Hello Dever Community! Dever is working to create two new spaces within the building, an office for the Nurse and a quiet space for students/staff who need to take a breather. In order to make that happen, we are looking for donations to stock the two spaces. New, unopened blankets, pillows, small rugs, reusable and one use ice packs, comfortable seating, a cot for students to lay on when they are under the weather, etc. We are also accepting monetary donations to make this happen. Please stop by the office with even the smallest items you think will be helpful! Thank you!
Dever collects box tops for education as one of our ongoing fundraisers. Please contact Mrs. Zelko for information.
