Jog-A-Thon!!!

Jog A Thon is on Friday, Oct. 9th.  If you would like to volunteer,  please check with your child’s teacher to see what help is needed.  We are also looking for donations of water.  We want to be sure that all our students will be well hydrated during Jog A Thon.  Water donations can be dropped off in front of the school at the flag pole.

 

Good Luck Donaldson Way Dragons!!!!

 

 

Emergency Evacuation

Today at dismissal time Donaldson Way was notified that there was gas leak in the neighborhood behind the school. Parents and students were instructed to exit the school via the front entrance only. Mrs. Abelon would like to thank the staff, parents, students and teachers for their cooperation with the evacuation instructions. For the most part, all went well. However, there were a few instances where parents and/or caregivers interfered or argued with teachers and staff in regards to the evacuation instructions. Please remember that it is very important to follow evacuation instructions that are being given by staff and teachers when there is an emergency. The safety of our children is our Number one priority.
