Welcome Back Bears!

We've had a great first week of school! The children and teachers have settled into their routines, and are already hard at work. We would love to share "a day in the life" of your student at Dyer. Please mark your calendars and plan on joining us for Curriculum Night on Wednesday 8/23 (K-2) and Thursday 8/24 (3-5). Both evenings events will begin at 6:45.

In the meantime, you can sneak a peek at what's happening here at Dyer by visiting our Facebook page.

Dyer Parents are Kid Approved!

Thank you to everyone that helped to support our new parent organization with your generous family donations! The students gave a big "thumbs up" for their ice cream party during lunch today! Thank you also to the volunteers that came in to distribute the ice cream!

Every parent/guardian is automatically a member of our PTO this year, and we are thrilled to have such an incredible team! Please follow this link to our electronic volunteer survey, so we can make sure your talents don't go to waste! Here you can indicate where you'd like to help . Whether you want to be a room parent, read to your child's class, send in items, help in the media center, or with music/drama club or head up a committee....there are volunteer opportunities for everyone! We are so fortunate to have a community of involved, and supportive parents, and we would love for everyone to be a part of it!

Bruster's Blue Ice Day - Wednesday 8/16

Our first Bruster's Blue Ice Day is next Wednesday! Students will be able to purchase a famous "Blue Ice" for $2 during their lunch. A portion of the sale will come back to Dyer.

Chick-Fil-A Spirit Night - Thursday 8/17

Take the night off from cooking, and come out for a fun community event. A portion of the sales will go back to our school, (just be sure to let your server know you're with Dyer). Some of our staff will be there to mingle with the students, and the class with the most attendance will win a cookie party!

Solar Eclipse Viewing Event

We are excited to invite Dyer families and friends to join us on Monday 8/21 for a special viewing event for the Solar Eclipse. A letter with more detailed in formation went home in Friday folders this afternoon. Please be sure to review the letter, and return the signed permission form by next Wednesday 8/16, if you would like your child to participate in the outdoor viewing.

Birthday Wishes in Big Lights!

You may have noticed that birthdays can now be displayed on our school marquee. For just $5, you can wish your student a happy birthday during his/her birthday week. All proceeds benefit our "PAWS" initiative. (Summer birthdays will run during the last week of school.) To register your child, simply log into their MyPaymentsPlus account.

New Spirit Wear is Coming!

This year, our fall fundraiser will include Dyer/Mountain View Spirit Wear. While the fundraiser doesn't officially kick off until Curriculum Night, you can begin placing orders now. Simply text Dyerspirit to 25827 to visit our mobile website. Once there, you can browse, purchase, and even share the website with others. See the flyer below for a preview.
