Annual Fund Competition

The Class of 2022 continues to lead the Parent Annual Fund Competition. You can make an annual fund donation to support your student's class here. All donations of any amount count toward the class participation percentage, and the winning class gets a yummy prize. All contributions directly support our amazing Dragons and teachers.

Night of the Dragon Registration Is Live

Register today (why wait?) for our wonderful Night of the Dragon Reimagined.

This year’s auction items include: sailing on the Chesapeake; stays in Wintergreen, Snowshoe, and OBX; reserved graduation seating; a day on the James; one-of-a-kind art and jewelry; themed baskets of all kinds; gift cards to local venues, shops, wineries, and more; a kegerator; private tours of U. Va. and Hollywood Cemetery; wine and spirits; and much, much more.

Be sure to register today so you don’t miss out on updates as items become available to preview, and when the link goes live to order dinner-to-go from Perch or East Coast Provisions. Enjoy an easy evening of fun benefiting our wonderful Dragons by ordering in for Saturday, April 24! The first 75 orders include a free specialty cocktail, thanks to Belle Isle Moonshine.

Gift Card Bonanza

The Foundation is collecting gift cards for this year’s Night of the Dragon auction. Please consider supporting our scrip program or local businesses by purchasing a gift card(s) to donate, or donate cards you have but don’t see yourself using. Gift cards (and other donations) can be put into the box marked Auction in the main office off the Bluestone Lobby or delivered to the Foundation Office any time between now and April 15 (extended deadline). Go Dragons!

Contact Ginger O’Neil with questions or for more information about NOTD 2021.

Help Out with Scrip

It's not too late to purchase gift cards for your class baskets for our Night of the Dragon auction. Pick a card related to your class theme, and it will be delivered to your room parents prior to the auction. Let me know that is your intent, and I'll let your room parent know it's coming, and follow up with you.

Our next order date is Sunday, April 18, but you can shop for e-certificates and receive them immediately. Be thinking of Mother's Day and graduation gifts!

Interested in getting more involved with the PTSA Board and meeting more Dragon families? We are creating a Scrip Team for Fall 2021. Monthly tasks can be as simple as sorting gift cards into family orders, handing orders out to students at school, or promoting our program and orders! Contact Laura Dysart for more information. Thank you!
