DragonFire 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.
We’ll be sharing exciting information about our spring fundraiser soon!
Online Silent Auction
Each spring, the PTA hosts an online silent auction fundraiser. But this is no ordinary auction. Every single item up for bid is PRICELESS.
Douglas’ amazing teachers and staff donate one-of-a-kind experiences for you to bid on for your children, from tea in the garden to a guitar lesson to a movie outing. Also up for grabs every year? The coveted “Noble Family of Carpool” front-of-the-line pass AND front-row seats to graduation! You’ll also have the chance to bid on gift cards, goodies and unique events from local businesses.
Money raised through the silent auction goes directly back to the school to fund projects sponsored by the PTA to enrich our children’s educational opportunities.
Scholastic Book Fair
The Douglas PTA partners with Scholastic to host our book fairs. Our spring book fair allows students time to browse with their classes and make wish lists for parents. After class preview days, we invite families to shop together during our sales days.
To make sure that EVERY student at Douglas gets a new book, we also support All For Books. Donations are collected all week and books are purchased for any Dragon who otherwise cannot afford to shop at the fair.
The book fair takes a lot of heavy lifting and is a great opportunity for parents to spend a bit of time on campus helping support the cause. Help is needed setting up the fair, helping students make wish lists, running registers during sales days and breaking down the fair at the end of the week. Please consider spending your lunch break or even a few morning hours in the Media Center during these FUN weeks. The book fair is a student favorite and encourages literacy and lifelong reading!
