Hello Mountain Shadows Coyotes!  
 

Hello everyone,


Can you believe it's already October?! Two of our favorite events are in October; Membership Dinner and Trunk-or-Treat!

The Box Tops deadline is this Wednesday! Please turn in your box tops with your students name and teacher on the flyer or baggie. Also, please look them over to make sure they aren't expired. Then the real fun begins, counting them (haha)!

This Thursday is Conversations with Curt, 12:00-1:00 in the Media Center. Join us and meet Dr. Curtis Finch, DVUSD Superintendent.

This Friday is an early release, so that means Rita's Ice will be sold during recess and after school. Please be sure that if you or your child is purchasing Rita's after school that you park and wait in line with your child. No students will be allowed to purchase if there is a parent waiting in the pick up line.

Great job Student Council! They helped raise $473 for the Hurricane Harvey fundraiser! Those funds have been used to purchase 60 school supply kits for Texas students. Thank you all for your support!

We all have heard of the devastation in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands from the recent hurricanes. National PTA has sent our information to donate to the Disaster Relief Fund, which was established to respond to tragedies that disrupt a school or education systems. Both Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have a PTA unit. 100% of donations to this fund will go directly to PTAs and schools in need that will help provide supplies for their students and teachers.

Did you know that our annual Fun Run fundraiser is organized and comprised of 100% volunteers? The PTSA doesn't hire a company to run this event. Our goal was to keep everything "in house" so that our school would keep 100% of the profit. Every year we challenge ourselves to make it better, from prizes, to getting t-shirts paid for, and the actual event. To do this, we need your help! We are looking for business sponsors to help cover the cost of the t-shirts and prizes. If you own your own business, work for a business, or know of a business that would be interested in getting their logo on 500 shirts, please email us! We are attaching our form below that has more info. If you have suggestions on businesses that you think we should contact, let us know!
