the week of September 24.

To get the excitement going and have all of our little Dragons included in the fun, we will have a coin war between classrooms. Change will be collected and counted daily with results being announced during the daily WDES broadcasts. The class that brings in the most change will be awarded with “Mr. Burns as teacher for the day!” Mr. Burns will join students as a co-teacher for half of an instructional day. He will participate in class recess, maybe an art project, perhaps a trip to the media center, lunch, etc. — It is up to the class as to how they will spend time with our amazing and hands-on principal.

If we reach our goal, we’ll have a school-wide pajama day!

Flyers are going home in your students’ folders this week. There are a number of ways to donate, including check, cash and these online options:

It’s Dragonfire Time!

We’re about halfway through our 11th annual Dragonfire Fundraiser, and we need your support to finish strong!

Our 2017 goal is to raise $10,000.

Dragonfire is our annual passive fundraiser in which 100% of the donations go directly to the Douglas PTA. In past years, Dragonfire has been responsible for a wide range of campus contributions including:

  • Arts, Science, Math and Literacy Nights
  • Playground Upgrades
  • Classroom Smartboards
  • Classroom Libraries

This year we are planning to invest in:

  • Visiting Artists
  • Field Trip Scholarships
  • Staff Support
  • New Extracurricular Clubs
  • Technology Upgrades

Please encourage your students to participate in the fundraising fun, too. Plastic baggies went home in Monday folders for them to fill with piggy bank and chore change and compete in the Classroom Coin War!

The winning classroom will be awarded a fun day with Mr. Burns!

Does your Dragon want to play soccer with Mr. Burns?  Have lunch outside with Mr. Burns? How about create a class art project with Mr. Burns? Conduct a scientific experiment with Mr. Burns?

Here is their chance! Each classroom will have a collection jar and change will be totaled at the end of Dragonfire. The winning class will be announced on WDES, our student-produced morning TV news show.

Dragonfire information (and registration forms) went home in Monday folders. If you have any questions, please contact our Fundraising VP, Morgan Blue: morgansblue@gmail.com. Thank you for everything you do for our awesome school. Let’s give Dragonfire our all to help make Douglas even more awesome!
