I'm issuing a challenge to you...do you accept?

Everyone likes to be recognized for work well done, for doing someone a special favor, for being a partner in crime, and for surviving a particularly bonkers week. For some, being recognized makes it all worthwhile! I am issuing a challenge to each and every Delaware staff member. Take 3 minutes of your time to recognize one or more of our staff members this week! It takes almost no time at all, and you will make someone's day! When anyone at our school is recognized using this system, I receive a notification of who sent it and who received it, so...accept this challenge and let someone know how much you appreciate them!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Now that the SuperBowl is over, we can focus on more important things like Valentine's Day! Enjoy this little ditty from SNL...it was difficult to find something clean enough to share with everyone, but I think I found it!

Twin Day is Coming - Friday, February 19

Start planning now for TWIN DAY on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19! (Not this Friday...next Friday!) Find a friend and dress alike! We are going to have a fun contest for best dressed, so don't be left out!

EXPLORE! is Coming! Registration begins Feb 08!

Summer School has been re-imagined, and it's going to be FANTASTIC!! EXPLORE 2016 will provide meaningful, fun, engaging, and all-new options for students! Gone are the days of "Moving Up to 3rd Grade" and here to stay are themed courses that will feel more like a summer camp than summer school! Thanks to Elaina Whitson who has volunteered to serve as our EXPLORE liaison! We will have a couple of mobile devices set up near the front of the school so parents can register their children online. We will be making a BIG push to get our students enrolled, and I'm so happy to report that Delaware will serve as an EXPLORE site for 2016! There will be two sessions, one in June and one in July, for a full 8 weeks of summer programming. In your newsletters home, please let parents know that EXPLORE is coming, and it's going to be so much fun!!
