Support the DGH’s Parent Council’s Goal of Purchasing a Hydration Station!

posted in: Home Page News | 0

DGH’s Parent Council is running its final fundraiser for the 2014-2015 school year – the popular and successful Little Caesars Pizza Fundraiser.  The Parent Council again chose the pizza fundraiser as it is extremely practical (many families love pizza and the Little Caesars product is reasonably priced and of a high quality).

 

This Parent Council Fundraiser has an extremely clear and worthwhile purpose – to purchase a “Hydration Station” for the school.

 

Order forms should have already gone home with your son or daughter.  If they have not, please contact the school office at 705-786-1915.  Order forms and money are due into the office on Thursday, June 11th. 

 

You may have seen a “Hydration Station” at an arena or a high school.  Hydration stations are a step up from a school’s traditional water fountain.  You can easily fill a water bottle in a few seconds; unlike the eternity it seems to take to fill a water bottle in water fountain.  The water bottle is placed upright in the hydration station, you push a button and the water bottle is filled.

 

Our school’s reasoning is that students will drink more water (and more often use refillable water bottles) if it is more convenient to do so.

 

If enough money is raised from this Little Caesar’s Pizza Fundraise, the hydration station will be purchased and installed at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year.  If not enough money is raised in this fundraiser, additional monies from fundraisers next year will be used, as well.

 

The DGH Parent Council thanks you for your support of its school initiatives.
