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!
In the Fall of 2021, we launched Our Town Our Tigers, a month-long fundraising campaign designed to raise money for our school by celebrating our Davidson community, businesses, the town, and of course, our very own Davidson K-8!
The financial support from our DK8 families and our community partners provides our DK8 students, staff, and the entire school community with the resources needed to thrive beyond what state funding supports.
If you were unable to contribute during the Our Town Our Tigers campaign, you can still donate at any time throughout the year.
OUR TOWN OUR TIGERS GIVES THANKS 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.
2021 SOLAR+ SCHOOLS
NC GreenPower is pleased to award our 2021 North Carolina Solar+ Schools with a grant for the installation of an educational solar photovoltaic (PV) array, valued at $42,000. Each school will receive $14,000 in related benefits that include donated SunPower solar modules, a STEM curriculum and teacher training. The new schools join 42 other grant recipients since the program launched in 2015. For the first time, 15 schools will be considered for receiving solar installations, up from a maximum of five in Solar+ Schools’ first five years and 10 in 2020.
