It is that time of the year to make sure your Value Card at Food City is connected to Dobyns-Bennett. Our annual School Bucks check typically covers 50% of our PTSA classroom grants (usually around $4,000). This money is critical to providing items for your classroom/students that are not in the regular school budget. The great thing about School Bucks money is that it is free. You simply get points for the items you already buy (when shopping at Food City).
In the past you could simply go through the check-out line at the store and register your card. They are no longer doing that in the store. The only way to connect your card to D-B is to do it through the Food City website. It is also important to note that this process has to happen every single year. So, even if you connected your card to D-B last year, you have to do the same again this year.
Here are the steps:
- Click here to go to the Food City School Bucks website
- Click the COMMUNITY tab across the top.
- Choose School Bucks
- Log in using the email address connected to your value card OR create a new account
- Go to COMMUNITY and School Bucks again (yes again)
- There is a My School Bucks section where you can click update my school. Click update my school and choose Dobyns-Bennett. You will have to scroll a good bit before you find it. The alphabet starts over several time before you find it.
Thanks for doing this for our school. We are getting a late start on the process, but most schools are.
Welcome to the D-B PTSA website! PTSA (Parent, Teacher, and Student Association) is a volunteer organization dedicated to supporting D-B’s teachers, faculty, and staff as they strive to make D-B the best possible school for our children. We would love for you to be involved! Whether you donate your time or money to PTSA (or both), your support is invaluable.
One of the most important ways we support D-B is through educational grants. Often, teachers have needs for their classroom that go beyond their budget, and PTSA steps in to fill that gap. With the help of corporate and parent donations (partnerships), and PTSA memberships, these funds are vital to our school. To help with this need, please print and fill out the PTSA Membership and Partnership form
and either mail it to the school, take it to the front office, or send it with your child to their homeroom teacher. A PTSA Volunteer Opportunities Form
is also available! PTSA meets on a monthly basis, and we would love to have you join our meetings! Thank you again for your interest in PTSA!
