Pokemon Update

We understand that many of our students love playing with their Pokémon cards, but Pokémon cards have become a huge distraction at school. Learning is being interrupted in classrooms, lunches are not being eaten in the cafeteria, and students have become less active at recess. As a result, fifth grade students at DFES are prohibited from bringing their Pokémon cards to school. If they bring them to school, they will be confiscated, and you may pick them up from an administrator. Please support us in this matter. Thanks in advance!

Hey all!


Your children were moved by the video about being focused while driving and requested that I share it with you. Feel free to watch the video and discuss with your child.

You will find three other Challenges & Successes t-charts in your child's binder that document the journey of groups going west from the stories Coolies, Dandelions, and Cheyenne Again. We have been gathering evidence in preparation for our next Seminar meeting.
