Parent Support Videos

Below are some helpful videos to answer some Frequently Asked Questions from parents

ACCESS Testing- English Learners

For our students who are fortunate enough to speak a second language, ACCESS testing has begun this week. Our wonderful EL Resource teachers, Mrs. Schaffer & Mrs. Shumaker, will be working with your child over the next few weeks to engage them through this process.

CS PTA: Cabinet Nomination Form

If you are interested in taking an active role (President, Vice President, Secretary, or Treasurer) in our PTA next year, please consider completing the attached nomination form and submitting it to the school.

Yearbook Pictures

If you have not already done so, please consider uploading a picture of your child that may be used as a part of the 20-21 yearbook within the next 2 weeks. Additionally, each class will participate in a classroom picture via Zoom (gallery view) and details are coming soon.

"Squishy" sent home on March 18th

On Thursday, March 18th students will receive a "squishy" to be brought home (remote students will have it distributed during the material pick up). During each class' Town Hall meeting with Mr. Kyle on 3/15, students discussed the importance of recognizing what our bodies need. It is important to remember to take movement breaks, drink plenty of water, practice deep breathing, and finding easy ways to stay focused (ex: handheld squishy). Students can use the squishy as a tool to help them stay focused while Zooming. We discussed that it is not a toy to be bounced or thrown, but rather something that should be used appropriately to help them learn.

Spring Break

D93's Spring Break starts March 29th-April 2nd. Monday, April 5th is a student non-attendance day (no school). April 6-7 are remote learning days for ALL students. Students return to school (in-person or remotely) on Thursday, April 8th (new schedule: 8:45-12:50 pm).
