Mrs. Harris wanted me to remind all parents or grandparents who park on Pelzer, Honeysuckle, Johnstown or Haley Ct and meet your children who walk after school- PLEASE DO NOT park where the curbs are painted yellow or block the driveway or mailbox of those who live there. Beginning tomorrow, Friday, August 28 MPD will be in our area checking for this very thing. The ticket is $10 if you should receive a fine. Lets just all remember to treat our Dalraida School neighbors the way we would want to be treated if that was our home.

It's that time of year again!  We will be collecting Box Tops from now until Friday, September 18th. Our goal this year is $3,000 and all money will be used to to help the school. Please send your trimmed and in date Box Tops in a zip top bag or envelope with your child's name and homeroom teacher. By doing this we can give the correct class credit. We will be giving the winning class in grades K-2 and 3-5 a special treat for collecting the most Box Tops.

If you would like to volunteer to help with Box Tops the week of September 28th please let our Volunteer Coordinator know by emailing dalraidappa@gmail.com.
