Message from Principal Pease
Staff are ensuring that our students are outside as often as possible and with the onset of fallish weather and the focus upon utilizing outdoor spaces, please be sure your child has proper gear; including boots, jacket, and a change of clothes. Consider hats and mittens as well as the mornings are often quite cool.
Please remember to have your child bring a watter bottle to school.
Thanks to all our families for their diligence in screening children before they leave the house. Please continue to screen for the following symptoms: fever and chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headaches, new loss of taste or smell, congestion or runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. If the symptoms are present keep your child home and contact the school nurse for further guidance. This is helping to keep us all healthy!
We are looking forward to welcoming you into DCS for our Open House next Wednesday, October 6th from 5:30pm-7:00pm! We ask that you screen at home, we will take temperatures at the door, that you wear a mask and maintain a distance of 3 feet while in the buidling.
Enjoy the weekend, Nicole

Walk to School
Kindness in Kindergarten with Mrs. Ellingwood
Kindergarten is off to a great start! There is so much to learn about how school works, and it takes time to build the stamina for our full days, but this wonderful community of learners is off and running! In math we are working and playing with numbers to 10, Literacy is all about rhyming and Letterland characters, and in Social Studies we’re learning about symbols of our country, as we create our own classroom rules to live by. In science we’ve made connections between our classroom and school communities, and social insects, as we’ve explored what a scientist does. Exploring a bee hive, and the tools of a bee keeper, observing a monarch caterpillar grow into a butterfly, and challenging themselves on the playground have rounded out our first month of school!

Eyes on Owls Presentation-October 29th
Teachers and students can purchase copies of Mark's award winning book, Owling, signed and personalized by the author, either at programs or by emailing mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. Books are available for $18.95 (plus tax & shipping if applicable).
Owling was chosen by the American Association for the Advancement of Science as 2020's Best Sceince Book for Middle grade Students. However, Owling is a favorite of owl lovers from 3 to 103!"
For those that do not know, the DCS' mascot is a Raven. We are hoping to be able to provide our new students with Raven t-shirts. Until then, we have a DCS Gear store through which you can order items for your child and family.
Please remember to update Pick Up Patrol
One of the aspects of a new school year that can be challenging is the bus routes. It takes time for new drivers and students to get used to the timing of the pick ups and drop offs. Each day has gone a bit more smoothly.
Please help us by updating any changes in drop off or pick up through Pick Up Patrol.
