JOIN DOWNING PTA
VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
You know, that moment when you sign up for a volunteer job and have no idea how to do it? Kara Steffens defines PTA pluck. Kara has intrepidly researched how our Wrap Pack selection and ordering system works and coordinated the delivery and handout of our school packs in a whirlwind back-to-school season. We appreciate her willingness to dive right into new things!
DOWNING DINE OUT
Our first Dine-Out Fundraiser of the year is coming up on Tuesday, August 24th! Stop by Costa Vida on Long Prairie Rd for Taco Tuesday between 4pm – 9pm and mention you are there to support Downing Middle School. Costa Vida will donate a portion of the proceeds, and you won’t have to worry about what to feed your family on the night of Open House. Everybody wins!
Our Hospitality team kicked off the back-to-school training week with a teacher/staff luncheon featuring oodles of Giro’s pasta, salads and bread, as well as drinks, fruit and desserts generously donated by Downing families. We are pumped for a great school year and are excited to continue lavishing attention on our hard-working Downing employees with monthly Hospitality Events.
Thanks to all the Downing families who purchased Wrap Packs!
The office still has additional wrap packs that can be purchased for a few more days.
