Good Evening students and parents,
This is Lauryn Duncan, Principal at Douglass Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.
Parents, you are invited to a 5th grade Parent Night at Holmes Middle school on Monday, February 27. The parent information session will begin at 5:30. You will be provided information regarding the transition from 5th grade to 6th grade. You will also have an opportunity to tour Holmes Middle school with your child.
We will be celebrating “Read Across America Week” the week of February 27. Please join us in celebrating by having your child wear their favorite hat on Monday, celebrating the silly fox by wearing our wildest socks on Tuesday, recognizing all that is tacky by wearing mismatched clothes that make us look tacky on Wednesday, it’s hard to get out bed some days so on Thursday, no need to get dressed; wear pajamas instead, and on Friday we encourage all students to dress up like a character from their favorite book because we know their costumes will be off the hook.
Parents, if you have a rising kindergartener please join us on March 21 at Douglass Elementary beginning at 6:00 for a kindergarten 101 session. Mrs. June Nealy will present important information to parents of rising kindergarteners. Please remember that your child must turn 5 on or after August 31.
I would like to thank everyone that participated in our candy bar fundraiser in September. Thank you to everyone who has turned in any outstanding candy money. We still have not received payment for 29 boxes of chocolate which means we still have a $1,690 outstanding balance. That’s a considerable amount of money that we could really use to support our students and their learning. If you have not turned in your candy money, please do that this week.
Parents Thursday, February 23 is an early release day. Students will be dismissed at 12:45 pm. If your child is a car rider please be sure their ride is here at 12:45 pm.. Also, Friday, February 24 is a teacher workday. There will be no school for students on Friday, February 24.
We hope you enjoy the rest of your evening and we look forward to seeing you bright and early tomorrow morning.
