Our school will be taking the Eat The Rainbow Challenge during lunches the week of November 17th (next week!) and we need parent volunteers to help make it a success! Take this opportunity to come spend some time helping your child's class and other classes with the challenge.

Volunteers will keep track of how many fruits and vegetables students try each day on a provided tally sheet. Each day will be a different color and further instructions will be provided. Let's see how many colors of therainbow our students will eat in a week!  The team with the most points will earn an extra recess!

We love our teachers and we love our volunteers.  Better yet, we love to show our appreciation for everything that they do for our children and our school.  Congratulations to Coach Rice on being voted the Teacher of the Month for August and to Kathryn Self on being voted the Volunteer of the Month for all of her hard work and commitment in making the car pool line safe and easy to use!
 
 
Mrs Preas, the Dickinson Librarian, needs volunteers to assist in the library.  Contact Mrs Preas (cpreas@lcisd.org or 832-223-1407) if you are able to assist with the following:
  • Check books in and out, shelve books and help with clerical jobs. 
  • Organize and help implement the book fairs and reading award programs.
  • Make a weekly, yearlong commitment that includes a minimum of a one hour block of time.
You may volunteer during your child’s library time as long as it is not a problem for you or your child.  Your volunteer time is needed to carry out the above responsibilities versus a time to interact with your child or your child’s teacher. 

Please let Mrs Preas know if you are able to volunteer weekly or would prefer to help with special events i.e. book fairs, reading celebrations.  If you are interested in a weekly commitment, email the day and time that you are interested in. Mrs Preas will assess her needs and respond with a Volunteer Schedule.
 
 
The new carpool line procedures came home in your child's folder and they are also available on the Traffic/Car Rider Safety page.

We need 2 parents per day to set up cones at 6:55 am—it takes about 15 minutes—bring your kids and Coach Rice will give them sports dollars!   We need another 2 parents per day at 7:45 am to remove and store cones—takes about 10 minutes.

Contact the Traffic/Car Rider Safety Committee Chair to volunteer your assistance:  Kathryn Self - traffic@dickinsonpto.com
