Each Dawson student is one of a kind and just as our approach toward world readiness has evolved, it’s now time for the physical landscape of our campus to follow suit. With the School’s commitment to philanthropy as the guide, our goal is to further enhance more innovative and creative spaces across our school campus that are designed to meet the modern learning needs of our students.
Dawson Bears are stirring up conversations about the annual fund and we finally figured out where all those cookies are coming from! As a special thank you, all Dawson families who donate during the #WeBelieveinDawson campaign will receive their own box of shortbread biscuits on Friday, April 14. Chef Susan got the recipe from the students, so you know they're going to be good. Give by April 11 to reserve your box at adsrm.org/believe!
During week 2, for a minimum donation of $25.00, your name will be entered into a drawing for one FREE after-school BASE Enrichment class during the fourth quarter, which begins Monday, March 20. (*Please note: A donation must be made the same week this specific incentive is offered to have a chance to win; therefore, multiple donations over the course of the We Believe campaign are accepted.)
Congratulations to our week 1 winners of a $100.00 gift card for Dawson Bear Wear – the Brodie family, the Mainor family, and the Jordan family– and let’s not forget about our exciting grade-level participation competitions! At the end of our Annual Fund campaign:
Any grade from EC-8 that achieves at least 70 percent parent/guardian or grandparent participation will win a pizza party on Friday, April 14! Your gift of any amount from the very start of our We Believe campaign will count toward each grade’s overall participation total.
Plus, from sports teams to favorite activities to people who inspire, if we achieve at least 85 percent participation as a whole school, each community member can wear a shirt in support of what they Believe in the most on Friday, April 14. Your gift of any amount from the very start of our We Believe campaign will count toward the School's overall participation total.
And we are excited to announce a new incentive from Las Vegas Lights FC, our local premier American professional soccer team! Any grade from EC-8 that achieves 100 percent parent/guardian or grandparent participation will receive one FREE ticket for each student in that grade and any additional tickets for just $10.00 to a Lights FC home game at Cashman Field on Sunday, May 7, at 3:00 p.m.!Your gift of any amount from the very start of our We Believe campaign will count toward each grade’s overall participation total.
