DASH OF THE TITANS--OCTOBER 23! DASH of the Titans is October 23rd!

The "DASH" is an action packed, fun-filled obstacle course that students will run during their P.E. period on October 23rd!

Students brought home DASH of the Titans sponsor letter and form this past Friday. (Click on the title above to download a copy if you need another one.) It's a green, double-sided piece of paper with an envelope attached to it. PLEASE read this with your student! This is your opportunity to ask family, friends and neighbors to sponsor your child for each lap they complete or they can donate a flat fee for all the laps your child completes. ALL the money raised goes back tto the school to enrich each students school experience. In fact, each student will get to decide what core, clubs and/or electives their money will benefit!

There are GREAT incentives for studnets to turn in their form and donations as quickly as possible AFTER the DASH. The first 50 students in each grade to turn in their form with donations of $100 or more will win a LIMO LUNCH RIDE TO IN AND OUT WITH DR. DALTON AND MRS. FARISS! Students who turn in $50 or more will be entered to win one of 20 iTunes and Starbucks gift cards!

Come on out and watch your child as they run this fun-filled obstacle course. If you donated to the Annual Fund at any of the levels, two entrance passes were included with your donation. Volunteers AT THE CONCORD GATE will have your name on a list for free entrance to the DASH. All others spectators will be asked to donate $2 for entrance.

Reflections -- “The world would be a better place if…”

Reflections -- “The world would be a better place if…” Reflections is a nation-wide arts appreciation and recognition program for students sponsored by National PTA. Since 1969, over 10 million students across the nation have taken part in this popular PTA program.

To take part, student Reflections' entries at a school are first recognized, judged and celebrated by the local PTA unit. Some selected unit entries are then chosen to represent the PTA at the council and district PTA levels and finalists from there will go on to compete at state and national levels.
