News from PTA, October, 2021

Welcome to the newest addition to our school’s website. Under the PTA tab, you will find flyers we have sent home and PTA Updates. This is our first post. Our membership drive ended on October 25 but it is not too late to become a member. Join DBFE PTA online at our PTA store or submit the form and money to the security guard at the front of the school. We currently have over 100 members. DBFE hosted their first general meeting of the year and volunteer orientation on October 27. We had a great turnout. Thank you to all who attended. We updated the participants on our PTA requirements; Audit was completed in the summer, insurance has been purchased, taxes have been done, and membership dues are up-to date. This year’s proposed budget was approved at the meeting and we discussed our upcoming activities; Gratitude Grams, McDonald’s night, an author visit, Fall Dance and our Holiday store. If you are interested in volunteering at our school or want more information, you can contact Ms. Laura Calenzani, Community Involvement Specialist, at extension, 2014 or Ms. Andrade, PTA Vice President of Volunteers, at extension 2027. The PTA is looking forward to a SLAM DUNK school year! Until next time, Your PTA President

News from PTA, November, 2021

This time of year reminds us to stop for a moment and take the time to be thankful for all the wonderful things in our lives. We appreciate the children and parents of DBFE and the support you give us. McDonald’s night was a huge success and because of all of you who attended, our school received $467.45. We have a few upcoming events. Your child can show their gratitude for teachers, parents and friends by sending a gratitude gram until November 17. The gratitude grams will be delivered November 19. We will also have a Fall Dance on November 19. Flyers went home for both of these events. Dante B. Fascell is grateful for you and wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving/November.

News from PTA, December, 2021

It is amazing that another year has gone by. In less than a month, we will be ringing in the new year, 2022. I would like to end this year stating how blessed I am to work with dedicated individuals who put the children at DBFE first. Thank you to the PTA board, the volunteers that have helped us and the teachers, staff and administration who support the PTA and the students of Dante B. Fascell Elementary, on a daily basis. The collaboration of all of these wonderful individuals have made it possible for us to provide the activities we have been able to, our most recent one being the holiday store. The students were eager to go shopping for their loved ones and overjoyed with the various gifts they purchased. Thank you parents for supporting the store and your child’s school. This activity could not have been successful without you. We wish you all a wonderful holiday season, surrounded by your family and friends, and filled with love, joy and happiness.
