Davidsen PTSA Announces October Fundraisers

Davidsen’s PTSA has a busy October featuring multiple fundraisers and programs.

The Fall Box Tops for Education Drive will begin Oct. 2 and continue through Oct. 20. This national program, sponsored by General Mills, supports education by donating 10 cents back to schools for every box top redeemed. Last year Davidsen Middle School raised over $900 to support programs, events and capital improvements. Our goal this year is to surpass $1,000. Please take the time to clip Box Tops and don’t forget to look for eBoxTops and Bonus Box Tops. Ask your neighbors and relatives to collect for us too!

Send all of your Box Tops to school in a baggie or attach them to a collection sheet and label them with your child’s name and homeroom teacher’s name. This fall we will have three weekly drawings for students and staff; the student and staff member who submit the most Box Tops will receive a $25 gift card. Questions? Contact kathycure@outlook.com.

Don’t bother cooking lunch or dinner on Oct. 21! Instead, join us for DMS Spirit Day at Burger 21 in West Park Village. A portion of sales will be donated back to our school.

Reflections projects are due Oct. 23. Reflections is a national program to encourage artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. This year’s theme is: Within Reach. Students may choose to enter a project in one of six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography or visual arts. All DMS entrants who participate will be invited to special reception. Questions? Contact laura@paulkohler.com.

Beginning Oct. 23, Davidsen Middle School will also participate in the National Red Ribbon Campaign, a week-long drug awareness campaign organized by the National Family Partnership. Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon Campaign has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction cause by drugs in America. Each day throughout the campaign, students will receive a reminder of this important message.

Krispy Kreme doughnuts will be on sale Oct. 27 for $10 a box. Proceeds will benefit Eighth Grade events.
