GIFT WRAP DRIVE IS UNDERWAY THROUGH 11/4
This week, students in grades 1-5 can turn in their Gift Wrap Promise Cards on Tuesday and Thursday during lunch. A rep will come to the Kindergarten classes. Great prizes are available to them from the Spirit Store, depending on number of item sold. For details about this "Amazing Race," and extra Promise Cards, click here.
 
We need 12 volunteers on the morning of November 4 to help count the orders. If you can help, please email us at discovery.pto@smusd.org.
 
There are so many choices (besides gift wrap!) in the catalogs including, nuts and candies, candles, jewelry, ornaments, and more! The drive ends November 4 and is budgeted to raise $15,000 (roughly a quarter of our annual fundraising goal) to keep us on track to fund school programs for another year. Extra packets are available at the front office.

Congratulations to Mrs. Barnill's 2nd grade class for turning in the most Box Tops! They turned in 522 Box Tops and will have a party on November 7. Way to go!

HALLOWEEN, RED RIBBON WEEK & SPIRIT DAY
Red Ribbon week takes place all week, ending with Wear Red Day on Friday, October 31 (Halloween & Spirit Day). Students should wear red on 10/31, though Kindergarteners can wear costumes. Red Ribbon Week is an awareness program observed nationwide that's dedicated to the early prevention of alcohol, tobacco and drugs.
 
GET EARLY-BIRD PRICING ON YEARBOOKS
When you order your school yearbook before January 31, you pay just $20. After that, it goes up to $25. No one wants to try to remember to order a yearbook during the busy holiday season. Right? Check this off your list! Order online today. Discovery's yearbooks are 104 pages, full-color and hardcover. So nice! Delivered to classrooms at the end of the school year. Students who donated $250 or more for Dollar Drive will automatically receive a yearbook at the end of the year!
