Attention DMMS Parents and Guardians –
It is not too late to make an end of the year tax donation to the Dakota Meadows PTA for non-budgetary school needs and educational enrichment requests (i.e. more outdoor lunch/recess equipment, sports equipment, fine arts resources, fields trips, etc.)…especially if you missed the Colorathon Fundraiser opportunity this fall and are trying to TAKE ADVANTAGE of CURRENT 2017 TAX LAW regarding charitable giving.
According to Stacy Palmer, the editor of the Chronicle of Philathrophy, ( https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/pbs-newshour-full-episode-december-21-2017 14:02-14:31), for many middle class families who itemize, 2017 is ‘A GOOD YEAR TO GIVE’. Please consider a charitable donation to the DMMS PTA, a 501(c)-3, by sending a check dated AND postmarked by Dec. 31, 2017.
Please write checks out to DMMS PTA.

Be a builder of a strong DMMS educational community!
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
Save These Items for DMMS PTA!
Please consider saving the following items to help raise money for Dakota Meadows Middle School:
•Campbells: small labels from the back of the cans. (Not the entire labels as in years ago.) Also, they are on related products such as Franco American and Prego.
•Aluminum cans. They can go into the “cage” in the front of the school, near the parking lot.
•Milk covers with the 5 cent label on top.
•Box Tops: They can be found on many products around your house, including Kleenex, Zip Lock bags, Pop Secret popcorn, etc.
•Target “Take Charge of Education”. Designate your Target charge card to give a portion to Dakota Meadows. This does not cost you anything.
•HyVee receipts from the Mankato stores, dated from Labor Day through Memorial Day.
Thanks for all your efforts! PTA does so much for our students, so let’s do our part too.
All items may be dropped off in Homeroom or in the School office.
Target “Take Charge of Education”
To designate a school, or to change your school designation, go to http://www.target.com/
Then go to redcards, listed across the top. Go to the left side.
Here you can designate your school, or change to another school.
If you already have a red card, you can check on how much your designated school has earned.
