Offering Support During Hardship

The ongoing shutdown of the federal government has caused financial hardship for too many of our friends and neighbors. Additionally, we know that students are experiencing anxiety and fear for their family's financial situation. I wanted to let you know of a few supports that are in place to help at this time.

Read-A-Thon is Coming!

Our Read-A-Thon fundraiser is kicking off soon! Our students can log the number of minutes that they are reading and earn money for our school. All they need to do is create an online "Owlvatar" and start reading! Parents can invite friends and family to sponsor them. The more students read, the more money Ducketts Lane earns! More specific information as well as usernames and passwords will be arriving in your children's upcoming Thursday folders. Any questions about the specifics of the program should be directed to Jamie Auvil at jmg8533@yahoo.com.
