Great things are happening at Dalewood in March...
DreamBox Challenge IS BACK for Primary and Junior Students
Dalewood is encouraging all primary and junior students to take the Dreambox Challenge! Staff are challenging students to log 6 hours or more of time on the DreamBox program during the month of March. Every time that your child goes on the DreamBox program, the program tracks the amount of time and lessons completed. Please encourage your children to TAKE THE DREAMBOX CHALLENGE! All students will be rewarded with their choice of Dalewood “Swag” - water bottles, bracelets, puzzles, tattoos, etc. Click on the link for more information. Click here for flyer.
Bag2School is a free fundraising opportunity for schools to transform their second hand clothing into cash. Dalewood is excited to be participating in the Bag2School project from April 17th-19th, 2015 to help celebrate Earth Day.

Help us refurbish the boring Learning Commons for all our kids! New shelves, lounge chairs, carpets, books, Café tables! You can help create a dynamic space by Purchasing gift cards for stuff you already purchase… Groceries, gas, books, coffee, movies, clothing, home improvement, etc.…. And they are delivered right to your door with a click of your mouse. You can even set up a standing monthly order. Buy a $100 gift card, get a $100 gift card. And the best part is that Dalewood gets a percentage of the value of each gift card as a thank you for buying the cards! If every family bought $100 worth of gift cards (using money they were going to spend anyway), we could raise over $2000! It's that easy. Simply go to http://www.fundscrip.com and enter the special Dalewood code: Get shopping, Dalewood!
