An Update From The Bear Den
We thank you all for your assistance with your child's charity project. We have been very impressed with the dedication and generosity of our families. I think it is very important that we are teaching our students about the joys of giving and to consider the needs of others at all times. I am so thankful this is a life lesson we are instilling in our students. Thank you for your participation.
Read on for a few more updates from the Bear Den!
*As the heart of the winter months are right around the corner, please make sure your child has his/her coat, hat, gloves, etc each day. In addition, please mark all items with your child's name.
*The Main Street School Zone lights are working once again! Thank you all for your patience through the repair process.
*Do you know someone that might be interested in serving the district as a paraeducator substitute? We are always looking for individuals to start subbing. Please contact the Danville CSD Human Resources Director, Debbie Bennage at email@example.com.
*Please be reminded to call Nurse Enger or Miss Alice in the elementary office if your child will be absent from school.
*Unfortunately sickness is on the rise everywhere. Please encourage your child to wash his/her hands often.
*Please be reminded that your child should be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school after being absent. In addition, they should not have vomited within 24 hours in order to return to school.
Winter Assessment Information
It is important that over the holiday break, students have an opportunity to maintain their reading and math skills. Please continue your 30 minutes of reading throughout the break, to avoid a vacation set back in levels. Students can also sustain their math skills by practicing flash cards, playing online math games, or practicing with a parent. Continuing these habits, will help your child on his/her assessments in January. Thank you!
