October 2nd (Wednesday) – “WALK TO SCHOOL DAY” - In an effort to promote environmental awareness, as well as physical fitness, we are asking our students to either ride their bikes or walk to school this day. As always, in an effort to promote safety, we ask that students who choose to ride their bikes wear an approved safety helmet and follow all safety rules; and all walkers walk with a friend or family member and only cross streets at designated areas. Better yet, join one of the walking school buses.
All Donner students will receive FREE Breakfast between 7:30-7:55AM
Come shop at the Farmer’s Market – Fresh produce will be on sale at a reduced price.
A “Walk to School” spirit rally will take place at 8:15AM in the quad. The Harriett Eddy Middle School Band and Elitha Donner’s own Spirit and Student Unity Rally Team featuring Splash our school Mascot will help to kick off the morning’s events.
Then join us from 8:50 – 11:00AM for our “Health and Safety Fair” organized by staff and parents with the help of local businesses. The fair will feature a rotation schedule of stations emphasizing exercise, healthy eating safety, community awareness, and environmental awareness:
- Martial Arts
- Elk Grove Unified Police Services and CSD Fire Safety
- EGUSD Food and Nutrition Services
October 3rd (Thursday) “BOOK SWAP/ TRACK D”– All D Track students are encouraged to participate in the Donner Book Swap this Monday. Students will have the opportunity to look for a book during their lunch recess. All students can participate even if they did not bring in a book to swap. We ask that “Book Swap” books be returned to the school office when children are no longer interested in reading them.
(We are continually accepting books for the book swap. Please bring in any new or gently used books that your child no longer reads or is interested in. This allows us to provide other children with new and exciting books to read and your child benefits from finding a new book as well. Each track will participate in the book swap the Thursday before they track off.)
October 4th (Friday) “SPIRIT WEAR DAY” – This Friday is a spirit wear day! Have you been noticing some new Donner Spirit Wear being worn on Fridays? That’s right there are some new styles on campus.
