Davis School Art Room 2nd grade tile project – Help Needed

2nd GRADE  TILE PROJECT  – Please help in your 2nd graders art class in MAY – they will be painting tiles to be hung in the Davis School hall ways. Additional finishing and glazing help is TBD. Sign up here:

Happy May and Happy Spring BEST Parents!

We hope that your children told you all about the silly and informative Eversource presentation that they saw at school last week!  The performers proved that saving the earth can be fun!  Or at least funny!

Here is what you need to know about the order forms that came home with your children:

All order forms and payment should be returned to school through KidMail by Monday, May 11.

– Checks collected should be written out to BEST/PTO.
– Items will be delivered in early June to each school (more details will follow with pick-up instructions).

Remember!  Eversource provides the energy efficient light bulbs and power strips to us AT NO COST.  Therefore, every dollar we raise through this fundraiser will be used to support the students and staff at Davis and Lane Schools.

This very fundraiser brought in several thousand dollars for our schools in 2013!  Let’s have a repeat of that past success!


Thank you for your support,


(See the Eversource Flyer for more information)
