Dear Fifth Grade Fox Cubs & Families!


It breaks my heart that we were not able to spend your last months of elementary school with each other. I am thankful that our last week together was filled with lots of learning, laughter, and happy times. As we end this school year, let’s reflect on the good times and how much everyone has evolved and matured. I am so proud of how our Fox Cub families have remained positive and continued to work hard during these trying times! The fifth grade teachers put together a slideshow (see below) to help celebrate 5th graders and the wonderful friendships that have been built while growing up at DFES. I hope you enjoy it, and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday at the parade for our final farewell!


Love & Hugs,
Mrs. J : )
