Cookies and Cocoa Night

Volunteers Needed at Dye Elementary

The last few months of the school year hold many challenges for the teachers and staff responsible for all of the fun end-of-year activities we do! The color run, the track meet, field day; these are some of the special things our students will always remember.

We need help from our parents and grandparents!

There will be a sign up sheet in the office starting April 19th for anyone that has a few hours to help with one of the above mentioned days.

It could be as easy as handing out popsicles, helping to supervise a three-legged race, or just helping to tie a little ones shoes!

Please be a part of our extended Dye Family!
