Durham Nockamixon Elementary School, December 2015
A WORD FROM THE PRINCIPAL...
As we are now in the midst of the holiday season, it is a busy time of year for all of us. With the Thanksgiving Holiday just behind us there is still much to be grateful for here at Durham Nockamixon! As we look ahead in the coming weeks at concerts, festive celebrations and service projects, I would like to take a moment to share some of the highlights of November events.
As you know, last year we had our first Veteran's "Wall of Honor" which was very well received by our families. This year we expanded our celebration to include a breakfast, followed by classroom visits and an assembly tribute honoring our Veterans. The emotion and gratitude expressed by our Veteran's and their families was quite moving. This is a tradition which we would like to continue. Please enjoy the video clip below which highlights some of the event for you. Enjoy!
We are grateful to our parents for taking an active role in your child's education during parent/teacher report card conferences and your ongoing involvement in the happenings here at Durham Nockamixon.
Accompanying the close of the marking period, we held our quarterly school wide celebration of student accomplishments. This is always especially enjoyable since we pause to recognize the many kindnesses that our students extend to one another throughout the school. Our celebration also recognized students in each grade level who have met or exceeded goals in reading and/or math.
Wishing the best to you and your family this holiday season!
FIRE TRUCK RIDE!
