Community Outreach/Backpack Buddies – Kelly Divine and Heather Watkins
Daniels is partnering with White Memorial Presbyterian Church again this year for the Backpack Buddies program.  The church will provide the food for all the backpacks.  The first delivery is scheduled for Wednesday September 28th and the first distribution will be on Friday the 30th at the end of the day.  Volunteers of the committee will gather on Wednesday evening or Thursday during the day to sort and pack the food. We have contacted those who indicated an interest in volunteering for this committee and are in the process of finalizing our exact needs as well as a schedule for packing.  We should be notifying everyone by the end of next week.

Membership Committee – Leigh Ann Kerr and Paige Peden
As of September 8, 2016, the DMS PTA has approximately 225 memberships including 70 teacher memberships.

Reflections Committee – Valerie deLoach and Stacey Penn
We are working with Dr. Battle and the department heads and special education department to get a great representation for Daniels this school year. The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for Pre-K- 12th grade students. It offers these students opportunities to express themselves creatively in six different art categories and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme. Please review the information on the website to learn more about the program and to access the forms needed for students. The Reflections theme for 2016-2017 is “What is Your Story?” Collections are through the end of October. More information will be coming soon.

Sportswear – Jennifer Doefler and Marybeth Deprato
The Sportswear committee has two different ways to volunteer this year; regular sales at events and fulfillment of online orders.  If you choose order fulfillment, you would fill all online orders that come in for a month from the sportswear supplies kept at school.  You can do this as often as you like as long as it’s at least every two weeks.  You may not even get any orders to fill in a month. More detailed instructions will be provided to those who sign up. Click here to sign up for one or more shifts.
