UPDATE: Box Tops Collection
Thank you again to all who submitted Box Tops for our Fall Collection. Thanks to your contributions, we raised just over $1000 in this collection which goes to the Davidson Elementary PTO Tiger Fund! The class that submitted the most was Mrs. Underhill's 4th grade class, with 877 Box Tops! They will earn a Popsicle Party, which will be coordinated with Mrs. Underhill.
Please keep clipping your Box Tops as there will be one more collection in the New Year.

Calling all bakers who want to show the DES staff how much we appreciate them this holiday season! We need a lot of volunteers to help treat our staff to homemade cookies to take home.

Please spend a little time help make this annual tradition a great success!

Together in Education - Link Your Harris Teeter Vic Card
Thank you to all of the families who said yes to the PTO linking their Harris Teeter VIC cards to Davidson Elementary. We were able to link over 175 VIC cards based on the information collected! There are a handful that we were not able to link due to a missing phone number or a wrong last name....so please be sure to check your Harris Teeter receipt to see if your VIC card is linked at this time! (See picture to know whether yours is linked or not!).
If you shop at Harris Teeter and your VIC card is NOT currently linked to Davidson Elementary, please consider having yours linked! It is as easy as asking the cashier to link your VIC card to school 3377. Or you could go to the Harris Teeter website and link yours there as well.
We currently have 222 families linked to Davidson Elementary! This is already more than last year, so thank you for considering linking your card to DES (Harris Teeter Together in Education (TIE) 3377.
