Over 250 families have joined the PTO since the start of the school year, raising over $15 000 for our school! Ms Hopkins class was the first to 100% membership and was treated to an ice cream social with Dr Mumphord and Sue the Dolphin. Ms Dickson and Ms Kimpler's classes also reached 100% and all their students will receive a free home work pass. As the grade with the highest membership, all students in 2nd grade will be awarded their very own elite free dress day. Click through to Membership for full details.
The Healthy Lifestyles Committee has been hard at work to implement initiatives to encourage our children to lead a healthy life. Check out the Healthy Lifestyles page for full details.

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 (email@example.com or 832-223-1407) if you are able to assist with the following:
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.
