Bear Essentials


PAWS Party Thanks!

We've had quite a busy week at Dyer Elementary, and it was fun to cap it off with our November PAWS Parties! We want to thank all of the awesome volunteers that helped our bears play Bingo today! We truly could not have done it without you. If you haven't had a chance to help at one of our parties yet, it's not too late. We have four more parties this year, and we will definitely need help running them. Dates are listed below so you can mark your calendars! (Note: parties take place during recess.) In addition to parties, we will be holding lots of raffles, and other events throughout the year. Stay tuned for more info. on how you can get involved.

Birthday Wishes in Big Lights!

This year we will continue to implement and expand our PAWS (PBIS) program school-wide. The goal of this program is to not only notice positive behavior, but also to reward that behavior. You can help support the funding of this program, and wish your child a happy birthday on our school marquee at the same time. It's a win-win! For a $5 contribution, a Happy Birthday message along with your child's first name and last initial will be displayed on our marquee for three days during the week of your child's birthday. Summer birthday? Not a problem, We will display summer birthday messages during the last week of school and during their birthday week. NOTE: Your child's name will be displayed on their birth date as well as the day immediately before and after. Orders can be placed via under the School Events tab. Please note, requests will be processed the next business day.
