Coat Collection

With the colder weather, it has come to our attention that we have many kids here at Dayton that do not have coats, hats, and gloves. Dayton is collecting new and slightly used coats, hats, and gloves for our Dayton students in need. Please send your donation in to the front office. We thank you for your help!
