• pack a lunch with lots of food

• bring lots of water or a reuseable water bottle

If your households are anything like mine (it is Mr. Parish writing this post), then pizza is one of the more popular meals each week.  Little Caesars is definitely one of the more popular pizza choices, too!


All of this is great news because the DGH Parent Council has launched its next fundraiser – the Little Caesars Summer Stock Up!  Click here to view the information brochure that was sent home with students earlier this week.


Profits from the fundraiser will go into “general” Parent Council fundraising.  Funds have been used in the past, to purchase technology (e.g., SmartBoards and data projectors), uniforms and items such as the large tent used for outdoor sporting events.  As always, all profits are used to support students in the ways noted.


Key Dates:

Kick-Off – Tuesday, May 8th

Order Envelopes and $ Due back into school – Wednesday, May 23rd

Delivery Date – Tuesday, June 5th from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
