Upcoming Events



    Exciting news! After missing out last year on one of their favorite events, our kids will be able to participate in person in the Jog-A-Thon this year. The event will be held at school on November 1st or 2nd (depending on your child’s grade level). Not only is this a fun event, but one of our best fundraisers. Without the money raised, we couldn’t provide many of our important learning opportunities and fun events.
    This year, we will be using 99 Pledges, an online donation platform where kids can set up their own donation tracking page. This will make it easy to send friends and family their information as well as track their progress. It's easy to create a page for your child, just go to this link and fill out a very short form:
    To donate without selecting a child or to track classroom project, you can go to this link:
    As always, if you are having any issues or questions, please email us at dcdk8pto@gmail.com.
