What's happening at Dilworth this Spring?
You may have noticed that our Dragon posters are filling up with different colored scales. That's because our students are reading, taking AR quizzes, and earning dragon scales for each test passed with 80% accuracy. Way to go, Dragons!
We are excited to announce a new addition to our school family. Champagne, a 9 year old yellow lab, is going to be visiting every Thursday and listening while our children read to him. Rumor has it, he especially enjoys hearing stories about animals!
Our grade level teaching teams are working hard to write technology grants before the March 30th deadline. Each group being awarded a grant will receive iPads for each teacher and each of her students. We will be sure to keep you updated on our progress.
We have made a few adjustments to our visitors policy. All visitors to the school should enter the school through the atrium. Those that already possess a badge or are listed on the approvedvolunteer list will sign in at the greeters desk and receive a pass. If no greeter is at the desk, please come into the office to receive your pass. All visitors to the school that are not on the approved volunteer list must report to the office to sign in and receive a pass.
The number of students arriving late to school is way down this month. Please note that any student who is not in their classroom before the bell rings is considered late. Be sure to arrive at school no later than 7:40am to avoid being tardy. Parents please remember that you must park and come in the office to sign your child in if they are tardy. Students can begin to arrive as early as 7:15am. I encourage you to bring them early each day so that they have the opportunity to complete morning work and get settled before their instructional day begins.
As the weather gets warmer, many students are walking and riding scooters and bikes to school. If you are driving near our school, please be especially careful to drive slowly and cautiously. We have had two close calls because students are not watching and drivers are passing too quickly.
We are asking that all parents and students save their used books for our summer reading program. We are planning several reading celebrations during the summer and hope to have book swaps at each event. Book donations will be collected at the Spring Book Fair so be sure to save those used books!
Thank you again for your generosity during the Tip the Scales Campaign! The teachers and school administrators will be making decisions about purchases that will best support our children's educational experience.
