Dear Dana Families and Friends,

PTSA Bookfair

PTSA is supporting Dana's Literacy Week by running the Scholastic Book Fair  Monday-Friday, 2/4-2/8.  We need your help to make it a success!  There are short shifts available to work every morning before school, during lunch, and at dismissal.  Please look at the sign-up link and help out where you can.  http://signup.com/go/MkMnfKd  This event provides books for the school library and for teachers' personal classroom libraries.  Sign up to volunteer today at:  http://signup.com/go/MkMnfKd 

Did you know that you can support Dana and shop the bookfair online?  Online shopping begins on Sunday 1/27 and will be available until 2/16. http://www.scholastic.com/bf/danamiddleschoolwiseburn. Proceeds will support Dana classrooms and our library!

For questions, contact Liza Somilleda lasomilleda@aol.com

Catalina and DC Trip Updates – Please take note

At their trip meetings this week, Catalina registered and DC registered and waitlisted students received WUSD/WorldStrides travel forms to take home to their parent/guardians.

Please keep in mind the following, and contact Mrs. Ory if you have questions regarding these activities.

Help Make 2019 Rock Around the Block a Huge Success!

This awesome community event features student musical performances, carnival rides and games, silent auction and more. We need your help to make it great! Join us for our next planning meeting on February 5th, 6:30 p.m. at Cabrillo Elementary. Everyone is welcome to attend! All proceeds benefit programs supported by WEF.

Do you own a local business? Have season tickets to a sporting event? Have a connection to share? 

WEF is also soliciting donations for our Rock Around the Block online and silent auctions. It's a great opportunity for a local business or service provider to boost exposure and gain new customers to boot! And the monies raised enrich our students' learning experience.
