Dear Dunfee School Community,
It is hard to believe that in only a few short weeks springtime will be here. The winter weather posed a challenge for all of us this year, and we are hoping for a warm spring with lots of sunshine! March weather can be very tricky so please be sure that your child wears a warm coat and hat to school each day to ensure they stay warm during recess. We have had a busy February and look forward to the same in March. The Science Fair on February 27th provided students with the opportunity to share their talents and science expertise with their peers and family. During the evening exhibit, Mrs. Peregman, Science Enrichment teacher, organized some fun interactive stations where students and their families explored a host of topics. A special thank you to our PTA for organizing this worthwhile program and our staff members for volunteering to help man the stations during the evening event. It was truly a team effort!!
We also have a host of events that will be taking place this month. On March 3rd , we will be celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday with a District Read Aloud and on March 5th students who had perfect attendance for marking period 2 will be treated to a Philadelphia Pretzel Party, courtesy of the PTA. In addition, the PTA is hosting a Spaghetti Dinner on March 13th and we have many staff volunteers to assist in this endeavor. Mr. Gagnon will be the Master of Ceremony and providing entertainment with parent Victor Brescia and teachers and staff members will serve as waiters and waitresses. Needless to say, we are very excited about this event! Please come out and support the PTA for a fun-filled evening.
