    Dear Parents and Guardians: 

    The month of February was a busy one.  Last month the PTA sponsored the first dance, the Rocking ROAR Bash and it was well attended and our students had a blast! Additionally, we celebrated the 100th day of school, Mid-Year Awards Assemblies, and a visit from the Cat in the Hat. We begin this month participating in Dr. Seuss’, National Read Across America Day, where many former Dunfee staff and community members will visit grades Preschool - Second Grade to read; March 12th is our Annual Science Fair and later this month we have another big annual event, the PTA McDonald’s NIght, Thursday, March 19th!  I would like to thank the PTA and all of our staff who participated by volunteering their time to support all of the past and upcoming events; your support and enthusiasm make these events a huge success. 

    Please see below a list of events and important dates for March:
