Please take the Survey
We are conducting a School Culture Survey until December 9th, 2016. The purpose of the survey is to gather information that will help us in continuing the tradition of excellence for all in our schools. This survey will be used to continue to improve our school culture while guiding every child, by need and by name, to graduation.
If you, or a parent you know, lacks internet access to complete the survey you can come take the survey at Dunbar in the main office 12/6-12/9 anytime between 2:30-4:00.

PTO Spirit Night at Mi Patron – Tuesday, December 6 at the Boonsboro Shopping Center location. Skip the cooking and come eat in or get take out and support your PTO.

American Education Week in November Your PTO was busy celebrating our education team at Dunbar all week. Teachers and staff received inspirational surprises in their mailboxes, each day and there was a gift card drawing with several lucky winners each day. We appreciate all that our teachers and staff do for our students at Dunbar!
BoxTops—Our first check is on the way! Hopefully you have noticed the awesome BoxTops drop box in the lobby at Dunbar! In just the short time we have started collecting these, we have already raised $50 for PTO! Can we make it $500 for the spring check?
All you have to do is collect the little rectangles found on hundreds of products you know and love -- including cereals, snacks, food storage bags, meals and sides, paper products and juices. Each BoxTop that is clipped and turned in to the school is worth 10 cents. Now, there’s a way to increase the value of those little rectangles—download the BoxTops App—free for IOS and Android. Scan items and your receipts and we get a bonus in addition to the ones you clip from the package! Questions? Contact (email@example.com) or Nanette Boswell (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Go here to find out more and get the free app. Our school is called “Paul Dunbar School for Innovation” in the app.
