Dunn's Corners School
Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe
October 1, 2021
Good afternoon DCS!
This month, our schoolwide theme is skills for learning: listening, focusing attention, using self-talk to stay on-task, and being assertive when asking for help with a learning task. In our morning announcements and school assembly, we’ll be reminding students of these skills, which help students be successful learners.
Second Step lessons teach skills for learning. You’ll be receiving Home Links describing why these skills are important and including fun activities to do with your child to practice them. We hope you enjoy them!
Please tell your child’s teacher if you’d like more suggestions about supporting skills for learning at home.
We will be re-establishing our school improvement team. Please complete this form if interested by October 8, 2020.
Finally, remember to go directly to your child's teacher for any questions, concerns, positive feedback, or for information about the school day.
We will be using #dcsanchors all over social media. Look for it on twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
Have a great weekend!
Mr. Morrone, Proud Principal of DCS!
