Food and Toy Drive
As we’ve done in the past, we will begin collecting donations for our annual Food and Toy Drive. This year we will be sending our donations to “Feed the Need Durham”, a great organization where we have some parents who are active volunteers. “Feed the Need Durham” provides food to over 51 member agencies and emergency food providers (food banks, soup kitchens, shelters, etc) throughout Durham. Beginning Monday, December 2nd, students are asked to bring in food and/or toys. We will be sorting the donations by tribe and awarding points to the tribe with the greatest contribution. Items that are needed the most are: Boxed stuffing, granola bars, canned vegetables, Kraft Dinner, fruit cups, pudding cups, canned pasta, canned meats and crackers. Let’s make a difference this holiday season and reach out to help those in need. At David Bouchard Public School, we care!
Holiday Concert & Bake Sale
Our Holiday Concert will take place on Wednesday, December 18th starting at 6 pm. We hope you can join us for a festive evening filled with music, good cheer and the holiday spirit. Our band will play and our students will sing for you. Our wonderful School Community Council is in the process of organizing a Bake Sale fundraiser for that evening, so bring your change and enjoy some festive goodies! We will also be holding a raffle for a free turkey, but the person holding the winning ticket will have to stay to the end of the concert to claim the prize : )
Our Breakfast Program is now up and running. All of our students have the opportunity to eat breakfast as they enter the classroom in the morning. Breakfast choices include granola bars, bagels, yogurt and some type of fruit. Thank you so much to Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Starr as well as our great parent volunteers who work so hard to make our Breakfast Program a success!
The grandparents of our intermediate students are invited to come out for a special Tea on Monday, December 16th from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. This event will be in our gymnasium. Come on out and hear our wonderful band perform. Our intermediate students are excited to be your waiters and waitresses so that you can enjoy some tea and goodies as you listen to some wonderful festive music.
