Photo day is next week! Which leads us to two reminders:
Do you remember the photo order form you got in your Back to School Packet? You can fill that out, include payment and send in with your child to hand to the photographers when it is his/her turn OR even easier – just order photos online! Head over to heslinphoto.inter-state.com and use the order code 18702JA to order photos of your children.
How would you like your child to have perfect hair in their photos? You can make this happen by signing up to volunteer. Volunteers hand out (one-time use, disposable) combs and help manage the flow of kids. We still have room for more volunteers on both 9/14 and 9/15!
Some of you may have already experienced how the PTA is making an impact in our community… whether you attended a Kinder or New Family Playdate, Packet Pick Up or the First Day Opening Ceremony. One of the key tenets of our PTA is community building, and we have several more exciting events and programs planned throughout the school year where you can participate, volunteer and help build a stronger community.
The Duveneck PTA also works diligently to fundraise for our school, and we rely on your generous donations. A big part of our fundraising efforts is the Direct Ask contribution. There’s still time to donate (or donate again) online or through our Single Check Order Form. Any amount is always appreciated and will go along way in supporting your child’s education and our community.
On Friday September 8, students will show their school spirit by wearing a hat or by styling their hair in a crazy way!
Participation is completely optional, but students often enjoy the chance to be silly together. If your student prefers not to wear a hat or crazy hair, everyone is welcome to wear our school spirit colors of blue and white. Thank you for supporting our school!
The Harvest Carnival is a long standing Duveneck community tradition. Duveneck is transformed into a carnival filled with games, prizes, a Booveneck House, baked goods, food and MORE! It is a fun-filled event for everyone (Duveneck staff, family, friends, neighbors)… so please invite others to join you! And don’t forget to mark it on your calendar – Saturday, October 21st, 12pm-3pm (or use the PTA Calendar). Your kids will not want your family to miss this!
We are parents and teachers who support Duveneck Elementary School in Palo Alto, CA. As a community, we help create the school we want our children to have by providing funding for school equipment and materials, hosting community events, and providing enrichment programs for parents, teachers and students.
