There is much excitement in the air as we prepare for the upcoming holiday season. The Dunfee staff, in conjunction with the Student Council, will be sponsoring a toy drive. The Student Council will also be promoting School Spirit Week from December 16th to the 20th. A flyer outlining planned activities for the week will be forthcoming. Our PTA will be holding a Holiday Shoppe on December 5th and 6th to provide students with the opportunity to purchase inexpensive gifts for their families. Our third grade students and chorus have been busy practicing for the annual holiday program to take place on December 18th. In addition, first graders will be treated to Breakfast with Santa and our second grade classes will be participating in a special reading of The Polar Express. As you can see, students and staff at LMDS are definitely in the holiday spirit!
Congratulations to Mrs. Delaporte’s 5th grade class for being the first winner of the “We Are Present Everyday!” class attendance initiative. For their effort in being in school and on time each day, they received a Dunkin’ Donuts party. The contest begins again and all classes are in the running. Good luck!!
As the days get shorter, and the colder weather sets in, I would like to remind students to wear a warm coat, hat and gloves to school each day. Weather permitting, we strive to go out and get fresh air during recess, and it is important that students are dressed appropriately to ensure they remain warm.
Below, you will find a list of all December happening for your convenience. Please note that we will be operating on the shortened day schedule on December 20th; all students will be dismissed at 12:20 PM on this day.
