Volunteers needed for STEAM week (week of Feb 3) and family STEAM Night (Feb 7). We'll need helping hands throughout the week at school, so if you are able to help any day or for a block of time, please contact Jamie Dodd or let your child's teacher know. STEAM week is a wonderful time of hands on learning for the kids, but it takes a lot of manpower, so we can use as little or as much time as you can give!
It's AUCTION Season! As you Dolphin vets know, this isn't just a fun, themed dress-up party, it's our biggest fundraiser of the year! New Dolphin parents: you will start to see lots of information coming about the auction so stay tuned here to keep up with the latest and greatest.
The money raised at the auction goes to our general PTA fund, which helps pay for so many things such as: playground equipment, campus beautification, the library, makerspace, the garden, classroom supplies, the electronic marquee in front the school, and much more.
This year's auction is an 80's theme and yes, costumes are encouraged and most people do dress up! Tickets will go on sale very soon, so keep watching this space for all the details.
Come take a trip around the world this Friday at International Night, from 6-8pm in the MPR! Where else can you enjoy tasty bites, music, dancing, crafts and raffle prizes for FREE?!
Happy new year everyone! Less than one week from today is our annual International Night! Bring the whole family to do arts & crafts, try tasty food samples from around the world and enjoy cultural performances.
We are still collecting recipes for a FREE cookbook, so send one (or more!) to email@example.com, as well as travel photos for a slideshow to firstname.lastname@example.org
Where in the world have you been? Please share a photo or two from your family's travels, and we'll include it in a fun slideshow that will be shown at International Night! Photos can be sent to America Gonzalez at email@example.com.

The dust has settled and we have the grand total for the Fun Run, drum roll please....$36, 611!! That is the largest amount fundraised to date, for any Fun Run at Matthew Turner! We exceeded previous years by more than $10K! A huge thank you to the parents, grandparents, relatives, friends, neighbors, volunteers and everyone else who supported the Fun Run! This money will fund new technology in the classrooms, outdoor education programs and so much more. We couldn't do it without our Turner community, and we are grateful for all of you. The PTA sends you our heartfelt thanks and wishes for a relaxing and restorative Thanksgiving break .🧡
