Weekend Challenge--Dolphin Dash Fun Run

Parents, thank you all so much for supporting this year’s Dolphin Dash. If you haven’t registered your student yet, you can do so this weekend on funrun.com by searching for our school or using our school’s registration code: 548-547.

This weekend we have a special challenge where students can receive an additional reward for NEW pledges. You can learn more on funrun.com.

Proceeds from this event will go to support three PTA projects:

  • Field Trips for Every Student--Our goal is to fully fund at least one field trip per year for each grade level so that every student can attend. Past trips include the Coterie Theater, Alldredge Apple Orchard, the World War I museum, Kaleidoscope, Royals Stadium, and Missouri Town 1855.
  • Cultural Arts Events--An author-in-residence spends a week each year working with our third graders on developing their writing and storytelling skills. We also sponsor special programs like a ballet troupe that performs selections from the Nutcracker right here at Doniphan and hosts workshops for students to learn more about dance and creative movement.
  • School Improvement Grants--This is a new program inspired by last year's 4th grade classes, who designed and submitted proposals for an improved recess equipment storage system. Students will work together with their classmates to identify areas they would like to see improvements in our school and create a plan for making the changes happen. The PTA then works with students and teachers to implement the plan.

As you can see, your contributions make a big difference to our students and staff. Thank you again for supporting our school!
