Give to the Denman Pride Fund!

We are falling about a third short of our $30,000 goal for the year. We want to be able to continue funding all the wonderful things that our teachers and admin come up with to enrich our school! Here is how your donations are put to use:

PTSA General Meeting Tuesday February 19 @ 6:00pm

Please join us for a PTSA General meeting. Tuesday Feb. 19th, 6pm, in the library.

Join us for a roundtable discussion about high school readiness and enrollment strategies. 6th and 7th grade parents come and find out what you can be thinking about this semester, 8th grade parents and parents of alum we’d love to have your input on what worked for your child and how to streamline the process. This is meant to be a parent, guardian and (potentially) student discussion rather than a workshop.

Bake Sale @ STEAM Night!

Hello Denman!!
This Wednesday is a Steam Night and we decided to have a Bake Sale fundraiser.
When we did it last year, it was a success.  Let’s do it again!!
Please contribute if you can.   If you love to bake – great; or if you are not a great baker (like me) here are some ideas:
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts were a huge success last year.
Or individually wrapped cookies. If you can contribute Gluten Free cookies, that would be great.
We also want water (small, individual bottles) or Lacroix.
Please look for a table with big letters “Bake Sale“.
Thank you,
Zoya (Samantha) and Sapna (Rema)
7th grade students
