Great Job Bears!

Thank you students and parents for all your hard work during our digital learning days this week! We are so grateful that the snow and ice didn't stop our learning! Don't forget that Digital Learning Days count as school days which means Monday is still the 100th day of school! We are looking forward to celebrating that milestone with our bears!

Dyer Fun Run is Coming!

Parents! This year’s main fundraiser is the Dyer Fun Run! It’s a 9-day program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on Tuesday, 1/30. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on Thursday, 2/8. With our big goal of raising $12,000 for leveled reading books, we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun.


Students will also experience an amazing character theme, CASTLE QUEST! an English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters.


Donations will go toward leveled readers and to the entire 9-day experience. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support!

Georgia Parent Survey

Parents,

Please help us improve our school by taking a few minutes to complete an important survey for the State of Georgia.


The Georgia Parent Survey is from the State of Georgia and assists with our College and Career Readiness Climate Star Rating. You may complete the State survey on your computer, smartphone, or tablet or in the Dyer Media Center. We would like ALL parents to complete this State survey, and all responses are anonymously submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Please click here to access the State survey.


We hope you will take a few minutes to complete this important survey to help us improve Dyer Elementary. Thanks for your support!

Bear Reader Program

The Bear Reader Program has begun. There are no special reading logs required. We are asking that the students read at least 20 minutes for five days of the week. The students already have reading logs that they have as part of their homework. Fill out the homework reading log every day. At the end of each month, the teachers will e-mail Mrs. Langford with the names of the students who have read at least 20 minutes for five days of the week. The students who complete this monthly reading goal will earn a brag tag. Brag tags are fun dog tags. The children will be able to collect a new brag tag at the end of each month. Let's see who can collect them all!

Birthday Wishes in Big Lights!

You may have noticed that birthdays can now be displayed on our school marquee. For just $5, you can wish your student a happy birthday during his/her birthday week. All proceeds benefit our "PAWS" initiative. (Summer birthdays will run during the last week of school, and during your child's birthday week.) To register your child, simply log into their MyPaymentsPlus account. Note: please allow 24 hours for processing.
