Dear Dunfee School Community,

We will soon be spending time with family and friends to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.  At this special time, we have much to be thankful for at LMDS.  Upon entering the building, visitors immediately sense the warmth and spirit of cooperation.  Parents, the community, the Board of Education, administration, and staff members are partners in education and work diligently to ensure the success of all children. Teachers provide an academically challenging curriculum where risk taking is applauded and encouraged.   We are fortunate to have an active PTA who graciously volunteers their time for the benefit of the students in our school.   I know that I am thankful to be part of a school family that values education and strives to do what is best for students on a daily basis.

In keeping with the season and our school theme Building a Better World, our school family raised $1,000.00 through a classroom coin collection to help the Mauriceville Elementary School located in Orange, Texas rebuild their library lost to Hurricane Harvey.  I am truly proud of the effort that our students, staff, and families put forth in supporting this worthwhile project!

As always, we have many activities taking place this month.  Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for the week of November 27th and we will be operating on the shortened day schedule from November 27th to December 1st.  Students will be dismissed at 12:20 PM on these days.  Please note that only breakfast is served on early dismissal days.

In addition, after-school activities begin on Tuesday, November 14th and clubs run until 3:35 PM. For your convenience, a list of all November happenings can be found below.

On behalf of the staff at LMDS, I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!  In the days ahead, we will continue to “Build a Better World” as we encourage our students to R.O.A.R. in all they do!

                                                       Sincerely,

                                                       Katherine Makela
   Principal

Building a Better World: DUNFEE DRAGONS R.O.A.R.
