Dayton Consolidated School Update

October 20, 2022

Hello Dayton Consolidated Families!

How are we already in the middle of October?! Minus a few days of rainy weather- fall has been good to us. Students have had many chances to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. Classrooms continue to practice/reinforce routines and dive deeper into their learning.

We had a tremendous turnout at our first Community Club meeting in October. I am very hopeful for a wonderful year ahead with the support of our school community. Our next meeting is Monday, November 7th at 6:00 p.m. in the art room at Dayton School. We need your support. Please consider attending.

Students are at the tail end of completing their NWEA testing (Northwest Evaluation Association) Assessment in Math and Reading. This adaptive test is given to all students beginning in grade 2. There is no set time limit for answering questions. Our students take the test three times a year (fall, winter, and spring). The information gathered from this assessment helps guide teachers in their planning for instruction. More information will be shared by your child's teacher at fall conferences.

We have several upcoming events. Please stay tuned to this newsletter and our Thursday folder for more information.

In the meantime, if I can be of any assistance, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Dayton Consolidated School's events are listed at the bottom of the spreadsheet.

We need your help at drop off and pick up!

Please be sure to note the following:

  • For the safety of the students, PLEASE make sure students are not getting out of the car towards the inside lane.
  • Students in the right lane (closest to the school) should only get out of the car on the passenger's side.
  • Students in the left lane should only get out of the car on the driver's side.
  • Please NEVER attempt to pass a car in front of you while you wait. We have students and staff moving to and from cars.
  • Please have your students ready with their bags on when you get to the drop-off location.
  • We unload 3 cars at a time (both lanes). Please pull all the way up, ensuring we maximize our relatively small parking lot.
  • PLEASE be sure to display your orange nametag at the end of the day. Brains get tired at the end of the day, and there are times when we are left guessing who may be sitting in the car. This slows the process down.

Thank you for your help in ensuring students and staff remain safe!
