Our librarian, Mrs. Gomon, would like to thank Daffron PTA for all of these beautiful new books! These 18 award-winning titles from the American Library Association's 2020 Awards are on display in the front case of the library. The theme of this selection is diversity. We are thrilled to have such great books for the students to read. And we appreciate Mrs. Gomon for taking the time to find quality literature for our campus!

Community Rewards at Kroger – Shop at Kroger with your Kroger Plus Card and Kroger will send money to our school.
You can enroll or re-enroll your Kroger Plus Card in the Kroger Community Rewards Program. This program will contribute a percentage of each purchase to Daffron PTA.

Daffron Elementary PTA has partnered with the World Wear Project in a new fundraising effort. The goal is to make gently worn clothing and shoes affordable and available to people domestically and internationally who might otherwise be unable to afford new clothing.
A donation bin is located in a parking spot at the back of Daffron behind the trash receptacle. Proceeds will benefit Daffron Elementary PTA. Students and parents are invited to contribute used shoes, clothing, belts, hats, purses, wallets, backpacks, hard toys, stuffed animals, pots, and pans for collection.
