ASB Spirit Day Dec. 17th - Pajama Day & Ice Block Racing

Join the fun and show your school spirit on Tuesday, Dec. 17th by wearing your favorite pajamas to school. The more comfy the better! Students can participate in our Ice Block race on the upper field during lunch! Thank you Dana ASB for putting this together? Thank you to the parents who bought cookie dough - your support is what helps us make these types of events possible! NOTE: Pajama Day was originally scheduled for 12/7 but postponed due to rain.

Let’s Get Up & Move: Dana Jogathon Is Back! 

ATTENTION MARINERS: It's time to get up and move! Dana's Annual Jog-a-Thon Returns 1/27/2022 and we NEED YOUR HELP! This year we would love to bring back the spirit of community and make this event as collaborative and energetic as possible! We’re looking for:

1. Community partners who'd like to advertise their business and support our students by hosting an activity session at this year's jog-a-thon!

2. Parents/aunts/uncles/cousins/friends/pets (ok not your pets): any human who is able to volunteer their time and patience to make sure this event is a success for our students!

Please consider sharing your time and talents by helping to make this the best jog-a-thon yet! Click on the link to sign-up! - Jog A Thon Volunteer Form

Supporting Veterans with Young and Elementary School Age Children Dec. 15th

The Military Child Education Coalition is offering an excellent webinar entitled Supporting Veterans with Young and Elementary School Age Children.  This webinar focuses on Young children that may have difficulty understanding the changes when a parent leaves the military. This is an opportunity to learn about how to reduce the stress children experience during a family’s transition out of the service. The webinar will be held on December 15 at 9am and I am attaching the information along with the registration link. This is a great professional development opportunity that will assist with dealing with military children. As always please feel reach out to me with any questions and concerns. Register here for Supporting Veterans with Young and Elementary School Age Children:

FODaC Really Needs Your Support!

"Giving Tuesday" is rapidly approaching and we wanted to try and rally more support for Friends of Dana and Correia (FODaC) Association.  Our goal is to raise $30,000 this year and so far we are woefully short of that with only three donations totalling $700. The parents of Dana and Correia can do better than that! Your support provides grants for teachers, pays for after school Homework Club for students, and supports ASB activities. Anything you can do to help support our schools is appreciated.  We do not have a parent volunteer to run this campaign so our President  been doing what she can with very limited time and resources... We can use the help obviously :-) Thank You!
