We are excited to start the new school year with many staffing changes. I see them as opportunities for growth. Several teachers have moved grade levels and we’ve added Andrew Matheis to our grade four team. Welcome to all!
We encourage you to go to the Digital Docs and Links section on our home page to find Registration Materials for the new year. Please print off the New/Returning Student packet, whichever pertains to your child/children. Bring it completed when you come in for Registration on August 2 from 4-8 pm or August 3 from 8-3 pm. Please be aware that teachers will only be available in their classrooms on August 2 from 4:30-7 .
Technology is our primary source of communication. Please allow us to email you with weekly bulletins, midterm and semester grade notifications, etc. Please notify the office of any changes to email addresses and/or phone numbers.
Signing up for Family Access is of great value for tracking lunch account balances for grades K-4 and for following student grades for grades 1-4. See the handbook for more details on this opportunity. Our corporation website has a wealth of information as well.
We invite you to take an active interest in our Parent Teacher Student Organization. Each parent who has a child enrolled at Dubois is a member. We will send home notices alerting you to upcoming PTSO meetings. Our PTSO works very hard to provide many extras for our students including providing school supplies for all students and supporting class field trips. Please get involved and see, first-hand, the incredible influence this group has on the dynamics of Dubois Elementary.
Just a reminder that classes begin at 8:00. Anyone arriving after this will be counted as tardy.
Dismissal will continue to be at 3:00 (2:30 on Fridays). Attendance will be taken very seriously as this is critical to a good education for all students with few disruptions from absences and re-teaching.
Mrs. Ferguson and Staff
