Roaring with Spirit- Spirit Week 2015
This year's Spirit Week had us "roaring" with our Daler Pride! Students enjoyed an assembly featuring high school athletes and performers who spoke about working hard. Wacky Wednesday and Crazy Hat Day were favorites! We are very proud to be part of SEM and Farmingdale.
Congrats to Kayden!
Kayden won the 3rd grade Crazy Hat contest for his creative hat, showing spirit through the seasons.
Chief Inspiration Officer for the week!
Dylan came up with some of his own quotes to inspire us this week when he had the class job of "Chief Inspiration Officer."
