The Weekly Forecast - January 13th

The Academy of Environmental Sciences at DFES

Center For Inquiry visit

We have been invited to attend a one day conference at The Center For Inquiry this coming Tuesday. We wii have one person per grade level to attend. We will have further opportunities to visit and will be sure to send different groups. We will share a recap of this event with our faculty and staff in the days to come.


Tuesday PD

Dr. Doug will lead PD this Tuesday. Our goal is to provide content...however we want to ensure that we maximize our time by making these sessions as practical as possible.


Principal's meetings

I will be out for the second half of the day (11:30 a.m.) Wednesday to attend my monthly meetings. Please contact Mr. Stewart should you need assistance.


DFES parent magnitude presentation

Most should be aware of the presentation this coming Wednesday evening. The purpose is to have parents outside of DFES come to our school to hear details regarding our magnet school.


The goal for this evening is make this event hands on and give parents a glimpse into what students will experience beginning next year.


Faculty and staff members are not required to attend but can attend if you feel inclined to.

Good News Club

We have partnered with Grace Covenant Church off of Dreher Shoals Road. As a result we will serve as a host site for a Good News Club. This is a voluntary after school program for students in third - fifth grades.


The group will meet once a week (Wednesday) for five weeks beginning January 29th. The will meet in the cafeteria from 2:45 until 3:45.


Information will be sent home to third through fifth graders this Thursday. We will look to expand this to primary students later. Should a parent have students in the primary and the upper grade levels they will be allowed to have the younger sibling attend as well.


Please return or send parent permission forms to A. Newman when/if received.


This should be a mutual partnership as the church is also looking to volunteer and support our school where possible.


More details to come.

Happy Birthday Wishes!
