July 11, 2021 | Even though we’ve only been incorporated since 2019, our volunteers have already proved we are a stable organization that can “make it happen.” Together we’ve accomplished a great deal in each of our focus areas:
Know & Grow
Each year we produce 7,150 Know & Grow wordbooks for kindergarteners and first-graders that align directly with the classroom curriculums.
Each year we print and ring 37,000 flashcards for kindergarteners and first-graders that alight directly with the classroom curriculums.
All first-graders now have Bananagrams for use in the classroom.
We are expanding Know & Grow by adding a dot-to-dot books.
June 21, 2021 | Did you know that if you give your Coca-Cola bottle caps to the school, Dinsmore Elementary gets a check?
Donations go directly to the school administration for use at their discretion. The school now receives about $50 each quarter.
With your help, we can easily quadruple that donation! Simply save any bottle cap with a product code. Also, cut out the product code printed on a box’s paper packaging. Drop them by the front office. It is that simple!
June 14, 2021 | Are you already contributing to United Way? Did you know you can designate Friends of Dinsmore Elementary, Inc. as your nonprofit charity? That way, 100% of your contribution will benefit the students at Dinsmore Elementary!
No matter where you live and work, you can designate your United Way Workplace Campaign dollars directly to Friends of Dinsmore Elementary, Inc. (EIN 83-3477623).
May 29, 2021 | Friends is pleased to announce that we have purchased the Mystery Science subscription for the 2021-2022 school year!
This is the third consecutive year Friends has provided Dinsmore Elementary with a subscription to Mystery Science and the supplies for this hands-on learning experiences. We are pleased the kids love learning about science!
May 24, 2021 | Butterflies are being released at Dinsmore Elementary!
We are excited Dinsmore Elementary students participated in Becoming Butterflies: A 4-H Metamorphosis Project! The Larva were dropped off in early April and the students watched as the caterpillars became butterflies. Then, they released the butterflies on school grounds.
Thanks to the University of Florida IFAS Extension for including Dinsmore Elementary in this free school program. Friends is pleased to have coordinated this program partnership.
