PTAB NEWS
    Our 2019 Hop-A-Thon will be held the week of May 6th. 2019 Hop-a-thon Ballots will be sent home via email on March 22nd. Please return your ballots by April 7th. You can pick three charities for the Hop-a-thon to support. If you have a charity that you would like to include, email Kevin the name of the charity you would like added to the ballot by March 14th.
            How it works: 2019 Hop-A-Thon pledge sheets will be sent home with the May Newsletters.
During the week of May 6th, each child tries to hop as many times as possible in two minutes. We ask you to obtain pledges for each hop performed by your child. BEWARE, some older children can hop over 200 times in two minutes! Warn people that $.01 to $.05 /hop are generous pledges. If a child's hops exceed the amount that a person wishes to donate, assure the donor that any pledge is acceptable and appreciated. 100% of all the money collected is given to the chosen charities.
            We will send home a paper listing the number of hops performed by your child during the week of May 6th. Please return all pledges by May 24th. Over the past twenty-three years, Dolly’s has raised over $74,000.00 for a variety of charities and causes. We will hand out checks at our graduation ceremony on June 8th.
Our monthly PTAB meeting will be on Wednesday, March 13th from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at school.
The PTAB is planning a movie day on Saturday, March 30th to see “Dumbo”. Details TBA.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!
