A Note From the Principal

May 12, 2009

Dear Parents -
Thank you so much for your continued support in keeping our children safe and striving for academic growth. I appreciate the suggestions and conversation we have had to make our school a better place for our students and families. Additional fencing will be installed to the Dubois playground to physically contain our students as well as upgraded radios have been purchased thanks to our PTO.
For those of you who wish to request a particular teacher for the 2009-2010 school year I must have that in writing prior to the last day of school. I do not guarantee that your request will be granted, however I will take it under advisement. Due to the size of our classes, transfers into Dubois school will be limited. Those people currently on transfer who will continue for next year have already received notification. If you did not receive notification you will need to register at your home school.
Please continue to read with your children at home and ask questions that require them to think and respond rather than just recall information as it will build their comprehension. Everyday activities are great ones for math as well .... pieces of pizza, setting the table, food labels etc.
Thank you for support! Cindy J. Baugher
