I am very excited to tell you about a special Art and Literature Night at Dubois coming up on November 19th (6-7p.m.). The students will have an awesome opportunity to share with their families the art work of Edgar Degas in a large scale. Art panels from Teachers Discovery Art will be on display. These panel will create a museum like setting for our families. Three panels ranging in size from 4’X4’ to 4’X17’ will allow our families and guests to view artwork on a scale they may never have seen before.
In addition to the art work of Edgar Degas, our own art club students will have artwork for purchase in a Silent Auction. Family activities will include a make and take bookmark and an art scavenger hunt. In addition, teachers will be reading stories about creativity, artists, and imagination. I hope to see you there as it is a great opportunity for us to be together and support the arts and literacy!!
As many of you know, we have been advised by the Public Health Department to practice active screening which is the recommendation from the Center for Disease Control when it comes to attempting to contain the illnesses that are hitting schools everywhere. To that end, we deal with several students on a daily basis that are sent to school when they are exhibiting more than two symptoms on the recommended exclusion list. Please check your children prior to coming to school for any symptoms that may exclude them from class. They are:  fever, runny or stuffy noses, coughing, headaches, vomiting or diarrhea. If your child exhibits these symptoms they will be sent home from school. I know this is difficult to manage as a working adult, but if we work together at this, we may be able to keep this from lasting longer than necessary.
Thank you in advance for your assistance,
