Donnell Middle School Announcement

-Spring Picture Day has been rescheduled for April 3rd.   If you would like to volunteer to help out that morning, please contact Meagan Brown at mbrown at fcs.org<mailto:mbrown at fcs.org>.  We need at least three volunteers to help with students in the gym.  Spring pictures and the panoramic picture will be taken this day.

-Autism Awareness:
April is Autism Awareness Month and the District Autism Team is raising money for sensory kits being to be placed in each building. There are 3 ways to participate: purchase a tumbler, purchase a shirt/sweatshirt or make a cash donation.
You will find two flyers attached that detail the items available for purchase. There are several options for shirts including one design that doesn't say "Findlay City Schools" so that members of the community can participate, also. The tumblers are available in a few different designs, too. All items will be delivered to our school in time for April.
How do I participate?

  2.  Tumblers: See me or respond via email that you would like one, bring in $20 by March 20th (Cash or checks payable to Findlay City Schools)
  3.  Donate Cash: See me or put it in my mailbox with your name

-Donnell Yearbooks are on sale now. Order online, or bring cash or check to Mrs. Moore in the main office. 80 color pages - that's 4 more pages than last year. Yearbooks are available in soft-cover for $20. and hardcover for $25. The deadline for orders is April 1st, so don't miss out!

Washington DC Participants:  Fundraisers are still going on. We are selling chocolate bars until March 27th and next we will be selling cookie dough which will begin on March 28th.  Fundraiser totals will be sent over to Prodigy Student Travel once all of them are done. If you are close to being paid up for the trip and know that your fundraiser totals are going to be enough to cover the remainder...there is no need to worry about making more payments to Prodigy.  Once all the totals are in, if you have overpaid by less than $50, you will be issued the money back.  If you overpaid by more than $50, there will be a credit issued back in the same method of payment you have paid for the trip.  (if you paid by credit card, they will credit back that card. If you paid by check, you will get a check).  If your student is on waitlist, Prodigy will not know who is moving up until all the fundraisers are done and final payments are tallied. This will not happen until about mid-April.  Hopefully this answers the questions you may have.

Building Reminders:
Students/Parents: Gum is not allowed in the building and students chewing gum will be disciplined.  Please remember if you are chewing gum on the way to school to dispose of it in a trash can before entering the building.  We want to ensure our school remains beautiful inside and out. Students also please be respectful of our neighbors by not littering on their lawns or picking their flowers on the way home from school.

Parents - please do not pick up or drop off any car riders on Baldwin Avenue.  All car riders should be dropped off and picked up on Lime Street.  It is very dangerous having students run across the street in front of buses.  Our students' safety is our top priority - please use Lime Street. Doors open in the morning at 7:20 a.m. and students are expected to be out of the bldg. and picked up by 2:45 p.m. each day.
