Check the important reminders below for weekly updates and upcoming events.
1. Relay for Life events
As I am sure you know by now, I am very involved in Relay for Life for Team Dolvin. Nearly every family has been affected by cancer and this is a great opportunity to have fun and raise money for American Cancer Society. It is also a competition which Dolvin usually wins. however, at this time, we are in 3rd place and we are about $10,000 from our goal. We need all the help we can get. Here are some upcoming events:
- Luminaria Bag sales- $10 to decorate and dedicate a bag in memory of those who have fought cancer. Going on now until May 10th.
- Kids Night Out- This is always a fun event! It will be May 5th from 4-8 and costs $25.
- Luau Spirit Day- May 11th. Students can donate $1 to wear their favorite Hawaiian shirt for "re-Lei" for Life.
- Relay for Life North Fulton- The actual relay for life event will be May 13th at Webb Bridge Middle School from 4-11PM. I hope to see some of you out there!!

I want to thank all of your for your generous gifts and recognition during staff appreciation week. I truly enjoy teaching each and every one of my students. They are all so unique and bring such great talents to the whole class. I know they are ready for middle school but I don't want to see them go. Thanks again for allowing me to make an impact on their education and life.
