Drake PTSA Newsletter

November 2014



State of Drake

Mr. Pugnetti gave an update at the last PTSA Meeting: Most importantly, he let us know the year is off to a great start!  Our teachers and students are engaged and committed.

One of the biggest changes this school year is in the way assessments will be conducted. Instead of the typical three week time period, testing this school year will begin in early February and continue through the remainder of the year. The teachers and staff at Drake are working hard to schedule these tests in such a way that they minimize time lost in other classes while testing is being conducted in one subject at a time.

With all the turmoil currently going on in the district, the Drake teachers are holding up well, but any encouragement parents and our community can pass along would go a long way! Negotiations of their new contract will start in January with an effective date of September 2015. The hope is that all will go smoothly.  

Mr. Pugnetti also let us know how much help the PTSA fundraising is doing for the school. With PTSA funds he's been able to purchase:
  • 32 Chromebooks (with charging carts & all of the accessories needed for state testing)
  • 10 Laptops
  • 8 Replacement chargers for laptops & Chromebooks
  • Toner cartridges
  • Storybird registration for online creative writing
  • 4 Replacement remotes for projectors


Cookie Dough Fundraiser

Congratulations Drake Dragons on a very successful Fall Cookie Dough Fundraiser.  PTSA was able to raise over $12,800.00.

We had 54 students who qualified for the Limo to Lunch by selling over 15 items.  Our top seller was Logan Rogers with 40 items, great job Logan!  The Advisement class with the most participants and the winner of morning Donuts was Mrs.Griesinger's Advisement! 

Thank you to all of our parent volunteers who placed stickers, collected coupons, counted money and carried boxes of frozen cookie dough.  A special Thank you to the wonderful Drake Office staff for all of their additional help and support!
