Good Evening students and parents,
This is Lauryn Duncan, Principal at Douglass Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.

Parents, if you have a rising kindergartener please join us this Tuesday, March 21 at Douglass Elementary beginning at 6:00 pm for a kindergarten 101 session. Mrs. June Nealy will present important information to parents of rising kindergarteners. Please remember that your child must turn 5 on or before August 31.
Also, mark your calendars, kindergarten registration will begin April 17. Douglass Elementary will host a kindergarten registration event on April 17 from 3:00-6:00 pm and on May 4 from 8:00-6:00 pm. More information about kindergarten registration here at Douglass will be sent out at a later date.
A sneak peek of our 2022-2023 Douglass Yearbook Cover has been posted on Dojo. In-person sales for yearbooks have started. Information has been sent home with your child. Orders and payments are due by Friday, March 31. Each yearbook is $20.
Parents Thursday, March 23 is an early release day. Students will be dismissed at 12:45 pm. If your child is a car rider please be sure their ride is here at 12:45 pm.. Also, Friday, March 24 is a teacher workday. There will be no school for students on Friday, March 24.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone that participated in our candy bar fundraiser in September. Thank you to everyone who has turned in any outstanding candy money. We still have not received payment for 25 boxes of chocolate which means we still have a $1,510 outstanding balance. That’s a considerable amount of money that we could really use to support our students and their learning. If you have not turned in your candy money, please do that this week.
We hope you enjoy the rest of your evening and we look forward to seeing you bright and early tomorrow morning.
