International Dot Day
It’s official! We are going to create the most amazing human dot outside 
on September 15th with our friends at Darby Creek to celebrate International Dot Day! 
We are asking students to wear the following colored T-shirts on September 15th.
1st Grade – Yellow
2nd Grade – Orange
3rd Grade – Red
4th Grade – Green
5th Grade – Blue
The T-shirts can be any shade of their color. 
Thank you parents for helping your child to remember to wear their grade level color. 
Dot Day is about “leaving your mark on the world”, and we are going to do just that. 
We have been reading “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds, who created Dot Day and who asks us to “Imagine the power and potential of a million people all around the world connecting, collaborating, creating and celebrating all that creativity inspires and invites.”

Mumkin Sales

The ADE PTO would like to remind you and your family of the ongoing Mumkin Fundraiser.

Each student was given a sales brochure during the last week of August that explained this sale which includes Mumkins and mum replacements  ranging from $10-$25.

If each student could sell at least 5 items, this will be a phenomenal fundraiser for our school.  Some ideas of places to sell include neighbors, friends, family…you can even post it on Facebook.

The students look forward to the prizes they can earn, and we appreciate everyone’s contribution to this fundraiser.

Who can sell 30 and get in the money machine?  Who will sell at least 15 and get an invite to the lunch tailgate party?  The more we sell, the more prizes earned $$$$$.

Use this last weekend to set a goal and sell to your goal before turning in your money and order form on Monday, Sept 8!
