Is Your Child Too Sick for School??

posted Mar 22, 2017, 11:32 AM by Tami Williams   [ updated Mar 22, 2017, 11:43 AM ]

Please remember, after any illness we require children to be fever free for 24 hours (without fever reducing type medications ex: Tylenol or Motrin) before returning to school. With one local school system closing due to Influenza and Streptococcus sickness please take a minute to read this article. It can help you decide if your child is well enough for school.

PTO News!

Our next PTO meeting will be held Tuesday, March 7th at 6:00PM in the media center. The Art Show will be held the same night. So, come see your kid's art work and attend the PTO meeting!

We are coming up on the end of the school year and there is much to talk about.

We just wrapped up Candy Grams February 14th and went right into planning the Spring Carnival for March 30th. After Spring Carnival, we will be working on Teacher Appreciation (May 1-5).

I am very proud of the amount of money PTO has been able to raise at this point. I'm sure as parents, you are all wondering, "where is all the money going?"....to the bank!
After every event, a PTO officer, or two, counts down the money box(es). That amount is then confirmed by the front office and sent in for deposit. The goal this year is for PTO to be able to fulfill some of the annual educational and/or campus needs for students at Dewar. We are just into our second year of having a PTO at Dewar and are hoping it will continue to grow in order to better serve our school. Several needs have been given to us by faculty and staff and will be presented at the April meeting, if not sooner.

We have PTO Fund Requests to vote on.

We will be taking nominations for PTO officers for the 2017-2018 school year. If you are interested in becoming an officer, please contact us or let us know at the meeting. We will take nominations for all offices: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.

As you can see, there is a lot going on this Spring. If you haven't had the opportunity to volunteer this school year, please take a close look at these upcoming dates and make plans to help out.

Thank you and we hope to see you at the meeting!
