Great Ways to Help Your School

Are you wondering how you can participate in the Davisville-MTSD school community? We have some great ideas for you:

Pizza Lunch Coordinator: We’ve had really well-run pizza lunch program for the past few years (thanks Kimberly!) and we need someone to take it over this year. Here’s what’s involved: sending out order forms, creating class lists, ordering pizza, and coordinating volunteers to serve the pizza. This is a substantial fundraiser for us, the kids enjoy it, and parents appreciate not having to pack a lunch on those days. Sound like fun? We encourage you to step forward to take this on.

QSP Magazine Fundraiser: The parent running this (thank you Sherry!) may be in her last year at Davisville and needs someone who can help this year and carry this on next year. The work on this is concentrated on a two week period in October, where you’ll need to spend an hour or two in the school every day for those two weeks to gather and record orders, and hand out prizes. You will also be the contact for our QSP representative. This year our campaign begins on Tuesday, October 4th, and ends on Tuesday, October 18th. This is a big fundraiser for us, and one we’d like to be able to continue.

Scholastic Book Orders: This is a great way to get more books in our kids’ hands at a great price while helping the school. Our current coordinator (thanks Monique!) needs some help and she may be returning to work full-time. We need someone to learn the process now and be ready to take over if need be. This job entails overseeing the distribution of order catalogues, collecting orders, and distributing books.

Looking for more ideas: our school council elections and the first council meeting of this school year take place on Tuesday, September 27. School council coordinates many events and programs within the school and provides a helpful forum for communication between parents and school staff.

A parent self-nomination form was sent home with all students last Friday, September 9. You can download a copy here as well.

If you have any questions about any of these positions, please get in touch!

Parent involvement makes for a great school community. Join the many other parents already helping to make this school year a great one for all of us!
