Dear Dunfee School Family,
Spring is finally here and students are able to get outside for recess on a consistent basis. As it is always cooler and windier up on the hill, please have your child wear a warm jacket to school each day.
On behalf of the Dunfee School students and staff, I wish to congratulate Mrs. Plaia, fourth grade teacher, for being named LMDS Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Plaia is very deserving of this award and an integral member of our school family.
I would also like to take this time to stress the importance of regular attendance. Research supports that regular attendance is a major contributor to the academic, social, and emotional growth of students. It further stresses the importance of being in school and on time each day. Please make every effort in getting your children to school on time and not sign them out early unless absolutely necessary.
PARCC testing for students in grades 3 & 5 begins on April 24th and runs through May 2nd. Fourth grade students will be testing May 4th through May 12th. A letter to parents/guardians was sent home with students in their Tuesday folder.
For your convenience, a list of all April happening can be found below. Please note that Friday, April 7th, is a shortened day for students.
In closing, I continue to be impressed by the support and generosity of our school community. Thank you for helping make LMDS a pleasant place to learn and work.
