On behalf of the entire JDBS Community...a Thank You
It is important for everyone to know all of the things that the PTO has done for the students of JDBS over the 2014-2015 school year. A special thanks to the members of the PTO Scott and Tara Valliere, Joe and Niki Mahoney, Paula McDonough and Kim Dickison. The hard work, time and efforts of all of these folks is appreciated beyond measure. Their efforts have enabled many wonderful things to happen at JDBS. Students were able to learn to ski or snow board through scholarships provided by the PTO. Costs of field trips were reduced as PTO helped to cover transportation expenses. Most importantly, the events sponsored by the PTO, the Family Movie Night, the Family Dance Night and the Pancake Breakfast with Easter Egg Hunt help to create an environment where students feel connected to their school. It is this connection that in part enables the students of JDBS to be successful. When students feel connected to their school they experience greater academic success and are more willing to give their very best to learn on a daily basis. For that the faculty and staff is very grateful. Please see the list below to read about all of the initiatives that the PTO has worked on this year.
August - The "Back to School" hot dog barbecue.
November - The Family Movie Night.
December - Mill Fudge Fundraiser, bake sale and silent auction at the Holiday Concert. Also the PTO provided funds for transportation costs for a field trip for students in grades K-3.
January - Provided a scholarship to 6 students (1 per grade) for the Ragged Mountain Ski Program, hosted the Read Under the Stars event.
February - Dance Your Heart Away family night.
March - Pancake breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt.
May - Muffins with Mom. Provided funds to help cover the transportation cost associated with a Museum of Science field trip for students in grade 4-6. Lastly, members of the PTO worked very hard to install a stone wall and landscaping around the school sign.
June - Dessert with Dad.
This year the PTO also established a JDBS PTO Facebook page, a JDBS PTO email account, enacted new fundraisers such as the Planet Aid donation bin and the Yankee Candle fundraiser. Again, on behalf of the JDBS school community please know that we thank you for your hard work and dedication to all of the students of JDBS.
PTO is collecting UPC labels, cell phones and ink cartridges as a fundraiser. Please bring in empty ink cartridges and unused cell phones. There is a collection box for these items in the lobby of the school.
