The 6th grade funds will be used toward Outdoor School, 7th grade funds will be used toward next year's Washington DC trip and it will be the last chance for 8th graders going this year to earn money. It will run through April 6th  Due to time issues it is imperative that all orders be turned in on or before April 6th.

-We are looking for parent volunteers to work at the concession stand for track meets.  The money raised for concessions goes back to the students and teachers at Donnell Middle School and provides a great service to the teams and spectators to be able to get something to eat and drink.  Please sign up! See link below.

-We are looking for  individuals to help with the track meet next week  on Wednesday, April 5th.
Field events report at 4:45 and will be finished easily by 6:30 pm.
Running events report at 5:00 and will be finished by 7 pm.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.  Please email Kate Winger (kwinger at fcs.org<mailto:kwinger at fcs.org>) if you will be available to help with the track meet.

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.
