Year and welcome back to Dunbar! It is
hard to believe that January is here, and we will soon be heading into
February! We see such a difference in
our students after the first of the year.
Not only have they physically grown, but they are learning so much and
growing academically as well.
December, our students wore their pajamas to school on Polar Express Day. They listened to The Polar Express story in
the morning and received a visit from Santa, who gave them each their own
silver bell to mark the special day. Our
Classroom Holiday Parties were a terrific way to end the time before break. Thank you to our parent volunteers for making
the parties so enjoyable for our students.
many events that will be happening over the coming weeks, and of course
February will bring Classroom Valentine Parties.
participate in the Great Kindness Challenge by encouraging and celebrating acts
of kindness. In addition, Dunbar will be
a part of the annual “Pennies for Patients” Fundraiser. This project is organized by the National Honor Society students at the high school. We will be collecting change for children who have Leukemia, which is the type of cancer that affects children the most. Thank you in advance for your generous donations.
remember that students will go outside for recess when it is above 23
degrees. We ask that you provide your
child with a warm coat, boots, hat and gloves, so that they can go out on days
that are warm enough.
As a reminder, in the event of a 2-hour delay, buses will pick students up at their regular bus stop 2 hours after their normal, scheduled time. For example, if a child normally catches the bus at 7:45 a.m., pick-up will be at 9:45 a.m. on days when a 2-hour delay is called. Likewise, school will start 2 hours after the normal start time. Dunbar students will begin classes at 10:30 a.m. The lunch periods and dismissal time will remain the same on two-hour delays.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs. Courtney A. Davis
