Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Dolphin Family,


It was so wonderful to have in-person conferences recently. I appreciate all of you who met with your child's teacher either in-person, by phone, or via Zoom. Many of you checked out the DES lost and found while you were here. If your child is missing something, please review the picture below and if something looks familiar and is missing from your closet, call us.


Following Thanksgiving, we have a few short weeks until Winter Break. Children--and adults--can get extremely stressed and overwhelmed during this time. We will continue to work with our Dolphins on using breathing strategies, taking a moment to regroup, and to ask for help when a time out is needed.


If you choose to keep your child home to quarantine, please notify Ms. Korell so we can have the most up-to-date attendance. If your child shows symptoms, please keep him/her home.


Cookies and Cocoa returns this year! Please mark your calendar for this extra-special PTA event planned for December 10 at 6:00 PM. Stop by to get in the holiday spirit, sing some carols, and snack on a cookie or two with your cocoa. There will be special musical guests that evening and you do not want to miss this!


Thank you for your continued support for DES this fall! I am so thankful for the Denton Elementary family and community. Have a relaxing and wonderful Thanksgiving!


All my best,

Susan R. McCandless

Proud Principal of Denton Elementary School
