turkey-notTurkey Tally for Harvest Moon Supper – Earn FREE Raffle Tickets!

Turkey Tally = Need 9

Purchased, Thank you very much! = 7

The Harvest Moon Supper is November 8th and we need TURKEYS!  16, to be exact.  So we’re starting a TURKEY TALLY to count down the number of turkeys we need for the delicious feast and the PTO’s best fundraiser of the year.  For every turkey donated, we’ll give 10 FREE Raffle Tickets towards beautiful themed baskets that each class contributes to and the PTO puts together.  We’ve had craft baskets, sundae baskets, divine chocolate baskets, baskets filled with reading books, Italian night baskets, and just to name a few!

There are two ways you can donate turkey and get 10 FREE Raffle Tickets:
(1)  Donate money towards a turkey via our webstore, or
(2)  Pick up the real deal (14-15 lbs.) and contact the PTO via email to make drop-off arrangements.

Thank you for your support!!  Gobble, gobble!


4754794_GImportant Notice about Enterovirus-D68

From Mrs. Hast, DES School Nurse:  A notice titled, “Enterovirus-D68 Information for Parents” went home each child last week from the NH Dept. of Health and Human Services.  It discusses symptoms, how to prevent the spread of the virus, and suggestions for what to do when your child is ill.  If you have any questions, please email vhast@dunbarton.k12.nh.us.


12248-blue-eagle-design“The Eagles Nest” DES School Store Now Open!

The Eagle’s Nest will be open every Friday during the student’s snack time. The PTO runs this little shop as a way to teach the children about the denominations of currency and basic math skills, as well as the value of shopping wisely. We tell them that there is no “shopping on credit” but they are allowed to put an item on “layaway” for one week. Nothing we sell is edible, and the items run from 5¢ to $2.  The PTO doesn’t make any profit from the store but we all agree that it is an invaluable tool for helping kids learn about everything from the difference between a nickel and a quarter to how to save for something you really want.

If your child (or you) would like to donate any home-crafted items to the store, we will gladly take them. And if you are interested in volunteering an occasional morning to help sell, email dunbartonpto@gmail.com.  The hours are 9:00 until 10:15-ish.
