2021 - 2022DK8 PTO Fundraising
The Davidson K-8 PTO is responsible for raising money for our school community for needs beyond what state funding supports. We are 100% funded by contributions from our DK8 families and our community partners and there are NO membership fees when you give to our PTO (compared to that of a PTA, Parent Teacher Association). That means, everything you give goes directly to our great school!
THANK YOU TO OUR COMMUNITY SPONSORS!
With their support we can fund some of our most basic needs for DK8 such as scholarships, as well as larger projects that make DK8 so special.
Main Street Books strives to feed the imaginations of our readership with books that act as windows and mirrors. We also invite readers and writers into conversation with readings, signings, book club, writing club, and story time.
Main Street Books enriches and sustains local readers and writers through an inclusive, thoughtful collection, curated events, and an engaged staff.
We are excited to share that DK8 reached its fundraising goal for the NC GreenPower Solar+ Schools grant program with the generous support of Trane Technologies, our Champion Sponsor. We are also grateful to our DK8 families that contributed to this effort. We will soon have an educational solar photovoltaic (PV) system with 12 solar panels installed right on our DK8 campus!
The program is administered by NC GreenPower* and offers a 5-kilowatt solar array that comes with a weather station, data monitoring equipment, a STEM curriculum developed for our K-8 students, and a training workshop for our teachers. Our students will have the ability to learn about clean energy through a hands-on STEM curriculum tailored for grade levels. The estimated install date for the solar PV system is spring/summer 2022, with the STEM curriculum set to roll out for the 2022-23 school year.
Trane Technologies, based here in Davidson, launched a new corporate citizenship strategy, Sustainable Futures. One area of focus is to enhance learning environments for students. By leveraging the company’s expertise and resources, the company will support a generation of learners with the potential to transform our way of life, making this partnership with DK8 a perfect fit.
We’re beyond grateful to Trane Technologies and NC GreenPower for their efforts in supporting DK8 and taking a step toward reducing negative impacts on the environment, working to provide a cleaner, greener future for our school and our Davidson community, and helping to educate our DK8 students about clean energy – how it works and its impact.
