DAVENPORT RIDGE WEEKLY UPDATE 1/16/17

APPLICATIONS FOR DGT ARE DUE TOMORROW

Don’t forget to turn in your application for DGT tomorrow, Tuesday, January, 17th. There are many ways for students and parents to get involved. We are also still collecting large baskets for the DGT raffles. Please donate if you can.

DAVENPORT OUTDOOR CLASSROOM

Together with the teachers, Davenport PTO will turn the atrium at Davenport Ridge Elementary into an Outdoor Classroom. We hope to give students a space for less structured learning while promoting education of earth sciences. Studies have shown that students of all ages can benefit from learning outdoors.

To create the ideal space, we estimate the entire project will cost approximately $25,000.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: Painting,  Landscape, Donate!

We will provide several fundraising efforts, including an opportunity to leave your legacy at Davenport by purchasing an engraved brick. More information will be provided in the upcoming weeks.

For more information on how you can help, including joining the Outdoor Classroom committee, please contact davenportridgepto@gmail.com, Ms. Manente (LManente@StamfordCT.gov) or Ms. Minella (CMinella@StamfordCT.gov).
