Dear Parents and Students,

The Me to We Club is a student-led club promoting volunteerism. In the last two years, the Me to We Club has focused its efforts on assisting another school in our Abu Dhabi community. The Pakistan Community Welfare School (PCWS) desperately needs and appreciates our support. This

year we are doing a book and toy drive to help the principals goal of promoting English language learning and joy for the 500 students at PCWS.

This year getting involved is SIMPLE! All students have to do is bring in spare dirhams and place them in their classroom, Dirhams for a Difference, jar. Our goal is 20,000 dirhams by the end of February. Each week the elementary and high school classes that donates the greatest number of dirhams wins a pizza party! The first weekly competition has begun and will end Tuesday February 4, 2014, with the first pizza party taking place Sunday February 9, 2014. Classroom totals will start over each week. As well, if you have any new or used gift bags you would like to donate, please feel free to do so. We will eventually need 500 bags.

We know how supportive our CIS community is and are so grateful to be part of such a caring school! Thank you for helping make Dirhams for a Difference a success!
