Red/White Week 2015!
Red/White week, which leads up to the Manual/Male football game and the Battle for the Barrel, is full of great activities. There are many ways for you to be a part of the fun and help our students have a fantastic week.
Friday, October 16th - Decoration night - The students will be decorating the halls in preparation for the following week and they need our help. If you have ladders or scaffolding you can loan us or you can join in the decorating itself, that would be terrific! Ladders can be dropped off at Door/Exit #22 which is located next to the two green recycling dumpsters. All ladders will be stored in the archway/atrium area in the back of the Manual auditorium. You may bring them any day between Oct 12th-16th. Please make sure they are the "A" type and don't need to be leaned on anything. Also, please mark them with your name and phone number. We will also need adults to help our students that will be staying all evening and decorating. This is a bigger task than in previous years as they will be decorating all the dMHS buildings this time around so ladders and people are crucial to making this a success!! Last but not least, our awesome students will work up an appetite while working! We will need food donations for them to enjoy as well.
Monday October 19th, Ramstock - This music fest is held in the courtyard after school - Student bands play and provide plenty of entertainment. The PTSA will provide popcorn for the students and could use some help bagging it up and handing it out.
Wednesday October 21st, Mini Olympics - This event will feature carnival type booths set up in the gym - PTSA will be running the Duck Pond and supplying baked goods and candy for prizes. We could also few parents to help clean up so that the basketball team can practice.
Friday October 23, Game Day There will be a tug of war to celebrate so if you have a good tug of war rope or access to vast amounts of whipped cream please let us know!
Please contact Leslye Arnett at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
