Mmmmmmmm . . . Cookie Dough!
The annual DPM Cookie Dough Fundraiser is here. The PTA is asking that all students and their families help support DPM by selling Fat Cat Cookie Dough and Scone Dough: a perfect gift or treat for holiday entertaining! 45% of each purchase supports all the wonderful programs sponsored by the PTA throughout the year (such as technology, computers, field trips, buses, classroom activities, school events like the Carnival, etc). If every student sells only two units… the school gets over $8,000!
The Details: Checks payable to “DPM PTA”
Sales Start: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2nd
Sales End: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 13th
Pick Up: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13th Pick Ups from 1:15pm to 6:00pm
All dough MUST be picked up on 12/13/18 (an Early Day) because we have NO freezer storage space!

Sly Park Parent Information Night-6th Grade
Any and ALL Parents or Guardians of 6th grade students who are attending Sly Park. This information night will be held on Wednesday, December 5th, starting promptly at 6pm and ending at 7pm in Mrs. Myrstol’s classroom (rm 17) . We ask that students do not attend as teachers will be giving an overview of what to expect and all mandatory forms that will be needed.
Yearbook Volunteer Needed
We are looking for a volunteer to coordinate the DPM yearbook. The volunteer would work with Lifetouch and the DPM teachers to collect photos. Lifetouch provides support and the program needed to assemble the yearbook pages. If you are interested, please contact the school office.
Lost and Found
The lost and found bin is starting to fill up with student jackets and lunch boxes. If your child is missing any items, please take a look. All items remaining in the lost and found bin over winter break in December will be donated. The lost and found bin is cleaned out twice a year (Winter Break in December and June after the last day of school).
The office is in need of a few clothing items for students who require a change of clothes during the school day. We could use boys underwear sizes 5-7 (for underwear new only please), and boys and girls elastic waist pants sizes 5-10 (no jeans, please), and a few tee-shirts boys and girls sizes 5-10. The clothing items can be previously worn.
Open Enrollment applications for the 2019/20 school year will be accepted from December 3 to January 18.Del Paso Manor Mustangs
