DAVENPORT RIDGE WEEKLY PTO UPDATE 12/5/16

WISH UPON A STAR!

Be a Star to a Child for the Holidays! This year Davenport is proud again, to be sponsoring the WISH UPON A STAR PROGRAM!

A list of eligible Davenport students is compiled for which each child is assigned a number that will appear on a “Star Bag.” The box of Star Bags can be found inside the main office.  Just choose a Star Bag, sign the list and buy a gift certificate for no more than $25.

Suggested retailers: Old Navy, Toys R Us, Target, etc.  All Star Bags and gift certificates must be returned to the office by, Monday, December 19th. The gift certificates are then sent home with the children so the parents can redeem them before the holidays. If you are interested in being part of this wonderful program that helps our own Davenport families have a “brighter” holiday please stop by the office to participate.

If you have any questions please call Amy Scorziello at 203-253-0447
